This release of the Python agent includes a bug fix for reporting inaccurate metric values.
The agent can be installed using easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or can be downloaded directly from the New Relic download site.
Metrics may be reported with an incorrect throughput after communication failure with New Relic
For agent versions 5.2.0 through 5.4.0, metric throughput may have been reported inaccurately after experiencing network / communication failures with New Relic. The throughput reported for all metrics after this failure may have been abnormally high.
