Node js _newrelic_native_metrics-3_1_2 link missing


Hi , I found that missing…


Hi @farseercarl!

I’m happy to help you troubleshoot this. To start off, I’d like to gather some more information.

I’m curious, did you receive an error related to this when trying to run npm install newrelic --save?
If not, could you please provide some more details about how this came up for you?

Additionally, can you tell me more about your environment?

  • What version of Node are you running?
  • What version the New Relic Node Agent are you running?
  • If you encountered this as an error on installation, are you installing on Windows?




I’m getting the same issue. I’m running npm v6.6.0 on a mac and the error is from installing native-metrics with the following command (with output):

This same error came from running npm install newrelic originally. I can see from following the link listed by @farseercarl that the resource is not found, as shown by the 404 in the output from my npm install command.


Hey Michael,

I made a ticket for your case, so we can take a look at this issue more carefully. Expect to hear from us soon.





Michael and I reviewed his output for $ npm install @newrelic/native-metrics --loglevel=silly
and in the installation errors that came up, we found out that his MacOs environment was missing python v2.7, which is one of the requirements for installing the Node agent.
