In the Entity explorer, an entity's Dependencies page shows a filterable list of all the applications, services, databases, and hosts connected to the entity. It shows upstream and downstream dependencies, and provides paths to explore them.
Similar to service maps, the dependencies page helps you understand how all of your upstream and downstream services are connected. It also uses the same color coding system used by service maps to show you what's performing well and what isn't.
To view an entity's dependencies, make sure your app uses the minimum required APM agent version:
- C 1.0.0 or higher
- Go 1.11 or higher
- Java 3.9.0 or higher
- .NET 4.2 or higher
- Node.js 2.0.0 or higher
- PHP 4.19.0 or higher
- Python 126.96.36.199 or higher
- Ruby 4.3.0 or higher
To view dependencies for applications, services, databases, and hosts connected to an entity:
- Go to one.newrelic.com, select Entity explorer, and select an entity.
- Select Dependencies.
- To drill down further, filter the apps, services, databases, or hosts.
You can filter the dependencies page to view specific things that report to the entity. Dependencies include:
- Services: APM-monitored applications and services.
- Mobile applications: your mobile apps.
- Browser applications: your front-end browser apps.
- External services: external services monitored by APM. External services include out-of-process services such as web services, resources in the cloud, and any other network calls.
- Databases: your application's database and cache data. Databases are agentless. Because of this, alerts cannot be set for the database, as only the service call is reported to New Relic.
- Hosts: your infrastructure (servers and hosts).
