Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is a one stop shop and integrated with PagerDuty seamlessly. The solution is pretty self-contained.""It has helped us maintain a much higher uptime than we had previously.""Server uptime is its most valuable feature.""Sometimes, I monitor the user's time of response and use this information to improve the number of servers on the back-end. Or, I can use it to change my back log for front-end developers and improve their response times. It's very important in this case because I can improve the experience of the final user.""It has in-depth analysis using developer code for someone whose not traditionally a developer.""It gives insights to non-technical people about what technical issues are most important, how much it impacts customers, and potentially, where we should be targeting our development teams when they have time.""We are able to drill down and see what is going on in the system.""It has given us better insight into the performance of the system."

"This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.""This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.""The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.""People are very pleased with the implementation.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.""No issues with stability."

Cons
"We would like to receive more AWS-specific details from the New Relic Dashboard, like EC2 health.""We have had issues with our agents going offline.""They could improve the education process and how people understand that these tools are very technical. Right now, if someone was to pick it up from day one, it is a very steep learning curve.""The monitoring is only as good as the alerts that it produces. By having it set up fine grain alerting, it is a bit of a pain.""The price needs improvement.""I would like a feature where I can turn off alerting at a policy level. Thus, when a policy is inactive, I can shut down all of my alerts within the policy.""It is complicated, especially in how you interpret the data that it provides. If it had a bit more canned, out-of-the-box features, especially some of the reporting features, that would be more useful.""The integration and configuration of this product in our AWS environment needs improvement on the filtering part. I would like it to go more granular on accounts."

"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I recommend using the free version of New Relic. If you like the free version and understand its importance for your company, you can move to the trial. Then, you can migrate to the paid version.""There is a picture which goes to your browser and it monitors requests from other users. However, it's impossible to use now because the price is very high. The feature is very nice, but I tried it during the trial period, and the current price makes it impossible to use.""They gave us aggressive discounts when they were brought in for the first time, but they have also kept them for the year-on-year renewals, which has been absolutely fine.""The pricing and licensing are good if you have an account manager and a partner manager who are looking to help out.""The pricing and licensing are too high.""Because of budget, we are not using the mobile app part of this tool.""Comparatively, the pricing is expensive.""The pricing model is a little confusing for beginners. They find it a little expensive, and if you are using it already, then that is not good."

"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."
