We love seeing customer posts about using New Relic RPM. Understanding how our customers use New Relic day to day not only helps focus our R&D efforts, but is also valuable for other New Relic users because it gives them a chance to see how application management is being implemented among their peers. So from time to time, as we see different posts around the web, we’ll draw attention to them so we can all learn a little more about application monitoring and management best practices.
A couple of weeks ago, the good folks over at Teambox, a provider of SaaS-based project management software, posted about using New Relic RPM to help out with a recent performance issue. Since the user experience is heavily customized, the Teambox app is database-intensive and a lot of content is constantly being generated by users in a lot of different ways. New Relic helped Teambox get to the root of some database issues and at the end of the day, they were able optimize the database and improve page response time by 45%. Wow–keep up the good work guys!
