Get started with Android monitoring

Mobile monitoring for Android monitors your mobile app, giving you a comprehensive view of your app's performance. It works for Android apps written using Java or Kotlin.

Compatibility and requirements

Before you install the Android agent, review the compatibility and requirements.

Install the agent

To access:

In mobile monitoring:

In NRQL and dashboards:

Custom data

Create and record custom events, interaction traces, and attributes to add details to your existing data and traces.

Then, view the custom events that you created in NRQL or dashboards.

Network requests

Enable the MobileRequest event feature so you can perform a full network analysis.

To further investigate network request error rates and response times, query MobileRequest and MobileRequestError events.

Crash analysis

Review detailed information using groups and filters to analyze trends that lead to crashes.

To view more information about crashes, create NRQL queries related to crash data.

Mobile SDK

Use the mobile SDK API to customize the default agent instrumentation.

Then, view those custom events and attributes.

Handled exceptions

Report exceptions so you can identify factors creating a poor mobile app experience.

To further improve performance, review MobileHandledException event records.


Boost the level of detail in crash event trails by adding breadcrumbs.

Then, query MobileBreadcrumbs events to see all breadcrumbs or just breadcrumbs related to crashes.
