NewRelic for Ruby AWS-SDK

Unofficial NewRelic instrumentation for the official AWS SDK.

At present, this is an embryonic set of instrumentation focussing primarily on the underlying client and S3 functionality plus a little bit of SQS and Simple Email Service. Pull requests are welcome!


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'newrelic-aws'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself with:

$ gem install newrelic-aws

If you're having trouble with NewRelic attepmting to instrument the old AWS::S3 gem (the one not created by Amazon that is mostly unmaintained) you may want to add disable_aws-s3: true to your newrelic.yml configuration. NewRelic has this intrumentation built-in, and it may complain since Amazon's SDK uses the same namespace but a different class structure.
