Mobile monitoring has an HTTP requests UI page that helps you better understand HTTP requests associated with your mobile app and how those network calls are affecting performance.
This document describes the Enterprise-level HTTP requests page. Non-Enterprise accounts will see the legacy HTTP requests page.
Find and use HTTP requests page
To view Mobile monitoring's HTTP requests page:
- Go to one.newrelic.com > Mobile > (select an app) > Network > HTTP requests.
- Use our standard page functions to look for trends in the HTTP analysis charts.
- Target specific request and response attributes by grouping, sorting, and filtering the data.
Understand HTTP request data
Here are some places to find the most important HTTP request information:
- Response time chart
The response time chart shows how your app's network calls are performing across percentiles. Use it to compare the average response time to the 1st, 50th, and 99th percentile. Percentiles let you filter out outliers that may be making your average response time higher than expected.
- HTTP errors and network failures chart
This chart shows the unsuccessful network calls your app is experiencing. Select the chart title to go to the HTTP errors page for more detail on the errors and failures.
- Total requests
Sort by Total requests to identify which network requests are being used most frequently. The reason this can be helpful is because your slowest network calls may be only infrequently used, while more frequently used requests might be more worthy of optimization even if they are not the slowest.
For a description of the non-Enterprise HTTP requests UI page, see Legacy HTTP requests.
Group, sort, and filter HTTP requests
|If you want to...||Do this...|
|Group and sort HTTP requests in different ways||Make selections from the Group by and Sort by dropdowns. By default, the HTTP requests page is grouped by request domain and sorted by average response time.|
|Filter for specific HTTP requests||Select an HTTP request from the Errors and failures list and/or select multiple filters from the Filter dropdown.|
|See or remove applied filters||The filters you select are displayed next to the filter dropdown. To clear filters, select the
|Change the time window||Select a new time period from the time picker dropdown.|
|View information for a specific app version||Using the Versions dropdown, select the version for which you want to see charts and lists.|
View and share HTTP request data
To view any HTTP requests chart in Insights:
- Select ellipses for any chart.
- Select View query > View in Insights.
- Optional: Add the data to a dashboard, or share it by using a permalink.
- To delve deeper into your request data, query
MobileRequestevents and attributes.
View legacy HTTP requests UI page
Accounts that do not have an Enterprise-level subscription see a different HTTP requests UI page:
- View legacy HTTP requests UI
To view your top five domains or drill down into details about specific HTTP requests:
- Go to one.newrelic.com > (select an app) > Network > HTTP requests.
- Optional: Select the Sort by and Hide < 1% throughput options.
- To view or hide all requests made by your app, select Expand all or Collapse all.
- To view details for a specific host or HTTP request (including request time, average throughput, and data transfer), select its name.
- View legacy drill-down details
Use any of New Relic's standard page functions to drill down into detailed information. In addition, from the HTTP requests page, you can drill down into detailed information about specific requests, including:
- Top five HTTP request times
- Average throughput
- Average data transfer
If you want to... Do this View information to a specific version of your app
Select Versions from the side bar (if applicable).
Change the time period Use the time picker below the New Relic menu bar. View the related app's transactionThis feature is not available when the related app has distributed tracing enabled.
- To view the related app's transaction: Select App server drill-down, then view the Transactions page for the app associated with this HTTP request.
- To return to the HTTP requests page, select your browser's Back function.
