Hi, i have a very general question.
Sometimes there is a performance issue with one of our web sites. Or something else. Is there some indication of the limitations of New Relic. I get questions from management regarding this question. The reason is to pinpoint where the problem lies: web application, network, databases, databaseserver, etc.
I will give some random examples:
- a query is slow because a wrong execution path (wrong index chosen)
- there is a performance problem because of a routing problem between webserver and databaseserver: ping pong between 3 hosting locations
- there are a lot of network components not monitored by new relic like load balancers, firewalls, storage, storage, switches that could cause performance issue
- an order is not received in an ERP system that was send by a website through an Enterprise Server Bus
I was wondering if people get the same questions regarding: what can we see with New relic and what not. And it what detail. And how they handle such questions.
