New Relic Releases Latest Platform to Deliver New Visualizations for Better Observability

New Relic, Inc., a leader in Observability, is introducing New Relic Explorer, a reimagined full-stack observability experience that delivers innovative new visualizations and capabilities.

With zero configuration required, New Relic Explorer brings together an organization’s telemetry data from across applications and infrastructure to provide an essential live view of an entire software system’s health and performance.

With this new single source of truth, engineers can quickly discover emerging performance issues and swiftly take action to get systems back to full health before customers or employees are impacted, according to the vendor.

All existing New Relic customers will be automatically upgraded to this new and powerful experience in the coming weeks.

“IT environments have become increasingly complex and engineering teams use a myriad of tools to see the performance of their entire tech stack, but there’s no way to see everything in one place and quickly take action. This leads to fragmented visibility, cumbersome and inefficient workflows, and out-of-control costs,” said Bill Staples, president and chief product officer, New Relic. “With this launch, New Relic has delivered true Full-Stack Observability so engineers can finally get their arms around all of their telemetry data to quickly understand what’s happening and resolve issues faster before they become problems.”

New Relic Explorer enables engineers to uncover blind spots and surface details needed to support a faster, deeper understanding of large distributed software systems.

New Relic Explorer includes New Relic Lookout and New Relic Navigator. New Relic Lookout provides an estate-wide, real-time view of any changes in telemetry data, including third party and open source data, automatically drawing attention to where it’s needed most.

This is delivered through an intuitive user experience visualization with no configuration or reliance on static, pre-configured alert thresholds required.

Zoom in capabilities allow teams to pinpoint correlations, abnormal history and traces immediately. This gives engineering teams the ability to leverage New Relic’s Profiles to quickly uncover blind spots and unknown relationships, and to understand all changes so that issues can be resolved well before they impact the end customer or employee.

New Relic Navigator allows customers to explore all entities at a glance in a highly intuitive visualization. The health of each application, service, container, function and host is displayed in red, yellow or green based on alert conditions, with the ability to group and filter based on attributes for a curated view of all the entities that a service (or set of services) encompasses. These traffic light colors display health so users can quickly and easily investigate large numbers of entities while simplifying cross-team collaboration.

In addition, relationships between specific applications, hosts, containers or integrations are shown in one view, making it quick and easy to understand which upstream or downstream services are related to an issue. This enables engineers to gain a broader view of the overall health of their systems and troubleshoot cascading failures faster.
