New Relic Metrics in Your Load Tests

Posted by Grant Engle on Jun 2, 2016

Tl;dr — We just updated our New Relic integration. You’ll be able to find more performance bottlenecks than ever before.

  • In the application code or database transactions: Find where you can optimize your web performance
  • More metrics means you’ll make better decisions
  • You’ll see your New Relic metrics in our graphical interface during live load tests
  • If you need help getting started with the New Relic integration, this Support article will help you!

Ever since we rolled out our initial integration with New Relic — one of the giants of Application Performance Monitoring (APM) — we’ve received a ton of feedback from our users that’s helped us improve the integration.

Now, Load Impact is pulling even more data from that integration, as users can now configure and view any server-side or database metrics collected by New Relic in their live load tests.

“This integration opens up a huge opportunity for engineers to dive deeper into their performance data and pinpoint issues,” said Load Impact CTO Robin Gustafsson. “Our goal is to provide as much granular, actionable data as possible, and that’s what we’ve done with this New Relic integration.”

New Relic became one of the top APM softwares in the world because of their precise metrics that help developers optimize web performance through monitoring every aspect of their server, app and database. With this integration, Load Impact is bringing that data into continuous performance and load testing.

Find Your Performance Bottlenecks

Let’s say you just created a new API endpoint.

Because you’re a smart developer who continuously tests for load and performance bottlenecks in the development stage, you feel good about the API’s performance, but now you want to look as deep as possible to see what you can optimize before the next release.

With Load Impact’s updated New Relic integration, you can identify specific load times for application, server and database transactions. That will guide you in the right direction to improve your product’s performance, create a memorable user experience and ultimately generate and retain more revenue. (Isn’t that what we’re all trying to do here, anyway?)

If you have any questions regarding our New Relic integration — or anything else — reach out to Support, and we’ll swiftly help you out. Happy testing!
