Telemetry SDKs: Report custom telemetry data

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.

Tip

To use our Telemetry SDKs and the rest of our observability platform, join the New Relic family! Sign up to create your free account in only a few seconds. Then ingest up to 100GB of data for free each month. Forever.

Requirements and compatibility

To build with the Telemetry SDKs, you will need an Insights insert key.

Tip

New Relic has contributed the Telemetry SDK to the open source community under an Apache 2.0 license.
