Service maps are visual, dynamic representations of your architecture. Maps automatically show your app's connections and dependencies, including applications, databases, hosts, servers, and out-of-process services.
In the New Relic UI, your out-of-process services are referred to as web external or background external data.
Health indicators and performance metrics show you the current operational status for every part of your architecture.
Identify operational issues
Service maps are color-coded to provide a quick look at the current status of your environment. Select nodes on a map to view additional performance metrics, and a full list and health check of each node's connections.
The map automatically connects nodes into the map, so you can see which apps on the map connect to others. This helps you troubleshoot and assess the impact of a performance problem between a calling application and a specific database.
With service maps, you can view your service and its status in the context of its up and downstream dependencies. Use maps to identify the root cause when troubleshooting an incident.
Check out How to use service maps for details about these topics:
- View all your entities without any setup: most entities are automatically connected to their dependencies in service maps.
- View entities all across your organization's accounts.
- view your uninstrumented entities and detect gaps in your instrumentation.
