New Relic integrates logs into application performance monitoring –
Consolidating log collection, correlation, and visualization into a single APM agent enables developers to find and resolve issues faster without having to install third-party configurations.
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FUTURESTACK—New relic (NYSE: NEWR), the observability company, announced enhancements to its Application Performance Monitoring (APM) to automatically collect logs in context with application metrics and traces. Logs are critical for observability, and automatically coupling log collection with APM allows engineers to immediately investigate relevant logs associated with their other telemetry data, helping them troubleshoot their applications faster. This new feature already improves 3X+ more value that New Relic customers receive compared to other observability platforms, which require over 13 different SKUs with disjointed experiences and legacy product-based pricing models.
Collecting logs can be a complex, manual, and often frustrating experience. Developers often need to request access to specific hosts and configure non-standard log forwarding to collect application logs separately from their APM metrics. To address these common limitations, New Relic has updated its Java, Ruby, and .NET APM agents to automatically collect and ingest application logs. With this new feature, New Relic makes logging easier for developers by simplifying the transfer of logs directly from the APM agent, providing logs in context, and improving the APM UI to display relevant logs that are automatically associated with other telemetry data for APM to reduce context. -switching. Engineers no longer have to worry about manual, non-standard log forwarding, and will still benefit from granular configuration options to customize log collection with the ability to unsubscribe at any time.
“Our customers have told us that they have two main issues with logging: the first is the ability to collect log data; the second is to contextualize the data to make it usable. When troubleshooting an issue, our customers shouldn’t have to switch context within the user interface to navigate the wealth of information available,” said Wendy Shepperd, Senior Vice President and General Product Manager of New Relic. “Now, with a single agent deployment for supported application languages, engineers have a simple yet holistic solution to quickly see and act on all their telemetry in context. The new feature automatically organizes data, such as entity GUIDs for related APM service entities, including application logs, so highly correlated telemetry logs are already visible right out of the box.
With the latest versions of Java, Ruby, and .NET agents for supported frameworks, New Relic customers can view application logs in context with APM metrics, traces, and events, eliminating the need to switch between screens ; collect and push logs to New Relic with little to maintain or rely on manual configurations; and access logs in APM with enhanced UI enhancements. Additionally, the update includes robust support for security, compliance, and control:
- Data security: Hide, obfuscate and prevent sending PII, PHI or any other sensitive data via detailed information. security settings.
- Ingestion Control: Use in-agent log sampling to manage ingested volume and avoid double billing to keep receiving 3X more value than other log management solutions.
- Conformity: Log collection disabled by default for HIPAA, FedRAMP, and accounts where high security mode is used, even after agent upgrade.
- Deactivation at any time: Disable automatic forwarding by configuring your agent at any time or from the Data Management Hub in New Relic.
New Relic application performance monitoring with the in-context auto-login feature is generally available for Java 7.7.0, Ruby 8.7.0, and .NET 9.7.2 agent versions. New Relic will enable automatic in-context logs for Node.js, Python, Go, and PHP agents in the coming quarters. For more information, read our blog post.
