New Relic’s integration into Cloudways Platform offers the developers the most comprehensive tool to manage the performance and monitor the state of their applications right at the code level.

It provides you the ultimate luxury to monitor your applications’ performance, gauge database query response time, keep track of error reports, and get a fast insight into web analytics, and cross application tracing. One thing more! You are constantly updated about the number of servers being used at a time.

This is really a much needed breakthrough for developers, as the combination of New Relic’s resilient features helps them perform their tasks without any hiccups.

The best thing about this addon is that all the data are available in real time. With the integration of this particular addon, you get the opportunity to keep a close eye on application response time. This is particularly useful when you have to keep track of the most time consuming transactions carried out via your website.

Another feature that developers should love is the cross application tracing. With this mechanism, they can easily keep track of multiple applications hosted on the server. So, if you are running a WordPress site and a Magento site, you can easily toggle between the two to see which application is performing better on your server. Well, that’s a plus point. Take it!

With New Relic on Cloudways, you also get the freedom to view a segmented map of your hosted applications. This will give you an insight into the performance of individual component of the application. The integration of New Relic on Cloudways has made it possible for you to readily access the performance data API. With this, you can easily monitor the stats related to server performance, page load times, number of transactions, and error rates etc.

New Relic is really efficient when it comes to database monitoring. The induction of New Relic on Cloudways platform provides you with the opportunity to manage your database resources effectively. You get first-hand information about query response time, SQL reports and query analysis, and database call response time. With New Relic you can effortlessly track the shortcomings of your SQL database and fix the issues within no time. What else you want?

What if there occurs an error within your application? Don’t worry, stay relaxed. New Relic comes with a built-in error reporting mechanism that generates and sends automated alerts to users when the application or the server is down. And with Availability Monitoring, our customers can know right away when their applications or servers become unavailable. The addon generates pings to attract customers to your website. The good news is that once installed you can use HipChat, Jira, and other alert messaging applications – already integrated in New Relic to your advantage.

The capacity analysis report gives you an insight into the number of application instances, which you can use to configure your application settings to gain optimum performance. What if your server resources are too limited to handle the load of application you have hosted. Worry not! You can also use the scalability analysis report to check response time, database utilization, and CPU utilization. This report helps you in analyzing the performance of your potential hardware resources, if they are suitable for your applications. If the need arises, you can scale up or scale down your server to match your needs.

One of the best advantages of using New Relic on Cloudways Platform is that you get detailed and comprehensive reports with regards to each and every aspect of your hosted application. From error reports, to application speed index, to number of deployments on your server, everything is available on a single dashboard. No wonder, it’s known as “Developer’s Best Friend”.

So, how much does it cost? Well, it’s FREE! Yes, we have already activated the New Relic APM Lite plan on all existing and new cloud servers. This is, however, limited in functionality. If you want the Pro plan of New Relic APM, subscribe to the Pro addon from Addon button in the top navigation bar.

I would also recommend you to check out the Knowledge base entries on how to use New Relic and how to upgrade to Pro Plan.
