Better New Relic Alerts
The New Relic Alert email messages sent by the system are not helpful.
The messages reference an application ID such as 'wordpress-000-00000-00000.cloudwaysapps.com.' This does me no good at all. I have more than a dozen servers, many of which have multiple apps.
Without going into each individual server and checking the cloudwaysapps addresss for each of its apps, I have no way of knowing which app is actually generating this error. These errors need to provide two pieces of additional information to be useful 1) the name of the server, and 2) the name of the app. In both cases, these names should be the ones I set for the server or app.
If we wouldn't have to rename them manually would be better. Why not update/sync the name to the current CNAME or the app name?

You can login to New Relic and rename those to the actual apps or servers that they are. I did that and now it all makes sense.
