Index of synthetic monitors

In our synthetic monitoring tool, the monitors index lists all monitors associated with your New Relic account, and gives you a quick snapshot of each monitor's performance over the last 24 hours. Select an individual monitor to view a Summary page and get a deeper insight into its performance over time. Or, filter the list to quickly compare the performance of similar monitors.

Understand monitor metrics

Use the monitors index to access your monitors and view a quick snapshot of monitor performance. The index includes the following metrics:

  • Alert status: Indicates the status of any alerts on the monitor:
    • Green: No open violations
    • Red: Critical violation in progress
    • Grey: No alert conditions defined with New Relic Alerts
  • Monitor status: Indicates a status has been applied to the monitor, such as Mute or Disabled.
  • Success rate: The percentage of monitor checks that end in success. A multi-step monitor that does not complete all steps is considered a failure.
  • Locations failing: The number of locations that have failed during the given timeframe.
  • Period: How often the monitor checks run.
  • Monitor type: The selected monitor type.
