New Relic to mine performance data for business insights

Joab Jackson | Oct. 25, 2013
Software provider New Relic is extending its system administrator tools for monitoring the performance of applications to help business managers as well.

Beyond the Rubicon announcement, the company also updated its flagship APM software, the highlights of which Cirne also discussed during his keynote. 

The software now can monitor the performance of Node.js, an increasingly widely used framework for running JavaScript applications on a server. Over 10,000 New Relic customers asked for Node.js support, Cirne said.

To work with Node.js, New Relic partnered with Joyent, Microsoft Windows Azure Mobile Services, CloudBees and EngineYard. 

New Relic is not alone in its support of Node.js. Apigee also announced this week that it would support Node.js on its API (application programming interface) management service.

New Relic's APM software update also comes with the ability to create histograms and percentiles, which should provide administrators with more details about the historical performance of applications. 

The alerting system, which notifies administrators when an application is malfunctioning, has been revamped. 

The company has also released an app for the Apple iPad, which provides administrators with a New Relic interface for those times when the administrator is not in the office. 

The company will also release, by the end of the year, a new application for monitoring mobile applications on Android and Apple iOS devices. 

The mobile device monitoring software can supply a timeline for different activities, such as an application loading a screen, showing exactly where any bottleneck may occur. It can also provide performance information about the device's OS, as well as operational metrics on device components, such as CPU, database and memory usage.
