Hello! Welcome and thanks for checking out this week’s
Post of the Week!
We had an amazing week here in our Online Technical Community. Seems like everyone was willing to give a helping hand in almost every category! I have posted a few of my favorites below—enjoy!
@LAMBERT really nailed this Synthetics post about an auto re-enablement feature:
We have issues when users are not re-enabling monitors post change windows. Could I log a feature request that allows us to specify a length of time we want to disable a monitor for.
So when you go into the Synthetics home screen, and the Cog that’s used to disable monitors, could there be an extra item there to allow the user “Disable This Monitor for X amount of minutes” after which time the monitor is then automatically enabled.
This I think would be extremely beneficial to all.
@chester_beckett jumps in and shared an awesome post on MS SQL and Installing on Clusters:
Installing on Clusters
Ensure the user the New Relic SQL Agent is using a domain Service user, example: Domain\SQLSVC-User.
Amended the Connection String so that it connects to the Cluster and not the local server:
“_comment” : “This is an example of how you would monitor an on-premises SQL instance, remove this section if you are not using SQL Server or duplicate this section if you have multiple servers.”,
“type” : “sqlserver”, …
And our trust Hero, Stefan, saves a headache or two by being our friendly neighborhood expert, as always:
SELECT average(c), (average(a) + average(b)) FROM Transaction SINCE 2 days ago
You can add TIMESERIES on the end to get a chart over time.
SELECT filter(duration, WHERE name='c') AS 'Duration c',
(filter(duration, WHERE name='a') + filter(duration, WHERE name='b')) AS 'Duration a+b'
FROM Transaction SINCE 2 days ago TIMESERIES 15 minutes
With the queries above, you cannot break out by transaction name, you would require something like:
SELECT average(duration) FROM Transaction WHER…
I have several transactions that are configured to trace when they take longer than 0.1 seconds. In my Transactions dashboard many transactions are taking longer than this but have no traces recorded. Why?
@zkay, one of New Relic’s uber talented engineers shares something new and exciting with us: “Error Analytics Page: Release Notes”:
Hello! I’m an engineer working on our APM UI. We’ve made some recent changes to the Error Analytics page, which you can read about in more detail
APM’s Error analytics page provides two different data views with different data retention periods. Both views include error traces. Below are release notes where you can see what changes we made. These improvements and fixes only apply to the error events view, not the error metrics view.
Added the Error rate chart at the top of t…
Make sure you give it a read!
