I sold New Relic some time ago. First, because it was under performing compared to other holdings, but secondly due to what I perceive as a competitive threat from Elastic. Although, from what I know so far about this new tool, it's a pretty blunt instrument. It simply informs if a service is down. There's a lot of distance between performing well and no service. A good monitoring service will let you know some aspect of the environment is sick but not yet dead.
