newrelic-api: A Python interface to New Relic’s API¶
newrelic-api is a package for easily interacting with New Relic’s API in a concise, pythonic way. For full documentation on each endpoint, please see New Relic’s API explorer. This is based off of the v2 API.
To install, install via pip or easy_install:
$ pip install newrelic-api or $ easy_install newrelic-api
If you want to install it from source, grab the git repository and run setup.py:
$ git clone git://github.com/ambitioninc/newrelic-api.git $ cd newrelic-api $ python setup.py install
You will need your New Relic API key for authenticating your requests. The New Relic documentation for accessing this can be found here.
You can set the API key as the environment variable NEWRELIC_API_KEY, or you can pass the API key as an argument in the interface constructor:
from newrelic_api import Applications app = Applications(NEWRELIC_API_KEY='4baa5d20cfba466a5e075b02698f455c') response = app.list(filter_name='demo')
