Ruby agent v9.7.0

January 10, 2024Download


We recommend updating to the latest agent version as soon as it's available. If you can't upgrade to the latest version, update your agents to a version no more than 90 days old. Read more about keeping agents up to date.

See the New Relic Ruby agent EOL policy for information about agent releases and support dates.


Version 9.7.0 introduces ViewComponent instrumentation, changes the endpoint used to access the cluster name for Elasticsearch instrumentation, removes the creation of the Ruby/Thread and Ruby/Fiber spans, and adds support for Falcon.

  • Feature: ViewComponent instrumentation

    ViewComponent is a now an instrumented library. PR#2367

  • Feature: Use root path to access Elasticsearch cluster name

    Previously, the agent used the cluster health endpoint (/_cluster/health) to access the cluster name. However, this has been found to make startup unstable for large clusters. Now, the agent uses the more performant root endpoint (/).

    Our thanks go to @erikkessler1, @gremerritt, and @joshbranham for reporting the issue, suggesting solutions, and testing them. Issue#2360 PR#2377

  • Feature: Remove base64 dependency, use direct calls to String methods

    In version 9.6.0, the agent required the Ruby base64 gem as a depdendency to prepare for deprecation warnings in Ruby 3.3 and the gem's removal from the Ruby standard libraries in 3.4. Including base64 as a dependency has caused problems with version resolution in some environments.

    To resolve this, the agent now directly calls the String methods used in the base64 library in the new NewRelic::Base64 module.

    Thank you, @Earlopain, for submitting this change. PR#2378

  • Feature: Add Falcon support

    The agent now supports the web server Falcon. PR#2383

  • Feature: Remove spans with name Ruby/Thread and Ruby/Fiber

    Due to the lack of helpful information and the confusion commonly caused by the spans named Ruby/Thread and Ruby/Fiber, these spans have been removed. However, the agents ability to monitor instrumented code running in a thread or fiber will remain unchanged. PR#2389
