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.
Before you install the Android agent, make sure your app follows the compatibility requirements. As part of the installation process, mobile monitoring automatically generates an application token. This is a 40-character hexadecimal string for authenticating each mobile app that you monitor.
Follow the Android installation and configuration procedures for your environment as applicable. If you have problems with your Android installation, or if you do not see data in the mobile monitoring UI for your Android app, follow the troubleshooting procedures.
In mobile monitoring:
In NRQL and dashboards:
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.
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.
Review detailed information using groups and filters to analyze trends that lead to crashes.
To view more information about crashes, create NRQL queries to review Insights charts related to crash data.
Android SDK API
Use the Android SDK API for mobile monitoring to instrument parts of your code that are not instrumented by default.
Then, view those custom events and attributes in New Relic Insights.
Report exceptions so you can identify factors creating a poor mobile app experience.
To further improve performance, review MobileHandledException event records in New Relic Insights.
Then, query MobileBreadcrumbs events to see all breadcrumbs or just breadcrumbs related to crashes.
