How New Relic works
New Relic Insights is New Relic’s analytics engine, which collects data via code installed in your application. A
New Relic agent is a piece of software that you install on a host or in an application that sends performance data to New Relic. New Relic uses different agents for different products and coding languages. Installation procedures vary by platform. Make sure that you’ve done your research and are familiar with your code environment to ensure proper installation.
Get more out of New Relic with Segment
Segment removes the need to install a
New Relic agent entirely. Instead, Segment’s own library is able to capture all of the same information that the
agent would have collected, and will intelligently route it directly to your New Relic Insights account. Thus, if you have Segment, you can start sending data to New Relic with minimal setup effort almost immediately, and with no compromises in data fidelity.
