Getting started with Dashboards & NRQL

Getting started with Dashboards & NRQL

Learn to use the Data Explorer and Query Builder Basic Mode to create charts and dashboards without any knowledge of NRQL. Progress to working directly with NRQL to create a wider range of charts and visualizations.

About this workshop

New Relic One offers a consistent, powerful, and flexible query language NRQL which enables you to query and analyze all of your collected data, and build custom charts and visualizations.  These charts can be combined to create powerful dashboards to help you correlate and understand your systems, troubleshoot more efficiently, or correlate performance metrics with business KPIs.

Using tools like the Data Explorer or Query Builder Basic Mode, you can quickly and easily create charts and dashboards without any knowledge of NRQL.  Working directly with NRQL you can go further and create a wider range of charts and visualizations to suit your requirements.  

In this hands-on session, you’ll get to explore the data being collected, start building custom charts with the Data Explorer, and learn about the structure and capabilities of NRQL.  Using a sandbox account you’ll get familiar with NRQL syntax, work with the Query Builder to build your own queries and charts, and create data rich dashboards.  You’ll also learn about some of the powerful features of dashboards which enable you to link, filter, and share them for more powerful troubleshooting and data correlation.
