Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

The most important use of New Relic for us is API monitoring. With NewRelic we have a real-time update about the APIS health, so we have configured alerts that trigger messages in google chat when some API is not running well. Also, it helps a lot in problems investigations, providing a lot of data to understand what is going on. We have minimal use in frontend applications too, to monitor the performance of our SPA.
  • Monitoring application
  • Providing very good data to track problems
  • Alerts
  • Good SLA
  • Better integration of backend and frontend applications
  • Assign erros
  • Better frontend erros list
  • Improve the up time of the application
  • Increase user satisfaction
  • Help to understand the need of up/down scaling apps
For front-end applications we compared New Relic with Sentry, the most pro of [New Relic] is the capability the merge data from back-end applications, having a clear view of all the context. Another way, the Sentry is focused only on front-end applications and is not able to have this big picture of the context.

Not sure

Yes

Would you buy New Relic again?

For backend applications NewRelic is the best monitoring tool I had use. So for the propose of monitoring ECS or EKS pod and application NR provide a very great solution with a very good range of tools. Helping a lot in problem investiation about the app health and erros that happen.
