    What is New Relic?

    New Relic is an observability tool that offers engineers a comprehensive suite of services to monitor, debug, and improve their entire engineering stack. As a data-focused platform, it enables a data-driven approach for engineering teams to refine their systems efficiently. Recognized as the first APM designed for AI, New Relic facilitates the monitoring of the entire AI stack, ensuring that engineers can manage and improve their AI applications effectively.

    With over 30 capabilities, New Relic's versatility extends to full stack monitoring—including the front end, back end, infrastructure, vulnerabilities, and logs—along with specialized AI capabilities. The tool is designed to provide a complete picture of an engineer's system, enhancing collaboration and allowing for a streamlined workflow. Its transparent, predictable, and flexible pricing model offers more value by charging only for the data and users, not the tools, ensuring that costs are aligned with usage.

    New Relic's generous free tier, which requires no credit card, along with its extensive library of over 700 integrations, including popular languages and frameworks such as Java, Node.js, .NET, PHP, MySQL, Python, and more, makes it accessible and practical for engineers across various domains. Moreover, New Relic is trusted by companies like Tokopedia and HealthifyMe for achieving end-to-end observability and scaling systems efficiently, and by World Fuel Services for its cost-effective pricing strategy.

    On the security front, New Relic is committed to maintaining high standards with enterprise-level security measures. It complies with GDPR, is A–LIGN 27001 certified, SOC2 Type II verified, and FEDRAMP compliant, ensuring that user data is handled with the utmost care and in accordance with stringent regulations.

    Exporting Logs to CSV in New Relic

    Using Logs UI for Standard Export

    New Relic has introduced a feature that allows you to export logs directly from the Logs UI. This feature, made available on August 11, 2023, provides the flexibility to export logs in either JSON or CSV formats. To perform a standard export to CSV, navigate to the Logs UI and select the CSV format when exporting. It is important to note that there is a limit to the number of logs that can be exported in a single operation.

    Expanding Export Capabilities with Data Plus

    To export a volume of logs beyond the standard limit, you can utilize the Data Plus offering. Data Plus enhances your exporting capabilities by allowing for both Streaming Export and Historical Export. This means you can choose to export logs in real time (Streaming Export) or access and export logs from the past (Historical Export), suiting different requirements such as deeper data exploration or compliance needs. To use these features, you must first subscribe to Data Plus, after which you can export additional logs through the same Logs UI, selecting CSV as the export format.
