Load Impact Integration with New Relic Gives Users Full View of App Performance

Stockholm — Nov. 11, 2015 — Load Impact is proud to announce its integration with the application monitoring and data analytics giant New Relic.

Load Impact users can now monitor New Relic Server and Application metrics in real time while running a Load Impact load test, giving them a clear picture of their application and infrastructure’s performance under load.

“There’s a big overlap of users between Load Impact and New Relic,” said Robin Gustafsson, Load Impact CTO. “This integration will give them much deeper insights, making it easier to correlate the results they get from their Load Impact tests with the actual performance of their applications.”

Load Impact’s popular graphical interface has always included the ability to overlay server-side metrics in real-time using its Server Metrics Agents. This integration provides the same option but makes it much easier for existing New Relic users.

Several key metrics from New Relic will be collected and available as part of the integration — with more to be added later.


    New Relic Metrics Included in the Initial Release:


  • APDEX

  • CPU usage percent

  • Later on, database, memory and disk metrics, as well as response times for specific application code functions/methods will be added.

    “New Relic is one of the top data analytics companies in the tech sector, but it’s also simply one of the great companies in the world,” said Gustafsson. “Now that developers and testers can monitor their New Relic metrics in Load Impact during a load test, there’s no part of their app’s performance they won’t be able to optimize.”

    The New Relic integration is available to all Load Impact users.
