App Speed Index Think your app is fast? Stop guessing and start knowing with the App Speed Index. The App Speed Index leverages our Big Data to provide Big Insight to our customers. New Relic collects over 55 billion performance metrics and monitors 1.5 billion page loads on behalf of our 25,000 customers and their 450,000 application instances. All of that data equates to 3.5 terabytes of new data collected, stored and analyzed each day.
With the App Speed Index, our customers will be able to classify their application into a Peer Group of similar applications (ex. eCommerce, SaaS, Gaming, and Consumer Internet applications) and benchmark their app with industry peers. Find out your percentile rank within your peer group for end user and application response times, error rates, and application availability to find out how fast you really are.
Learn more about the App Speed Index here, or check out this blog post. And don't forget to check out our living infographic, updated daily to show how the peer groups rank by performance and availability. It even lists the fastest applications monitored by New Relic!
