The most important feature for me in NewRelic is Java Profiling.. Anything that makes finding the bottlenecks in our apps is a boon!

Deployment History and SQL Performance!

Gordon Kennedy Sep 07 2011

The Real User Monitoring looks like an excellent feature.

Mario Awad Sep 07 2011

Scalability Analysis is the most important to me. Answering the scalability question is hard and having a tool to test this out is awesome. Cheers.

The fact you are acting off real world data is invaluable and addictive. You have an amazing insight into how actual customers are using and experiencing your product.

I want to better analyse my sites and my customer sites.

Performance and analytics.

The transaction tracing feature is definitely my fave. Being able to break down and analyze the components used to load a particular page and how long those components took to execute really helps optimize the right parts of my code to give my users the greatest bang for their buck (i.e., my dev time).

Uptime is crucial so for me it would be Availability Monitoring!

Been using the free version for a while, but got a sampling of the paid version to begin with. The performance anayltics is awesome. Really helps track down bottlenecks in the applications. Can drill down quite far to see which scripts and even db queries are slowest.

I Like the Support!

I love the weekly performance reports they send to my inbox – that has a quick synopsis of my app’s performance for the week (both in a quick index – they call Appdex – so I can know what my uptime and performance was like out of 100% – e.g 0.995) and also the summary recent deployments.

Gives me a nice overview (without having to login) about the general health and activity around my app. Pretty cool.

Web Transaction Tracing is by far the most important tool when you have a huge stack and need to know what broke!

Bill Dolbier Sep 08 2011

The Performance Analytics feature looks great to me. Seems easy to use and something I’d love to use going forward.

Michal Cichra Sep 08 2011

I really appreciate Availability Monitoring. It saved my live few times – i could fix everything before client noticed.

Petra Sep 08 2011

Proactive Notifications are almost like from Minority Report – predicting problems before they happen

dicarsio Sep 08 2011

SQL performance analysis is really a great help.

Josh Bartolomucci Sep 08 2011

I really like the “Real User Monitoring”

Monie Sep 08 2011

RDL Reyes Sep 09 2011

Real User Monitoring. Many times my clients has insisted on sitting with the user and see how things are going. This feature is Big Brother!

Juarez P. A. Filho Sep 09 2011

Real User Monitoring for sure! =D

Heesang Sep 09 2011

I’d love to use SQL performance monitoring most.

Deepak M Sep 11 2011
