How to install Newrelic agent on AEM6.4 Author/Publisher Server

msina

Hi ,

We are trying to  install newrelic java agent in our AEM6.4 author and publisher servers.

Software installed in both servers:

-openjdk version "1.8.0_161"

- Apache Maven 3.5.3    

- aem_6.4_quickstart.jar

Our installation path

/opt/aem_publisher/AEM_6.4_Quickstart_Setup/crx-quickstart/

We download newrelic-java-4.1.0.zip from Newrelic site and unzip it in /opt/aem_publisher/AEM_6.4_Quickstart_Setup/crx-quickstart/

When run the below command in /opt/aem_publisher/AEM_6.4_Quickstart_Setup/crx-quickstart/newrelic

getting below error.

[root@wisctvnewspub01 newrelic]# java -jar newrelic.jar install

***** ( ( o))  New Relic Java Agent Installer

***** Installing version 4.1.0 ...

* Could not edit start script because:

Could not locate a Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, JBoss7 or Glassfish instance in /opt/aem_publisher/AEM_6.4_Quickstart_Setup/crx-quickstart

* Try re-running the install command with the -s <AppServerRootDirectory> option or from <AppServerRootDirectory>/newrelic.

If that doesn't work, locate and edit the start script manually.

* No need to create New Relic configuration file because:

A config file already exists: /opt/aem_publisher/AEM_6.4_Quickstart_Setup/crx-quickstart/newrelic/newrelic.yml

***** Install incomplete

***** Next steps:

For help completing the install, see https://newrelic.com/docs/java/new-relic-for-java

Once newrelic archive is unzipped, you would just need add the jvm argument to include the new relic agent or bind it to cq5 process more like (1)

(1) : java -javaagent:<Path_to_newrelic.jar> -jar cq5-author-4502.jar

Perfect,thanks a lot.

I have the same query for AEM Dispatcher server i don't see any APM for apache HTTPD .

Do you know how to monitor WEB transaction /performance for AEM dispatcher.

Dispatcher does nothing extra but acts like a proxy with other features(filters, cache) specific to AEM so not sure how APM would be helpful here.

If you are unhappy with how New Relic names AEM transactions, take a look at the open source Sling APM framework I created.  It allows New Relic to creating meaningful transaction names by using the sling:resourceType or cq:template of a page being rendered, and also names transactions to Sling servlets based on the servlet called.
