Introduction to the query builder

With the query builder, you can run queries of your data to create custom charts and other visualizations. You can also build custom dashboards containing multiple charts.

Why it matters

Modern business systems are a complex maze of data-generating elements. You need an easy, solid way to fetch, analyze, and visualize the never-ending stream of data flowing from your daily working activities.

Use the query builder to:

  • Quickly access your data and build customized charts to learn and understand the health of your infrastructure, applications, and other services.
  • Add charts to your dashboards to obtain a complete real-time view of the state of your system.
  • Share your charts with colleagues or users in just two clicks.
  • Create NRQL alerts from the queries you build and run.

Before using the query builder, we recommend reading:

Also note that our NerdGraph API gives you access to more powerful querying features. For example, you can run queries across multiple accounts, run asynchronous queries, and more.

To find the query builder, go to one.newrelic.com > Query builder.

Use the query builder

The query builder has two modes:

  • NRQL mode, which lets you write queries with the New Relic query language. To learn about how to use that mode, see NRQL query builder.
  • PromQL-style mode, which lets you write queries in the Prometheus query language. To learn about using that mode, see PromQL-style query builder.

To browse your data and create charts visually, without performing queries, you can use the Metrics and events explorer.

Use and share charts

Once you have built a chart you can:
