New Relic adds app performance service for Heroku Java users

Developers can monitor application and transaction performance using the service

New Relic is taking its Web application performance service to Java apps running on Heroku's platform.

Customers using Heroku's platform-as-a-service to run Ruby apps can already use New Relic's service to monitor real-time performance data about transactions, applications and websites.

With Heroku's announcement last week that it is now also supporting applications built in Java, New Relic is making its service available to Heroku customers running Java apps.

Customers can sign up for the New Relic service through Heroku's add-on catalog. New Relic has done some integration work so that developers see New Relic performance data from within their Heroku console.

Users can see, for example, that an application is running slowly in one region, that a particular page of an application is lagging or that a set of transactions tends to regularly run slower than average, said Bill Lapcevic, vice president of business development for New Relic. Users can then view a full-stack trace to look for bottlenecks.

Heroku Java developers can start using New Relic for free but an upgraded version adds features like unlimited data retention and proactive alerts. That version costs $0.06 per Dyno hour, which is a metric unique to Heroku based on the processes a user is running on the platform service.

Around 3,000 customers are already using New Relic actively on Heroku at any time, Lapcevic said.

New Relic also offers its service on other platforms for developers running apps based on Java, Ruby, PHP, .Net or Python. Combined, there are more than 12,000 accounts actively using the product, he said.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
