New Relic and Nancy
At DrDoctor we’ve been using Nancy as our web framework for quite sometime now. We’ve found it to have many advantages over ASP.Net MVC (we still have one legacy ASP.Net MVC site running) as well as excellent community support.
Recently we started using New Relic to monitor the performance of our web applications. However I was a bit disappointed when I was first looking at the data it collected and saw this
New Relic grouped up all the different routes under the title of “NancyHttpRequestHandler”, I compared this to the list of Transactions that New Relic had picked up from our ASP.Net MVC application and there was a nice list of all the different routes that had been visited.
After a very quick Google search I came across the Nancy and New Relic page on the Nancy wiki and after following the instructions and redeploying our website New Relic started to list all the different Nancy routes
New Relic will also pick up any exceptions that are thrown and show these in the Errors section.
We’ve had New Relic capturing data performance data for about a month now and have already used it to make significant improvements to some of the key parts of our web apps.
