New Relic's Node.js monitoring quickstart provides essential tools to monitor Node.js including multiple high-value alerts and informative dashboards to help developers visualize essential metrics and act on potential issues quickly.

What's included?

Node.js quickstart contains 1 dashboard. These interactive visualizations let you easily explore your data, understand context, and resolve problems faster.
Node.js observability quickstart contains 4 alerts. These alerts detect changes in key performance metrics. Integrate these alerts with your favorite tools (like Slack, PagerDuty, etc.) and New Relic will let you know when something needs your attention.
Memory Usage
This alert is triggered when the Memory usage exceeds 90% for 5 minutes.
Apdex Score
This alert is triggered when the Apdex score is below 0.5 for 5 minutes.
Web Transaction Errors
This alert is triggered when the web transactions fail exceeds 10% for 5 minutes.
CPU Utilization
This alert is triggered when the CPU utilization exceeds 90% for 5 minutes.
Node.js observability quickstart contains 1 documentation reference. This is how you'll get your data into New Relic.

The comprehensive Node.js monitoring system

Node.js is an open-source platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime used to develop fast and scalable applications quickly with an event-driven, non-blocking input/output architecture.

However, these attributes can be inconvenient because verifying the correctness of an application with asynchronous nested callbacks is complex. So, it’s important to watch executing Node.js systems closely. Monitoring your Node.js applications ensures optimal performance, allows the maximization of system availability, and ensures that a system’s health is well maintained.

What should you look for in a Node.js dashboard?

A reliable Node.js network monitor must provide enough information to identify the problem sources. Some crucial information includes process ID, log management, request rate, application availability, resource usage, uptime, downtime, system health, error rates and handling, number of connections, load average, and latency.

What’s included in the Node.js quickstart?

Install this quickstart to install preconfigured observability solutions:
