Apache monitoring integration

Our Apache integration reports data from your Apache web server to the New Relic platform. You can view dashboards of your Apache metric data, create alert policies, and create your own custom queries and charts.

To get the most out of this page, select the installation method that fits your environment. You need a New Relic account before starting the installation process.

Use guided install to quickly see your data in the UI

The guided install is a single CLI command you can run to monitor your instance. It's a good option for small organizations, or for anyone who wants to test out New Relic.

Guided install

For a more permanent and scalable solution, we recommend the standard manual install of the agent: keep reading for how to do that.

Apache configuration options

The Apache integration collects both metrics and inventory information. This table provides a description for each config setting and whether it applies to metrics, inventory, or both.

Example configurations

Here are some example YAML configurations:

Labels

You can further decorate your metrics using labels. Labels allow you to add attributes (key/value pairs) to your metrics, which you can then use to query, filter, or group your metrics.

Our default sample config file includes examples of labels but, because they're not mandatory, you can remove, modify, or add new ones of your choice. The following example adds the attribute 'production:load_balancer' to reported metrics.

labels:
env: production
role: load_balancer

Metric data

The Apache integration collects the following metric data attributes. Each metric name is prefixed with a category indicator and a period, such as net. or server..
