New Relic Delivers Distributed Tracing


Customers such as leverage distributed tracing to quickly
find and resolve issues across modern, complex architectures

Relic, Inc
. (NYSE:NEWR), provider of real-time insights for
software-driven businesses, today announced the general availability of
New Relic distributed tracing. Customers, such as and others,
are now leveraging New Relic distributed tracing to better understand
the performance of applications running in modern, complex architectures.

As more and more companies increasingly adopt distributed application
architectures, the ability to track the performance of a single request
across all the services and microservices involved becomes essential.
New Relic's distributed tracing provides DevOps teams with the ability
to trace the path of a single request to understand a complex system,
discover what is causing latencies for that request, find where an error
originated, and identify opportunities to optimize code to improve
customer experience.

Key Features of New Relic's Distributed Tracing

Distributed tracing is an important addition to the New Relic platform,
designed to give software teams an easy way to manage the performance of
modern environments.

  • Automatic instrumentation to get up and running quickly –
    features built-in trace instrumentation for hundreds of frameworks and
    libraries out-of-the-box, so customers see immediate value, and avoid
    the toil of having to manually instrument their code.
  • Depth of detail across modern and traditional systems - the
    combination of distributed tracing, in conjunction with New Relic's
    existing tracing functionality, is purpose-built for organizations
    that are in the process of transitioning to microservices
    environments. New Relic offers both tracing solutions in one powerful
    platform that delivers visibility into infrastructure, application,
    and customer experience.
  • Powerful analytics to quickly find root causes – DevOps teams
    can easily add custom attributes to traces so they can narrow problems
    down to individual customers, accounts, or any other dimension of
    their business using advanced filtering. They can also create
    dashboards using trace information filtered to specific attributes.
  • Delivers immediate value – New Relic's SaaS platform delivers
    value as soon as the agent is deployed. There is no infrastructure to
    provision, secure, or run. DevOps teams can focus on delivering
    software for their customers, not instrumenting and building their
    monitoring solution.

"With our flexible, out-of-the-box instrumentation and deep performance
data, New Relic's distributed tracing empowers fast-moving DevOps teams
to cut through the complexity of modern architectures," said Nadya Duke
Boone, vice president of product management, New Relic. "Our customers
don't have to choose between a solution with automatic or manual
instrumentation; New Relic delivers both, integrated with all the other
tools and data in the New Relic platform essential for monitoring modern
software environments."

"We've found New Relic's distributed tracing to be super-easy to
integrate with," said Andrew Potter, senior developer at, a
Cox Automotive brand. "With New Relic, we simply updated our agent, and
all of the sudden we had distributed tracing. It was a great experience."
