.NET agent adds support for Error analytics and error events

Today we are thrilled to announce that New Relic APM customers running .NET applications now have access to error analytics, our powerful analysis tool for identifying and resolving errors in applications. The data driving error analytics is also available in New Relic Insights for use in dashboards and Alerts.

New Relic APM provides a powerful and flexible approach to identifying and resolving errors. We have thousands of customers using our error capabilities every day. When we launched error analytics at FutureStack15, we delivered an intuitive and usable web interface for customers to analyze and solve application issues. It was designed to let users segment and pivot APM error data across a range of dimensions, including custom business attributes like company, frequency, error type, or any other attribute. Critically, all of that error data was made available for eight days in Insights at no cost, for use in dashboards and Alerts.

In September, we made the usability of the error-analytics experience even better by including the overall health of your app, including a tooltip with the total error count for any point on the graph. We improved the usability by tweaking the page arrangement to boost scannability. Finally, we changed the layout to make it clearer how the total number of errors for the application breaks down by different values as you work with the table. While we were at it, we made some quality improvements, too!

Error analytics had previously been available for Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, Node.js, and Go. Now it is available for all of our language agents, including .NET. See our documentation pages for details about how the error analytics feature works and the configuration options for it in the .NET agent.
Please keep the feedback coming. We are always working to improve our errors experience so that we can build better analytical experiences into our product line.

(Note: Error analytics requires the version of the .NET agent, released on March 2, 2017.)

We recently announced a wide set of features as part of our Winter 2017 launch. Find out more at newrelic.com/products/platform-updates.
