Our Telemetry SDKs are an open source set of API client libraries that send data to the New Relic platform. Under the hood, these SDKs rely on our core data ingest APIs: the Metric API, Trace API, Log API, and Event API.
We offer open-source integrations for telemetry tools like Prometheus, Istio, and OpenCensus that were created using our Telemetry SDKs. If those solutions (or our other integrations) don't meet your needs, you can use the Telemetry SDKs to create your own telemetry data solutions.
The Telemetry SDKs use our Metric API, Event API, Log API, and Trace API, which all require a license key, so you'll need a license key for the account you wish to send data to.
New Relic has contributed the Telemetry SDK to the open source community under an Apache 2.0 license.
The Telemetry SDKs are open source software on GitHub. Use the language-specific GitHub links below to get library details, coding examples, and procedures for how to use the SDKs. We currently support the following libraries, with more to be created in the future:
