App Speed Index

Think your app is fast? Stop guessing and start knowing with the App Speed Index. The App Speed Index leverages our Big Data to provide Big Insight to our customers. New Relic collects over 55 billion performance metrics and monitors 1.5 billion page loads on behalf of our 25,000 customers and their 450,000 application instances. All of that data equates to 3.5 terabytes of new data collected, stored and analyzed each day.

With the App Speed Index, our customers will be able to classify their application into a Peer Group of similar applications (ex. eCommerce, SaaS, Gaming, and Consumer Internet applications) and benchmark their app with industry peers. Find out your percentile rank within your peer group for end user and application response times, error rates, and application availability to find out how fast you really are.

Custom Dashboards

Have you ever wanted to see Network I/O graphs and End User Response Time graphs on the same dashboard?  What about some custom business metrics and application response time? Now you can with Custom Dashboards. With Custom Dashboards you can build any dashboard with any data that tickles your fancy. The best part about it? No Coding Required!  With Custom Dashboards all you have to do is click and pick, drag and drop, or instant copy an existing New Relic graph and boom — you’ve got a Custom Dashboard. This feature is only available to our Pro customers.
