OverOps and New Relic have a synergy – New Relic tells you about your app’s performance and OverOps shows you why and how errors occur. With that synergy in mind, we’ve built a plugin for New Relic. This page describes the plugin and tells you how to add or remove it from your New Relic account.
The OverOps plugin shows you errors happening within your environment in your New Relic account. There are four tables that list different kinds of errors: Top Exceptions, New Exceptions, Log Errors, and Recent Events. Because of New Relic’s policy on links, these are not clickable tables, but OverOps sends real time information to New Relic to make sure they are current.
In the settings for the plugin, you can edit the alerting conditions for the plugin. Depending on your settings, you can control whether New Relic will label your situation as Caution or Critical.
Plugin settings in New Relic
When OverOps and New Relic are installed on the same server, the plugin for OverOps will automatically install within New Relic. We recommend that you put the OverOps agent last in your list of JVM arguments.
To remove the OverOps plugin, you have to have admin access to your New Relic account. With admin access, clicking on the settings for the plugin will show you a “Remove” link to delete it. If you’ve previously removed the plugin and would like to reinstall it, you can search for it in the New Relic Plugin Central and install it from there.
You can also turn the New Relic plugin on and off from within your OverOps dashboard. To do so, go into your advanced settings, then check or uncheck the "Report OverOps statistics to New Relic account" box. Note: this box only is shown if you have admin access to your OverOps dashboard.
