New Relic

I think New Relic's APM is a great feature if you are running Ruby on Rails because ActiveRecord can abstract away the actual performance of your endpoint logic. It very easily allows you to identify endpoints that are taking too long, endpoints that have good throughput, and how the overall functionality is affecting the end-user experience. It also has many other monitoring features that can be great for companies that manage their own infrastructure.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor works great for our needs. We do however wish that it worked for Linux Operating Systems.

Pros

New Relic

  • Monitor traffic rates and server usage on real time
  • Helps engineers to dive deep into an issue and guides them to the root cause
  • Provides high-level system health status of different components (ie. Server capacity, RPM, page load time, error rate..)
  • Near real time reporting
  • Links with deployment so easy to understand if an issue has occurred after a particular release

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

  • Alerts us when a server, storage device, or network device goes offline.
  • Alerts us when a critical service running on a server stops running.
  • Alerts us if files change, are removed, or are created.
  • Alerts us if an unauthorized file type has been created on a monitored system
  • Generate up-time reports for Executives.

Cons

New Relic

  • It would be helpful if use cases for particularly a Windows installation, were provided to help determine which set of configuration files would be the one a group would want to control. I.e. potentially with a department trying to do DevOps, it's difficult to determine which team needs to have responsibility for what at times. The reason I mention this, is New Relic seems to in many ways be a tool that's useful for DevOps-related processes and staff.
  • On the main New Relic One site, sometimes a refresh option is available for new features. It would be helpful to see what the new features are in advance before trying this out. Particularly if doing a demo or a working season with another team.
  • I'm not aware of a page or specific site which describes/summarizes all of the different NR Products and their features.
  • Sometimes it's tricky to determine which product to use to accomplish a task.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

  • It does have bulk settings tools to set up bulk settings for multiple devices, but to me it could be a bit easier to use. However, I ran into a snag and reached out to support and they are great.
  • It does not support Linux Operating Systems.

I have not yet found any similar product that offers me this range of features to help us keep our online service fast and reliable. Besides this, New Relic is constantly evolving by adding new plugins to emerging technologies and platforms. Server performance measuring features are a key point as our user database grows.

As an engineer, New Relic has been very quick and easy for me to pick up/install/use. It has been less easy for some of the less technical-minded folks in our organization and their UI still is inconsistent multiple years after refactoring their platform to be New Relic One.

There are times I feel that the initial support is lacking. And in some cases the automated responses of not hearing anything are annoying if the reason why there has been no movement is because we are still waiting to hear back from NR support. So, i think they should loose the automation as it can seem disingenuous

The documentation was clear and concise; the only issue we ran into was custom application naming. Due to HTTPD mod_fcgid and the need for the application name to be set in php.ini (not in .htaccess or the virtual host directive) ... we had issues setting this up.

Alternatives Considered

New Relic

We selected New Relic since it was very dynamic and versatile to use. It works well in all aspects of monitoring, and observability and would allow having a focus on collaboration with different repeatable processes. Also, New Relic has a good focus on working well with CLI, UI, and API types of work.

We tried some open source solutions. But, they were much more difficult to set up and maintain. PA is easy to use "out of the box". We looked at other paid solutions also, but they were cost prohibitive, since we are a small institution.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

  • It has decreased our critical services downtime, because we are able to VPN in and fix issues as soon as Power Admin alerts us of an issue. ROI has been excellent.
  • It allows us to catch issues before they become critical by alerting us on errors that show up in our Event Logs.
