To integrate GitHub and New Relic with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating GitHub and New Relic and how that can support your monitoring system.
GitHub is a service for hosting code and doing version control for code. The foundations of GitHub is "Git" - which is an open source version control system.
Git allows multiple coders to contribute to one project, while remembering which is the most up-to-date version. Git also remembers who contributed and what they contributed to the project. All modifications and revisions are stored in a central repository, and contributions are made through a pull request.
Pull requests can be made by anybody, but they must be approved by the repository admin. In some projects, pull requests can be contributed without approval. However, most projects have some quality assurance processes.
When doing application performance monitoring for a project built in GitHub, you’ll want to export data about your GitHub setup into your regular monitoring dashboards. You want to monitor when changes happen, and the effect they have on your system.
For example, if you make a change to your code, and suddenly the latency of requests to your server increases - you’ll want to know exactly which pull request caused that change. If you didn’t know that there were any changes in your code, then you wouldn’t be able to correlate the change in your code with the changes in how your system is behaving. This will slow down your debugging process.
With MetricFire, you can get all of your monitoring dashboards automatically annotated with the changes you’ve made to your code in GitHub. If there are any changes in behavior, a small note will be present in the graph to tell you what’s happening in your environment.
This enables you to automatically monitor the correlation between GitHub changes and how your system is functioning.
New Relic is a monitoring tool that can deliver useful insights about both past and real-time reliability and performance of applications. When you use this service to make sure your web or mobile app is working properly, you’ll get access to the information you need to improve app performance. Not only is New Relic compatible with all programming languages and easy to use to improve your app from anywhere, but it’s also simple to install. In fact, it takes only minutes to get it up and running so you can start getting insights today.
Some examples of the information you’ll get from New Relic include page load times, errors, browser usage, flow of web transactions, and more. When you view your dashboard, you’ll be able to see your app’s performance from the point of view of users, making it easy to detect and fix any issues right away. So if you want transparency into how your app is performing — either in real-time or historically — New Relic can help.
When you implement performance monitoring with New Relic, you can import all your data to a single dashboard of observability with one UI to make it easier to keep track of. Once you start monitoring performance with this tool, it can alert you to potential issues before they develop into major problems that users will notice. These features make monitoring and troubleshooting your app seamless for your team.
Best of all, New Relic integrates with popular tools like MetricFire. When you use these two tools together, you get constant monitoring of your app as MetricFire pulls your metrics for easy viewing on a custom dashboard, complete with alerts. This way, you get as much functionality as you need to ensure your app runs smoothly.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
