Introduction to the New Relic platform

New Relic provides an integrated platform where you can explore core capabilities like querying data and building charts, dig deeper into more curated observability experiences in the UI, and use our alerting and applied intelligence tools. With the New Relic platform, you can see and act on all the data throughout your entire ecosystem.

To access New Relic, go to one.newrelic.com. Or, if you report data to our EU data center, go to one.eu.newrelic.com.

Tip

This doc gives you detailed information about why New Relic's capabilities matter to your business. But if you want to skip ahead, just sign up for a New Relic account. (It's free, forever!) Then, after you install New Relic, you can start working with your data.

Quickly understand context

We provide multiple ways to understand your system's dependencies, so you can easily see how everything fits together and troubleshoot problems. Our platform gives you and your teams a connected view that cuts through complexity!

If you want to...

Use this

Have an overall view of your system, and drill down to get performance details.

  • Use the New Relic Explorer as the front door to our entire platform. Observe, group, and filter the performance data from all your system's entities, including applications, services, hosts, and containers.

  • Gain extensive visibility into each entity in your solution, its alert status, and how the entities are connected.

  • Use the New Relic Navigator to give you a high density overview of all your entities so you can detect any issues at a glance.

  • Use New Relic Lookout to spot entities recently experiencing deviations from expected behavior.

Provide context for your entities.

Use tags to illustrate relationships and contextual information for what you monitor. By thoughtfully tagging your entities, you can connect all the data your teams need to understand their increasingly complex and interdependent systems. For example:

See how each part of your system is connected.

Review service maps that illustrate your upstream and downstream dependencies.

Visualize the aggregated health and activity data from all you monitor.

Group and monitor any entities together into functional team-focused, project-focused groupings, or any other attribute, with workloads.

Fetch and analyze specific data.

Get more context while you query with the query builder, which surfaces data definitions as you craft and edit queries.

Create visuals that showcase your business needs at a glance.

Tailor custom dashboards for your unique needs.

Find a service or dashboard in a complex environment.

  • Search by name across all accounts in the unified search.
  • Filter the explorer by tags or text.
  • View everything you’re monitoring in one place, like entities or dashboards, across your organization.

View a list of all the dependencies for a service.

Use the dependencies tab in an entity summary to see all the dependencies of the entity you’re viewing.

Track activity as it moves across your distributed system.

Use our distributed tracing solution to analyze your complex environment.

Understand how everything is connected via API.

Use our NerdGraph GraphiQL explorer to manage all your entities, tags, and relationships.

Query your data more easily

On the Browse data menu on the top navigation menu you can easily access your basic telemetry data (metrics, events, logs, and traces).

Wherever you go in the UI, Query your data is available. No matter your level of proficiency with our query language, you can create custom queries and charts:

one.newrelic.com > Query your data: Build NRQL and PROMQL-like queries.

Enhanced dashboards

one.newrelic.com > Dashboards: Quickly create information-dense custom views into the data that matters most to you with dashboards in New Relic.

New Relic dashboards let you build better visualizations more easily, with more options to customize. Dashboard features include:

  • Perform NRQL queries and create charts and dashboards everywhere in the platform using the query builder.
  • Manage your charts and dashboards easily using our quick-access CRUD menus and editing options.
  • Explore and contextualize data with advanced tooltips and zoom in functions to monitor what your systems are doing in real time.
  • Search your dashboards for attributes and metrics.
  • Send data to your dashboards using our agents, integrations, and APIs.
  • Share dashboards or charts as a .pdf, or embed a chart in an external site.

Build on New Relic

If custom charts and dashboards don't solve your current challenge, we give you a framework for building React JavaScript applications that:

  • Live on New Relic , alongside your other New Relic-monitored data.
  • Feature highly tailored visualizations.
  • Display data from any source you want, whether from a New Relic-monitored entity or data from any service or API.

And you can use open source apps built by the community, and contribute your own open source apps.

Important

Beginning May 17, 2022, we no longer refer to our New Relic observability platform as "New Relic One" and have updated our documentation to reflect this change.

This is only a name change; New Relic continues to offer the same value you're used to receiving from the observability platform.
