Bug fixes

  • As of today we verify that the "External ID" is configured to the AWS Role and we do not accept empty values. This protects customers from cross account attacks.

Bug fixes

  • There was a service name that was EMPTY in the Azure Cost Manager integration. We fixed it and now all services appear properly. The error was caused by a lag in the Azure query, a simple retry fixed the error.

New

  • Some of our AWS integrations now use the AWS Resource Tagging API (RTA) for fetching AWS tags. This reduces the requests related to fetching tags by approximately 90% for selected AWS integrations, and reduces throttling considerably.

    This feature requires new permissions: We sent a communication with instructions to all customers without the required permissions for the following integrations: ALB, CloudFront, DynamoDB, ECS, EFS, Elastic BeanStalk, ElastiCache, ElasticSearch, ELB, Kinesis Streams, Lambda, RDS, Route53, SQS and S3.

    The new permissions can be enabled till August 5th 2020. If you have questions or doubts about this change, reach out the New Relic account team.

  • Azure AppService Integration: WebApp slots are now supported.
  • AWS DocumentDB Integration: support for tags.
  • The following integrations have been launched as beta:

  • AWS SES integration is now enabled for all new regions
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 - 08:15

Bug fixes

A bug affecting the Service Plan entity of the Azure App Service has been fixed. The following metrics have been renamed as a result:

  • sent has been renamed DiskQueueLength
  • received has been renamed HttpQueueLength

All other metrics stay the same.

For more information, see the Azure App Service Documentation.

New

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that made the S3 integration stop fetching the bucketSizeBytes metric
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the S3 integration from fetching data for some buckets in regions other than us-east-1

Changes

  • Extended inventory is now disabled by default for all newly configured integrations
  • Decreased AWS IAM polling frequency to once every 60 minutes for all users. Default has been set to 60 minutes; more frequent polling is still possible by overriding the value

New

Three new Azure integrations have been released as beta:

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 07:00

New

  • AWS Trusted Advisor integration
    • New Relic now offers an integration with AWS Trusted Advisor. AWS establishes limits for each service in each account and region. Some examples are: number of Auto Scaling groups, number of EBS active volumes, and number of EC2 elastic IP addresses. AWS recommends watching these limits, and even allows you to enable automated actions and custom notifications. That data is now also available in New Relic.
    • For more information on how to enable the integration, check out the integration documentation.
  • Azure Cost Management integration
    • New Relic now offers a cloud integration with the Azure Cost Management service. It provides the accumulated costs in the billing period, grouped by cloud service, resource group, region and (if configured) custom tags.
    • For more information on how to enable the integration, check out the integration documentation.

Changes

  • Added new metrics for AWS ElastiCache Nodes
    • ActiveDefragHits
    • EngineCpuUtilization
    • StreamBasedCmds
  • Added the option of a 5min polling interval for the VPC integration
Friday, September 13, 2019 - 02:45

New

New Relic now offers a cloud integration with the Microsoft Azure Cost Management service. It provides the accumulated costs in the billing period, grouped by cloud service, resource group, region, and (if configured) custom tags. Learn more in the Azure Cost Management documentation.

Changes

Amazon AWS RDS cloud integration now has a couple of new metrics:

  • For each database engine: numVCPUs, uptime, diskIO, and device
  • For MS SQL engine only: memory, kernPagedKb, and process

For more information, see the AWS RDS monitoring documentation.

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 00:00

New

Changes

  • Moved ALB and NLB integrations under the ELB section to align with AWS
  • Renamed ELB integration to ELB (Classic)

Minor changes

  • AWS RDS: All charts in the dashboard now FACETed by database name
  • GCP: You can now see the amount of SDK API calls we make in the GCP Status Dashboard

Thursday, August 8, 2019 - 02:45

New

Three new Azure Database integrations are now available:

Changes

The Azure Cosmos DB integration has been updated to gather metrics through the new Azure SDK. Details on all the new metrics can be found in the new Azure Cosmos DB integration documentation.

For information on deprecated Cosmos DB events and metrics, see Azure Cosmos DB integration (deprecated). We strongly recommend migrating to the supported events and metrics in the new Azure Cosmos DB integration.

New

  • By default, Infrastructure collects EC2 instance metadata that includes public and private IP addresses, and network interface details. Now the AWS EC2 monitoring integration includes a toggle not to store and display these IP data as inventory or Insights events metadata.

Changes

  • The New Relic Infrastructure menu structure has been updated to make it easier to navigate the data.

    • Now the three supported cloud providers tabs (AWS, Azure and GCP) are always visible in the Infrastructure navigation bar.

    • All metrics for hosts are now grouped under a Hosts section. Metrics related to system, network, storage, processes are accessible using new navigation tabs.

    • On-host services such as Nginx, MySQL or Redis are grouped under a new Third-party services navigation item, while the Kubernetes cluster explorer can be accessed from the Kubernetes tab.

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 00:00

New

  • The AWS Elasticsearch integration has been updated with new metrics for clusters.

    • You can now monitor the total number of requests to the cluster and the response codes; rates and latency for indexing and search requests; queued tasks in different thread pools, and errors related to encryption keys. Most of these new metrics are useful to decide whether a cluster needs to be scaled up.

    • Additionally, you can enable the collection of some of these metrics at the node level.

  • The regionName attribute has been added to the New Relic Insights events collected by the Azure SQL Database integration: AzureSqlDatabaseSample and AzureSqlElasticPoolSample.

    • This attribute can be used for grouping and filtering down results in NRQL queries, dashboards and alert conditions.
