Just watched Joe Ferris video on optimizing performance for a Rails app. In that session he uses New Relic as a monitoring tool.
So I decided to implement New Relic for the latest app I’m currently working on:
New Relic is working fine, only I’m pretty new to this monitoring business and I’m not sure what all those metrics mean. For instance, I see for my PublicationsController#index action, I see a metric of:
avg response time: 1.26 sec
Is that a lot, or normal? Should I start optimizing that method?
So, I would love to find some documentation on all this metrics, and how to interpretate them.
Thanks for the advice,
