Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

New Relic is used as a full-stack monitoring tool. It is used by various application teams within our organization for monitoring their application, server infrastructure, end-user, and synthetics. We have also started to leverage it for monitoring other cloud entities like lambda, RDS, etc along with Kubernetes clusters. It helps with monitoring and alerting mechanics and helps various notification methods.
  • Infrastructure monitoring both on-prem and cloud
  • Application and end-user monitoring
  • Alerting and notification mechanism
  • Can improve on side of synthetics monitoring
  • Can improve on NRQL from, enable us to query from multiple tables
  • Seems to be pushing new features frequently, better if users can be notified about the new add-ons in a bit of detail beforehand.
  • Helps in decreasing the overall down time for application
  • Pointing out the epicenter of any issue became easy
  • Alerting helps in notifying developers along with users to keep them updated about the scenarios
New Relic design and functionality helps in many ways from getting the performance metrics and real-time alerting. It helps in getting notified about the potential issues that can occur in the future beforehand, then decreases the overall downtime for the application. It also helps with the visualization of performance metrics with the help of dashboards with different types of graphs and tables.
New Relic helps us to enable a continuous monitoring process during the time to cloud migration then helps us in keeping track of any issues and make sure that the migration process does not affect the end-user with a bad experience. It helps in reducing the migration risk and accelerating cloud adoption. With the help of usage metrics, it helps us in understanding the requirements and thus also affects the cost.
I can not say that New Relic helps DevOps teams at every step of the development process, but once the application is ready to be deployed, the usage and other metrics help in understanding the reliability of the application, and once completed deployed, it helps in maintaining and improving the availability of the application with the help of the alerting feature.
Even though Catchpoint is an excellent tool when it comes to synthetics and end-user monitoring, also Amazon CloudWatch is a very good tool for monitoring cloud infrastructure, New Relic gives a complete solution of full-stack monitoring along with the features provided by other tools that help application teams to keep complete track of every component and metrics of their application in one place.

New Relic is best suited if you are looking for one point solution for monitoring all your instances and application under one umbrella, it will provide you options to monitor approximately everything on every side of your application you can think of. It will be costly and not much help if you are looking for very deep-dive monitoring of one particular feature like logging or synthetics.
