Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

We are using New Relic extensively for large scale state project which need[s] higher security compliant to monitor end to end application metrics and performance.
  • Dashboard.
  • Default navigation and segregation of layers of application components.
  • Less control over alert management when not need.
  • The cognitive alert doesn't recognize weekdays vs weekend traffic variation in the past when generating [an] alert.
  • We were able to retain our client SLA and managed application more effectively.
  • Some of the New Relic dependencies spilled over into [the] application which was our own fault by not creating a DI for 3rd party library when utilizing custom attributes.
My experience with New Relic was amazing after a day of training sessions and [learning] how well we can leverage this tool. Potential is high, but we were also limited by [the] security policies of [the] client to take full benefit.
We had cloud migration recently and New Relic metrics [were] used as a baseline reference to compare post-migration performance issues and troubleshooting. I couldn't imagine cloud migration without such [a] tool.
We haven't explored New Relic in DevOps yet, I tried adding deployment bookmark, but it was not friendly like a plugin in [the] marketplace. I had to write ps script to call the NR API endpoint. I expect improvement in that area.

New Relic is a great insight for large-scale application monitoring. Moving away from host-based pricing to the user and data-based price models was a good decision last year. In the Azure space, many of the metrics become duplicates to application insight or azure monitoring.
