New Relic offers monitoring of your webapplications, by installing a daemon on the webserver and hooking into the PHP-core. This allows monitoring of specific PHP-functions. This Yireo extensions extends this behaviour so that additional Magento information can be logged.


Many thanks to Thomas Neumann with various contributions to version 1.2.0

This is not an official New Relic product, and is not endorsed by New Relic.

Note that some of the functionality is only available with the New Relic Pro version: Custom metrics are only available through custom dashboards, which can only be created in the New Relic Pro subscriptions. Additionally, our Magento extension provides additional variables, which are only available with transaction tracking which again requires the Pro-version.


  • Make sure to install the New Relic PHP Agent first. See the New Relic site for details on this.
  • Make sure the New Relic PHP Agent is running.
  • Make sure that you are receiving data in your New Relic monitoring.
  • Install our Yireo_NewRelic extension for Magento. Go to the Downloads section on our site, and follow the instructions from there.
  • Configure the Yireo_NewRelic options in the Magento System Configuration:
    • Set the Application Name to whatever you like.
    • Configure the License Key as received from New Relic.

Override of Varien_Profiler

This extension overrides the default Magento profiler - a class called Varien_Profiler is placed in the file app/code/community/Varien/Profiler.php so that all profiling information is overridden by the Yireo_NewRelic profiler.
