New Relic is a great product/service that is extremely powerful and easy to use. They even have iOS/Android apps to stay up-to-date on server stats while away from your desk.
I love how easy it was to get the New Relic agent installed on my Digital Ocean server. Within minutes it was piping in data to their dashboard.
Making sense of the mountain of data is challenging. It takes time and effort to figure out what all the data means and how it can be useful to your organization. It is well worth the effort though.

Its a very promising product, but the recent issues and the frequency of those issues have ruined the overall experience. There are more false alerts than the actual alerts and the team is looking for alternate options now.
We can have a centralized monitoring of all the apps and hosts. Ability to develop custom alerts using NRQL. Helps to identify potential bottlenecks and peaks in the performance.
Frequent issues/ glitches and downtimes in NewRelic causing false alarms while monitoring. Lack of default dashboard/UI to see the overall status for a group of apps/ team. No feature to turn off a alert policy from the UI, we have to start and stop individual alerts.

I would rate my experience with New Relic as very good. It's easy to setup and use with the exception of a little learning curve about all the corners where information is stored. I highly recommend New Relic.
The feature I enjoy the most about new relic is their individualize transaction monitoring from ruby threads to JVM processes. The Transaction/full system monitoring new relic offers can make any developer feel like a super hero with debugging/speeding up queries and processes or anything at all.
To me the UI can sometimes be a bit complicated where you can find information. The New Relic UI is mostly a single page application with multiple layers you have to click into. This is nice for some but sharing links is often not possible because of where you have to click to get to the same information.

We like and use New Relic, but it is no longer our only monitoring solution, as we need to use several tools to hit all of the needs that it once hit on its own.
New Relic provides great insight into what our applications are doing in real time, from traffic through to code timings.
New Relic's business model has gotten in the way of their product. Several features we used daily were sunset and their replacements were hidden behind new billing models. In the time since we have started using New Relic we have paid no less, but lost several features.

New Relic is a SaaS-based solution that uses data to help businesses build faster, better, more high-performing software.

As a SaaS, New Relic captures and stores customer’s data using its cloud storage service. Data is then presented in New Relics easy to use user interface. Data is presented in a meaningful way for customers to easily digest and diagnose performance issues.

New Relic’s mobile app monitoring solution brings any problems your app is facing to the forefront, allowing you to spend fewer hours troubleshooting each week. Instead, you can spend more time focusing your attention on developing the types of new features that your growing user base will love.
User Interaction Traces in particular is a feature that allows you to track individual user interactions in your app (all screen loads for example) by providing code-level data traces. You get visual timelines for any activity in your app giving you insight into how memory, database and CPU are being used. Interaction traces also provide insight into how your data is optimized across the different threads in your app - main and background threads, so you can dive into this code and make sure there are no inefficiencies in your app.
Stop guessing what’s causing your application performance issues, and start finding out for sure. Using the New Relic APM transaction trace feature, you can identify the root cause of production performance problems. See traces sorted by response times, and capture invocation patterns related to each invocation.
Use New Relic APM to define Key Transactions to monitor, manage and track the most important business transactions (i.e. shopping cart) independent of overall application. With Key Transactions users set transaction level alerting thresholds and access transaction specific dashboards, topology maps, and SLA reports.
The New Relic Platform provides insight into even the most unique application stacks by allowing you to install and build plugins specific to your environment. Plugins are available for technologies such as databases, caching layers, networks, messaging solutions and much more.
