New Relic uses public minions to execute your synthetic monitors. These minions are deployed in different data centers around the globe and are in charge of running your monitors.
Because of this, ensure your firewall allows synthetics network requests. Minion IP addresses are publicly available in JSON format, so you can easily read and parse them.
Please ensure your allow list or related configurations include both the IP and IP range lists as requests could be sent from either environment. The IPs contained in the IP-only, DNS name-only, and IP and DNS name list files have been added to the IP range list as /32 addresses to make allow list configurations easier. These /32 addresses are not new.
- You can automate your rules for your allow list based on these files.
- You can identify synthetic monitor requests using our standard headers or by adding a custom header to your ping / simple browser monitor, scripted API monitor, or scripted browser monitor.
- In S3 URL paths,
productionrepresents US-based accounts and
eurepresents EU-based accounts.
Minions are deployed on servers, and the agents are activated using non-personal credentials. IP addresses associated with minions running on servers are not personal data under data protection and privacy laws. For more information, see the Synthetic's security documentation.
IP addresses for released locations are subject to change. If a change is needed, we'll attempt to proactively notify customers prior to any changes via e-mail. You can also check the Explorers Hub for updates.
Additional IP address ranges will be added on October 3, 2022. Some customers may need to update firewall, bot detection, or related configurations to allow this traffic. These have been added to the IP range list, but will not be used until October 3, 2022.
The following table cross-references the synthetic's public minion locations with their location labels. You can query the
locationLabel attributes from the SyntheticCheck and SyntheticRequest events.
