New Relic for Web Apps

Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

New Relic is used for all our customer environments. We use it for monitoring and improvement purposes. I am a developer who is also started to play a role as DevOps day by day (thinking in DevOps concept is being mandatory each passing day as you most of you could notice). I really observe benefits on many topics in the context of monitoring and innovation especially for the improvement occassions.
  • It is a great tool to discover which processes are most consuming and improve your products.
  • It finds out bottlenecks easily with sufficient visualized graphs. For example, you can quickly get answers of where a received http request did come from and by which method / section (a remote call, db query, a calculation etc).
  • It is also possible to profile your JVM easily (if your app runs on JVM for sure).
  • It can feed your ES data, therefore link to for instance pager duty.
  • Display overall KPIs like rendering time and page load time of a web page. It can be also useful if your app also contains HTML UI.
  • It is not so easy to investigate data by filtering in a specific time window. I hope that UX will be improved. IMO, time picker is not user-friendly.
  • The learning curve might be plaguesome for an ordinal tech guy at first.
  • Don't know pricing terms /strategy or other suff, however our managers' complain about the highness :)
  • Predict bottlenecks before they go live.
  • Significantly improving performance.
  • Setting up is relatively easy for getting first rough insights because it is like plug and play for the applications.
New Relic provides us various insights belonging to the whole customer environment: how are our processes going on and where the bottlenecks are performance wise. Even we use its insights as dashboards in displaying on a giant screen television in our engineering office. My company gets benefits of its capabilities becaues our services are critical for our customers to keep all of them up and running all time.
If you have a product which is used by at least 1 customer or you plan to sell more you have to improve. That's why you are going to fix and improve each day. But where to start or in which order / priority? This means you need an APM tool for it. That tool is one of the best and probably what it is cut out for!
