Health (alert) status

The entity explorer shows a color-coded alert status from New Relic Alerts for entities. For example, you may see a red alert status indicating a critical violation in progress.

  • To see what an alert status means, mouse over it.
  • To see details about an entity's alerting status, select the entity.

NRQL alert conditions aren't used to determine alert status because they aren't associated with specific entities.

Filter by tag or entity name

There are a couple ways to filter down to specific types of entities:

  • Filter entities by tags: Use Filter with tags at the top of the page. For example, you may want to filter down to only entities tagged with production, or only entities with a specific AWS region tag. For more about tags, see Tagging.
  • Filter by entity name: Use Search services by name at the top of the page.

New Relic One entity data retention

Data retention for entities depends on these factors:

Entity data from... Data retention
New Relic One entity explorer and search Data is available for eight days after an entity no longer exists, with one exception: data reported by integrations, such as Amazon AWS, is only available for one day after an entity no longer exists.
New Relic database (accessible with NRQL query) Data availability is dependent on subscription-related data retention periods.

As a result of these factors, a short-lived entity (like a cloud host) may not be available in the New Relic One entity list or by search, but its data may still be available via NRQL query.
