Under the general trend of cloud-native, more and more developers have adopted container and serverless technologies when creating and deploying applications. New Relic is always paying attention to the evolution of cloud-native technology and the new challenges in the field of observability.

  • Instance-Level Monitoring: Serverless black-boxes the concept of instances, but developers need to see the impact of events, such as cold starts caused by instance changes on business performance.
  • Rich Indicators: Some business key indicators, such as CPU, memory, network, and other cloud services, have not been provided yet, and the business side collects time and effort by themselves.
  • It uses metrics, logs, link tracking, and correlation to solve difficult distributed application problems.

Solutions to integrate with NewRelic

Before you begin

  1. Register NewRelic and get your licence key (You can get your licence key when you create application)
  2. Register FunctionCompute .

Step 1: Prepare the environment

An easy and simple way to install Funcraft is to download the executable binary files.

  1. Run fun --version to check whether the installation is successful.
  2. You need to configure funcraft with your own aliyun access key id and access key secret. Follow the steps in Configure Funcraft .Run fun config to configure Funcraft. Then configure Account ID, Access Key ID, Access Key Secret, and Default region name as prompted.
$ fun config
Aliyun Account ID 1234xxx
Aliyun Access Key ID xxxx
Aliyun Access Key Secret xxxx
Default region name cn-xxxx
The timeout in seconds for each SDK client invoking 300
The maximum number of retries for each SDK client 5
Allow to anonynously report usage statistics to improve the tool over time? (Y/n)

Step 2: Deploy application

  1. Run the following command to clone the sample project to your local machine.
git clone https://github.com/awesome-fc/fc-newrelic-demo.git
cd fc-newrelic-demo
NEW_RELIC_LICENSE_KEY: your-license-key
make deploy
➜  newrelic make deploy
