We’ve been excited about releasing a Python agent for a long time. (Ever since Graham joined New Relic, in fact). Not only does this capability round out our offering, which also includes support for Ruby, PHP, Java, and .NET; but it also meets an overwhelming demand for application monitoring on Python and associated platforms like Django (as evidenced by the huge response we got during our private beta). We’re pleased today to announce the public beta version of the Python agent. That means that you can now try the New Relic Python agent for yourself!
Graham says “Today’s announcement represents a great deal of hard work not only by the New Relic team but also by members of the Python community who continue to help us craft a superb tool for monitoring Python apps. I look forward to sharing New Relic’s Python monitoring features with the Django community at Djangocon 2011 this week.”
Getting started with the Beta Agent
We’d like to encourage you to install the New Relic Python agent and see what it can do for you. If you sign up at newrelic.com/djangocon, we’re offering 30 days of free New Relic Pro (our premium subscription) free of charge. After signup, you find a link to the product and detailed instructions on how to enable the agent. Good luck and happy monitoring!
