New Relic Micrometer registry

A Micrometer metrics registry for sending dimensional metrics to New Relic using the New Relic Java Telemetry SDK.

This registry should be able to be used both within a Spring Boot application, or any application that uses micrometer for recording metrics.

Note: the micrometer project currently includes a NewRelicMeterRegistry that writes metrics to NewRelic as custom events. This implementation is intended to supersede that, as dimensional metrics are a better fit for micrometer metrics than custom events.

Javadoc for this project can be found here: Javadocs


  1. via gradle:

    implementation 'com.newrelic.telemetry:micrometer-registry-new-relic:0.8.0'

    Note: you might need to also include a dependency on micrometer-core itself, for example:

    implementation 'io.micrometer:micrometer-core:1.6.4'

  2. via maven:

  1. The registry class is com.newrelic.telemetry.micrometer.NewRelicRegistry. It will need to be built via a com.newrelic.telemetry.micrometer.NewRelicRegistryConfig implementation. An example of how you might do that is in the wiki: Spring-Config-Example

In order to send metrics to New Relic, you will also need an Insert API Key. Please see New Relic Api Keys for more information.

And, that's it!

Find and use your data

For an in-depth breakdown of how Micrometer metrics are converted to New Relic dimensional metrics please read the Micrometer exporter specification.

Once telemetry data is received from the Micrometer registry, New Relic automatically detects the telemetry data as Micrometer metrics and creates a default summary page using those metrics. The service summary includes charts for response time, throughput, and error rate, as well as charts showing JVM metrics. You can also group and filter the charts by the dimensions available on the metrics.

Additionally, if you wish to create your own charts based on other Micrometer metrics then you can use the Metrics explorer and Query builder to build your own dashboard.

The project uses gradle 5 for building, and the gradle wrapper is provided.

To compile, run the tests and build the jar:

$ ./gradlew build
