New Relic adds support for Golang, SPA monitoring

Thor Olavsrud | July 12, 2016
The software-as-a-service application performance monitoring provider is adding support for a popular programming language used in microservices, and also offering greater visibility into single-page applications.

More responsive and engaging

New Relic Browser gives application developers and DevOps teams visibility into the performance of SPAs. Many companies have begun deploying SPAs as a way to deliver a more responsive and engaging user experience without requiring a full page reload to retrieve a new web page or content. The browser-based app acts as a shell, which doesn't change even as new content is called.

But Gowda notes that older application monitoring tools weren't designed to capture the single-page paradigm.

"The definition of what is a page is completely different for a single-page application," he says.

"Bionic's platform enables marketers to build dynamic, multi-channel media plans for their customers. The use of single-page applications allows us to deliver a seamless workflow for our customers, but were a black box for us in being able to pinpoint performance issues," John Swindell, vice president, operations, Bionic Advertising Systems, said in a statement last week. "New Relic Browser's support for single-page applications is key to what we're doing at Bionic and implementing it within our application was very easy. We now have insight into the performance of route changes in the application, allowing us to optimize and ultimately create the best end-user experience."

New Relic Browser allows customers to monitor any SPA with the following:

  • Framework-agnostic instrumentation that allows monitoring of any JavaScript framework of choice, including Angular, React, Ember, Backbone or custom frameworks
  • Reporting on SPA route-change performance by enabling software teams to track the transition of how the user went from one view to another view, alongside traditional page load performance, with component-level data that can be customized to create fully personalized SPA reporting.

New Relic's enhanced monitoring for SPAs is currently available in private beta. Gowda says the company expects it to be available to paying New Relic Browser customers later this year. It will require the latest New Relic JavaScript Agent.
