Technical overview

This extension implements an Observer to send various events to the New Relic dashboard. This extension implements two Blocks for browser timings via New Relic. One block for the header, one block for the body. This extension intercepts the class Magento\Framework\View\Element\AbstractBlock to send a custom parameter per Magento block to New Relic.

Quick Start to install your Yireo extension

Installation via composer URL

We recommend to install Magento 2 extensions via composer. See the Composer project for instructions on how to get composer up and running. Once composer is installed, use the following command to install our extension.

composer require yireo/magento2-newrelic2

This will make composer download the package from Packagist. After the composer installation has finished, use the following commands to enable the module within Magento:

bin/magento module:enable Yireo_NewRelic2
bin/magento cache:clean
bin/magento setup:upgrade

After these commands, the extension is ready for use in Magento. If you were already logged into the Magento Admin Panel, make sure to logout and log back in again, before proceeding. Do not forget to grab yourself a manual copy of our extension as a backup.

Manual installation

Please note that we strongly recommend using composer instead. It allows for dependency tracking and in the end, prevents breaking your site. However, in some cases, it might be required to do a non-composer installation. For these exceptional situations, download the module ZIP from our site (under the tab File Downloads). Next, create a folder with the following name and copy to the ZIP contents to it:

app/code/Yireo/NewRelic2

After the files have been uploaded, confirm that all files are in place. For instance, you should have a file like app/code/Yireo/NewRelic2/etc/module.xml. Next, use the following commands to enable the module within Magento:

bin/magento module:enable Yireo_NewRelic2
bin/magento cache:clean
bin/magento setup:upgrade

After these commands, the extension is ready for use in Magento. If you were already logged into the Magento Admin Panel, make sure to logout and log back in again, before proceeding. Do not forget to grab yourself a manual copy of our extension as a backup.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, it is not. As a policy, all our Yireo software is unencrypted - we do not make use of technologies like ionCube or ZendOptimizer. All PHP-code is open source, but for commercial extensions the code is only given to paying customers.

You probably would like to know if this extension is working under a specific Magento version 2.X.Y. However, from a technical point of view, the question is wrong: The major Magento version 2.X.Y is not semantical but instead used for marketing purposes. It doesn't give any guarantees.

Instead, we maintain compatibility with the actual modules that lie underneath (like Magento_Catalog or the Magento Framework). And version management for these dependencies is handled via composer. We strongly advice you to rely on composer to answer the question whether our extension works under a specific Magento version. This is the only way to guarantee compatibility in a professional way.

Alternatively, study our CHANGELOG for details on the progress we made.

This extension is offered for free. Feel free to go the GitHub repository (see the link under Quick Start> Downloads) and open an Issue there. Please note that this is a voluntary open source project. The more helpful you are in describing the issue at hand, the more likely volunteers can come in to help you with the issue.

Notes

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.

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.

Testing

Unit testing

This extension ships with PHPUnit tests. The generic PHPUnit configuration in Magento 2 will pick up on these tests. To only test Yireo extensions, copy the file phpunit.xml.yireo to your Magento folder dev/tests/unit. Next, from within that folder run PHPUnit. For instance:

phpunit -c phpunit.xml.yireo --bootstrap PATH_TO_MAGENTO/dev/tests/unit/framework/bootstrap.php
