Introduction to APM Agents

Learn about the New Relic agent, a piece of software you install on a host or in an application that sends performance data to New Relic. New Relic uses different agents for different products and coding languages. New Relic automatically collects data from (or "instruments") many of the most popular web frameworks, hosting environments, and tools.

The following list of Agent Install videos provide information to help you to install many of the commonly used agent languages. Each agent installation differs slightly.
