Monitoring Metrics that Matter: Introducing Newvem for New Relic

Monitoring Metrics that Matter: Introducing Newvem for New Relic

As a developer, you understand just how complex your application stack can be. Depending on its environment, there can be hundreds of critical components that together make up your app, and each piece is vital to its performance and reliability. To monitor each component, you might use multiple, non-integrated tools to gain visibility into your stack. And that makes troubleshooting app performance issues a challenging endeavor.

Our partner New Relic has always strived to make the lives of its customers easier with its SaaS-based APM tool. Now they’ve made a good thing even better with the release of the New Relic Plugin Central– a seamless new way to monitor the performance of any technology through the intuitive and easy-to-use New Relic interface. The New Relic platform opened the doors for us to create the first AWS Cost & Usage Analytics Plugin for application developers.

With the New Relic Platform, you’ll be able to get in-depth, real time insight into the performance of each component of your application stack – from cloud services, to the database, caching, networking, queuing and more. And best of all? You’ll be able to do it from a single pane of glass to monitor all the metrics you care about.  Get started by activating the plugin here.

We’re excited to be part of this new initiative with our AWS Cost & Usage Analytics Plugin. The Newvem plugin for New Relic visualizes the costs and assets under your app’s hood providing both top level and granular visibility to the costs, usage and risks of the AWS infrastructure under your applications.

What can New Relic users expect from the Newvem plugin?

Clear visibility to app costs and usage.  Newvem actively tracks your AWS infrastructure costs and asset usage over daily, weekly, and monthly periods and presents them, in a simple view, directly in your New Relic console.


Improve your app’s costs.  Newvem offers clear visibility into your app’s cost with  daily, weekly, and monthly views, both from a granular (AWS resources ) and top level (your app’s EC2 usage) angle.  With detailed cost and asset trend reports, you can make better usage modeling and forecasting decisions on hard app usage data.

Address risk.  Newvem constantly tracks your app’s exposure to major risks such as security and availability so you can ensure a secure and compliant application in line with your SLA and customer expectations.

“Our application needs to be highly available to our customers. Newvem’s cost and usage visibility helps us to ensure that we’ve provisioned the optimal AWS resources to support customer expectations and at the right price point.”

– Jarrett Jordaan, Software Engineer, Knowledge Tree
