New Relic Package for Laravel Apps
Published on by Paul Redmond
The Laravel New Relic package enhances New Relic performance monitoring for Laravel apps. While New Relic works with Laravel applications out of the box, this package reports optimized transactions for Laravel.
Out of the box, this package can tune transactions for:
- HTTP transactions are handled with a global middleware on each request
CLI requests are filtered out for noise (so long-running calls like
php artisan horizonwon't skew your stats).
- Queued jobs record a transaction automatically as each one starts and ends.
- Artisan commands are recorded as individual transactions.
- Scheduled tasks are monitored as each one is executed.
Additionally, this package can notify New Relic of code deployments (which can help isolate performance issues and errors) and simulate transactions in environments where the package cannot detect the New Relic PHP module.
php artisan new-relic:deploy
The configuration file has more details on how to configure this package, ignore commands, and even ignore route patterns. It comes with sensible yet customizable defaults.
