Naming changes to Interaction Traces
We've changed the naming scheme for Interaction Traces to be more clear. Instead of "ActivityClass#onCreate", you'll see "Display ActivityClass". If you want to change the name of a running Interaction, just call
New API methods for starting and stopping Interaction Traces
We've added two new methods to the NewRelic class API to give you greater control over starting and stopping Interaction Traces. The
startInteraction()method now just takes a string, no context needed. Use
endInteraction()to stop a running interaction.
@SkipTraceannotation to exclude methods from default instrumentation
While automatic instrumentation is one of the more convenient features of the agent, there are a few cases where it can get in the way. Should you encounter one of these cases, simply add this annotation to the method in question, and the agent will skip it during compile time instrumentation.
