HP Public Cloud Partner New Relic Launches New Features

Application Performance Management partner New Relic last week announced the availability of two new features – Application Speed Index and Custom Dashboards.

If you’ve not yet tried New Relic, HP Public Cloud customers can sign up with New Relic today free of charge.  All accounts start with 14 days for free Pro.

So what was announced by New Relic?  Bill Hodak, Director of Product Marketing at New Relic shared the following news.

App Speed Index

Think your app is fast? New Relic says that now you can stop guessing and start knowing with their App Speed Index. The App Speed Index leverages New Relic’s Big Data to provide Big Insight. According to New Relic they collect over 55 billion performance metrics and monitor 1.5 billion page loads on behalf of their 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 their App Speed Index, New Relic customers can 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. The Index is designed to let customers find their percentile rank within a peer group for end user and application response times, error rates, and application availability, to find out how fast they really are.

Custom Dashboards
Want 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?  According to New Relic their customers can use their Custom Dashboards tool to build any dashboard with any data.   No coding is required!  As a New Relic Pro customer, you click and pick, drag and drop, or instant copy an existing New Relic graph and create a Custom Dashboard.   For more on the New Relic App Speed Index and their Custom Dashboards, see New Relic’s blog
