There is a good bare minimum of required features for this tool, but if they are out to the in-depth analysis then finding a cross-dimensional relationship is not straightforward. It is difficult to implement. If you are concerned about how your services behave, then New Relic shouldn't be your first choice. However, if you are considering New Relic APM, is a very affordable choice. I would rate New Relic APM a seven out of ten.

I'm just a consultant. I'm not a partner or a user of the solution. I'm not sure if I have any specific advice to a company considering this solution as we are still in the early days of considering of this solution is the right fit. However, it's important to go through the process and examine a solution according to your company's unique needs. What works for our client might not work for everyone and vice versa. There needs to be a bit of research. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. It's a good product. It just depends on what you need as a company.

They seem to have a new pricing model, and I would advise others to look out and ask them before buying. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is that you don't always guess right. Without APM, you can guess where the problem is, but with APM, you can actually see where it is, which is nice to know. I would rate New Relic APM a nine out of ten. It is a good product. There might be another product that is better than this, but this is the product that I use and recommend first.

Our proof of concept has been successful. Getting an order in and reporting is an industry in itself, don't think it can solve the problems it's not trying to solve. It is an application performance monitoring tool. Don't try and make it anything else. The big problem with Splunk for us is that it can do everything. The thing that's nice about New Relic is it doesn't try and do everything, it does what it does. So far, it does it to satisfaction, but don't try and fill multiple holes in your toolchain with it. It's good at what it does. We had some pretty informed opinions on what it was going to do. We knew where it wanted us to get, and so far it has cost the amount we wanted it to cost and done everything that we wanted it to do. I would rate New Relic APM a ten out of ten.

We're just customers. We're end-users. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I would recommend the solution to other organizations. We've had a good experience with it so far. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate the solution at a ten. It's pretty much perfect for our purposes.

This is one of the best tools that I have used. I have recommended it to customers in the past and would continue to do so. In summary, this is a very good product and the only real problem is that the cost is on the higher side. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The solution is more mature than a lot of options on the market. If a company is looking for something that offers a unified scalable solution where they can monitor everything in one place, then NewRelic is definitely the option they should look out for. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

For people who are comfortable with the cloud, this is the best option and a product that I recommend. So far, our customers are all happy with it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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.

It easily integrates with PagerDuty, our on-call management and notification system.

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.

New Relic is the best choice because the product has good dashboards, scalability, and environments.

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.

Give it a shot. See if it meets your use case. I have used the on-premise and AWS versions. The versions are very similar.

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.

Give it a try, install it, and use it. I don't have to manage the server and worry about the database, storage, and VMs being up and running, etc. It is always there.

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.

If you are looking for this specific type of application to keep a record of your inventory, then it does exactly what it is supposed to do. We use their cloud version of it.

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.

Go with it. It is a good product. It gives us the visibility that we need in monitoring. The AWS version is easier to deploy than the on-premise version.

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.

I just starting using it, but the product is pretty impressive. We are hosting it through AWS.

In my opinion, New Relic is a good tool, and if a colleague was asking my opinion, I would say "Go ahead and use it!" It is a good solution.
