Relic Solution: Using Inventory in Infrastructure



With so many variables across your infrastructure, it’s easy to miss an update somewhere or understand why one host is behaving differently than another. Now you can solve those problems. New Relic Infrastructure provides you full-stack monitoring, and we’ve given you an easy way to search your entire infrastructure from top to bottom: Inventory.

How does Inventory help you better manage your Infrastructure? Here are a few examples:

  • Determine which hosts have OpenSSL installed to ensure that it’s everywhere it needs to be

  • List all hosts that have a particular version of a Linux distribution that needs to be updated

  • Create an audit list your team can use to quickly spot variances across your hosts

There are a few ways to drill into and understand Inventory:

  • Apply a Filter Set. You can add a filter for any Infrastructure Attribute, allowing you to focus in on just the hosts you need to see. For help using Filter Sets, see our Level Up post.

  • Add a Search term. Use the search box at the top of the Inventory list to find things like version numbers or app names. Search terms can be used on their own, or you can apply a search term to the results of a filter set, further narrowing your results. Although you can not save a search result, you can copy the URL of the results page and share that with colleagues who may also need to see this particular view.

  • View Inventory Item details. Once you’ve got the list of hosts you want, you can drill down into the details. Inventory item details provide host and system information for each host it resides on according to the New Relic inventory item name. Click on the arrow to left of any host name to see more details.
