New Relic NRQL Lessons Nerdpack

The NRQL Lessons Nerdpack


Learning new things can be daunting, and learning to use new things that can be the key to unlocking the power of a platform like New Relic can add importance to this. NRQL is one of the key tools in New Relic to create incredible dashboards and alerts and truly control your data.

As such we wanted to help any New Relic user to quickly up-skill on NRQL and learn some of the tips and tricks that perhaps you might have only learned from a New Relic technical member showcasing.

We have devised 4 levels of learning to help take anyone who is trying to learn and understand how to do interesting and powerful things with NRQL. It takes you from learning the ropes where you make your first query and start to assemble the basics of a good query, to an absolutely NRQL ninja using some of the most powerful functionalities.

We hope that we could potentially even add a certification to this app at some point in the future so keep an eye for that.

Installation / Setup -

This application will be available via the New Relic App Catalog allowing you to quickly select it and choose “Manage Access” and define which accounts that you have Nerdpack Manager role on, can access this appliication. So via the App Catalog is the easiest and quickest route to success.

However we have of course made this tool Open Source. So you can quickly and easily make customisations and push a custom version is you desire.

git clone
cd nr1-learn-nrql
npm install
nr1 nerdpack:uuid -gf
nr1 nerdpack:publish
nr1 nerdpack:subscribe  -C STABLE

This will subscribe the application to the account you have as your default profile. You can check this using nr1 profiles:default. If you are not ready to deploy it to your account or want to test out changes you’ve made locally you can simple

git clone
cd nr1-learn-nrql
npm install
** Make Any Desired Changes **
