New Relic for Web Apps

Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

New Relic gives us the performances of our application. Monitoring the application becomes a very crucial part, it gives us whether the servers are running, from where the runtime errors are coming, it even provides the database query performances. We are using New Relic in the Monitory and software testing department.
We are using it for the basic server monitoring also, we have layers in the application, data layer, orchestration layer etc. So each layer has its functions. Using New Relic we are monitoring each layer and web server in order to sort out the errors easily and effortlessly.
  • It is very easy to use and implement in your application.
  • Basic Monitoring service will tell you about your application's performance and whether it is working well or not.
  • Visualisation is what I like the most. Gives you the graphs.
  • Database-related errors also can be monitored using New Relic.
  • For small companies the price is very high.
  • Sometimes I feel the response time is too much. There are some times where I have to wait for minutes to load the software.
  • The dashboard they provided can be simplified, and can be made more user-friendly.
  • It surely helps us to build more robust applications.
  • Due to the monitoring, the error can be easily sorted out.
  • Less iterating time for a specific function or piece of code.
  • Saves tons of time on debugging.
In my organisation it helps to reduce the time for debugging. Monitoring the application constantly gives you the power to sort out errors in runtime. The performance of the application increases. Also, it helps our customers in several ways, which helped us to improve and get more profit for our company.
New relic can be really helpful in reducing the migration risks. We can use it to measure the error rated before the migration and after migration to come to a better conclusion on the risks of migration and can target the points that can be improved. However the point of reduced price is something tricky here, although the base features are not very pricey but add ons can increase the cost a lot, which can be improved.
Surely yes. I can't imagine our application without New Relic now. The time for debugging has been reduced. The features like monitor performance, visualization and dashboards tell us the errors and sort it out as soon as possible. So it surely helped us to develop our application faster and in an very efficient way.
New relic let's us have transportation over the entire network infrastructure, which is a very important feature which makes new relic stand out. It provides an extensive monitoring experience, wherein we can compare multiple applications unlike the other tools.
If you have full-fledged web application such as a website then New Relic is very good. But for small companies the price might be high. If you have backend servers which are connected to the Android and IOS apps then New Relic might not be good, there are some other alternatives such as Mixpanels.
