Notes

This release of the Python agent includes bug fixes for the pika RabbitMQ library instrumentation.

The agent can be installed using easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or can be downloaded directly from the New Relic download site.

Bug Fixes

  • Using pika to make RPC-style calls from Tornado could result in an application crash

    When making a remote procedure call from a tornado web application using the pika RabbitMQ library's Tornado connection, it is possible for the tornado web application to crash. Pika Tornado connections no longer result in an application crash.

  • AttributeError generated from an unregistered application starting a MessageTransaction

    Applications which consume message transactions and do not call register_application can raise an AttributeError resulting in an application crash. This issue has now been fixed.
