New Relic APM Other Advice

Chris Lawther
Senior Infrastructure Architect at General Electric
If you are looking to evaluate New Relic, compared it to other products, it is very powerful in terms of what it can do. However, it is a complicated to interpret some of the data which is provided with it. There is a trade off if you want to implement this product versus implementing something that is simpler and out-of-the-box, but not obtaining as much depth in what you can learn. It has some advanced plugins for EngineX, which is a web balancer that we use. So, we do integrate with these, which is a little bit outside of their normal realm. There is also an Apache one that we use. The integration is good. Once you figure out how to install it and read through the documentation, it works as anticipated. View full review »

You definitely need this product if you want scale and stability. It fulfills what it's designed to do. Their constant iteration of features means it will always keep us well-informed about that particular requirement about the software. We are also using New Relic with PagerDuty and Slack. They integrate pretty seamlessly. A couple of button pushes, and it was done. We are using the SaaS version. View full review »

New Relic has been in the business for a while. It offers a wide selection to attach a monitoring mobile app, server, and cloud. If you want to go with just one product, it fits all your needs. We were using the on-premise version before going to cloud. So, we were using it on the physical data center, then we migrate to cloud and started using it with AWS. We haven't seen any different between the two products. We have been able to monitor in both. View full review »

Evaluate it, because it supports almost all the popular run times. Most of the popular languages support this, like Java. So, it makes it adaptable and easy to use. I work predominantly on AWS. View full review »

The reason we chose New Relic is the pricing. I will rate New Relic APM an eight out of ten for review. Overall, New Relic is not as good as Dynatrace. I have to understand my own system and I like the New Relic APM dashboard. The software could be faster and more automated. View full review »

CTO at Elo7
I use other type of software for database, e.g., MongoDB and GraphQL. It is easy to integrate New Relic with these third-party softwares. I don't spend more than one or two days for integration, as it's very fast. It can monitor our codes and third-party codes in these softwares. View full review »

I would recommend to go with New Relic. It integrated well with Docker. They have Lambda support now, so it has been fairly seamless. I have only used the AWS version. View full review »
