"It is the industry standard to visualize quickly where performance improvements are needed"

What do you like best?

Easy to install, integrations for most major frameworks & platforms, API is easy to understand, lots of documentation, along with google analytics it can be a good source of insight on buyer behavior

What do you dislike?

It doesn't tell a complete picture. Performance is only one part of the app. It is good to measure an app once it has been built out, but fixing performance after the fact gets expensive. Needs another front-end analytics tool to know what is really going on with users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a current platform that provides New Relic integration extension or plugin, use that to group your data, if several apps share a server. Try New Relic along with Google Analytics to see where user pain points are, how each page is performing in relation to how expensive it is to run the transaction, and make tweaks based on where the greatest benefits would be with the most minimal effort.

For example, on an e-commerce platform like Magento, Google analytics can tell you where you're losing the customer (cart abandon, or category page), and New Relic's api can help you hunt down where you can speed up the transactions that impact checkout, or whether users aren't waiting for all products to load before leaving that page.

Ultimately, you can use New Relic along with other tools to decide how to improve ROI and page conversion for the app, but I found that New Relic alone was not very beneficial in deciding where to allocate development hours.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Did we need to add more server resources, could the app be optimized. Where is the performance being bottlenecked, what is the response time at the page level.

"The Best Alerting Software"

What do you like best?

I like the configurability the most, the app won't trigger all the alerts but it will alert depending on what we set for the threshold and the configurations we done. Also, it's very easy to debug and know the error came from because New Relic gives the exact information where you can find the error occurred,.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there might be too much noise and you need to know how to configure it. The other thing people might find a bit annoying is the pricing, it might be a bit high but given how easy it is to get notified and fix errors, I think it is worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are lots of alerting products out there and you might be wondering why you should use New Relic for your alerting system. New Relic is the industry leader in application level debugging. Whether it's the database or in the code somewhere, it would show where the error is coming from and makes it so much easier to attend to problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We want to make sure we get an alert for critical errors since our app heavily depends on users. We get instant alerts with New Relic and this lets our developers immediately work on a solution.

What IT Alerting solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Software, but needs better UI"

What do you like best?

I really like how New Relic presents the errors: it gives out the total count of each kind of errors, sorted from the highest occurrence to the lowest occurrence. The error rate chart is also really helpful.

I also like how new relic puts things into diagrams. There is the diagram that shows the transaction time distributions: how long did it take for the server to perform database queries? how long did it take for the server to do computations? These questions are critical in understanding what's going on.

What do you dislike?

I feel the UI can definitely be more intuitive. Currently, the UI had too many items on the left menu, and a beginner will usually get confused by what items they are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

New Relic is great if you want server side monitoring, such as errors, performances, and availabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use new relic to track all the errors on the server side. In the case of an incident, new relic gets really helpful for incident responses.

"Solid server monitoring tool"

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface, good alerting tools and a very robust set up that over shadows some more expensive options on the market. Development agency uses it near constantly to monitor our server usage.

What do you dislike?

Not much in the way of 3rd party integration available. Would be good to have hooks into messaging suites to log and broadcast wider issues instantly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into other providers first to make sure it meets your specific requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing the reporting of our server stacks with rapid response alerts. Quick and easy to read information as opposed to pages of descriptionless data.

"Very good API Monitoring tool "

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and understand from data shown. Good to maintain dashboards for multiple environments of the APIs. Also available on the mobile app, so it is easy to look into issues on the go.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes difficult to choose an API from a big list. Appdex is something that is specific to New relic and the developers/team need to get a sense of what it is to know the gravity of an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good tool and provides in depth analysis for APIs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring of APIs on Production. Monitoring Performance tests. Analysis of which call takes most time.

"Robust monitoring, but get's expensive fast"

What do you like best?

Great tool set to monitor our mission critical web applications. Ideally suited for a competent tech group.

What do you dislike?

The service is good for smaller monitoring tasks, however once your monitoring needs increase so does the cost. It can quickly add up as you see the value of monitoring more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use New Relic to monitor the availability of our eCommerce system.

"A great activity tracking software"

What do you like best?

It has great features of tracking crashes, API activities and the best one is that it provides insights on crashes already faced by different developers.

What do you dislike?

The iOS sdk had many memory leaks, which was drastically reduced in latest versions. But it still has memory leaks. The Ui can be worked upon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking fatal errors and crashes.

Checking health of APIs
