Performance Monitoring  with New Relic

Performance Monitoring with New Relic

Learn how to use the New Relic platform to monitor the performance, dependencies, and bottlenecks of your entire stack in real-time.

About this course

You can use the New Relic platform to monitor the performance, dependencies, and bottlenecks of your entire stack in real-time. 

In this course, you'll learn how to identify your most critical health indicators and performance metrics for your applications and hosts, get notified when problems arise, and isolate root causes faster so you can discern exactly what instigated the problem and work to prevent it from happening again.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to:

  1. Identify Critical Performance Metrics
    • Identify critical transactions to monitor and establish meaningful thresholds for performance.
    • Use key transactions to help monitor critical parts of your app more closely.
  2. Monitor the Health of your System
    • Interpret health status data for your applications and hosts using Health Maps views, filters, and toggles
    • Visualize your applications architecture with Service Maps to understand connections and dependencies
  3. Visualize Your Data
    • Add APM charts to Insights dashboards to help organize and monitor metric data in a centralized place
    • Use the New Relic REST API to create dashboard templates, instantly create dashboards, and save JSON files as backups.
  4. Uncover Problems Before they Arise
    • Use Synthetics to monitor your websites, critical business transactions, and API endpoints to uncover problems before they arise.
  5. Get Notified When Problems Arise
    • Manage alerts across all New Relic products to identify and resolve issues before they become problems.

Curriculum

  • Identify Critical Performance Metrics
  • Creating Key Transactions

    Learn how to create a key transactions, set alerting thresholds, and interpret key transaction-specific dashboards to monitor, manage, and track the most important business transactions independent of the overall application.

  • Identifying and Monitoring Key Transactions

    Learn how to use key transactions to monitor, manage, and track your most important business transactions, independent of the overall application. Learn how to use key transactions to set transaction-level alerting thresholds and access transaction-specific dashboards, topology maps, and SLA reports.

  • Monitor the Health of your System
  • Intro to Health Maps

    Learn how to monitor the health of your applications and their related hosts with New Relic Health Maps.

  • Intro to Service Maps

    Get visibility into your microservice architectures and understand how your distributed apps and services are performing.

  • Visualize Your Data
  • Adding APM Metric Widgets to Insights Dashboards

    Learn how to add APM metric charts to Insights dashboards to help organize and monitor metric data in a centralized place.

  • Managing Insights dashboards with the New Relic REST API

    Learn how to use the New Relic REST API to create dashboard templates to share across your organization, instantly create dashboards, and save JSON files for source control and backups.

  • Uncover Problems Before they Arise
  • Introduction to Synthetics

    Learn how to use New Relic Synthetics to monitor business-critical functionality and ensure that important transactions are taking place error-free with customized testing.
