To integrate New Relic and webhooks with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating New Relic and webhooks and how that can support your monitoring system.
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.
Webhooks are user-defined HTTP callbacks triggered by an event, such as pushing code to a repository or posting a comment to a blog. They allow you to send data from one application to another whenever a specific event occurs. When an event is triggered, the source site makes an HTTP request to the URL configured for the webhook.
Webhooks are one of only a few methods available to allow web applications to exchange information with each other. At first, webhooks might seem like an API, but they are slightly different. Webhooks don't need to give a request to get a response, while APIs need to send a request to get a response. Webhooks let you receive, while APIs require you to retrieve. Think of it like API calls and polling need to knock on the door (requesting) to give that information to someone. Webhooks just simply throw that information at the door as there is no need to request permission.
There are many reasons to use webhooks. You could use a webhook to connect a payment gateway with your email marketing software to notify a customer by email if a payment bounces. You might use a webhook to send event data to external databases or data warehouses like Amazon's Redshift for further analysis. Or you could use webhooks to sync customer data between applications, such as when a user changes their email address. By using a webhook, you can ensure that the change is reflected in your CRM as well.
With MetricFire, you can use WebHooks in two different ways. First, they are useful for integrating metric data from various platforms and services, including CircleCi, Pingdom, Sentry, and more. Second, you can create WebHooks from within MetricFire to send notifications to applications and services that accept WebHooks.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of 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, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. 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.
