While a lot of my inspiration for blog posts come from talking with New Relic users, it’s hard to share them as examples because their so specific and often confidential. So I find myself struggling more to find a generic “for instance” that’s easy to understand and accessible to all everyone.
Which should explain why I use my home environment as the sample use case so often. Even if you don’t have exactly the same gear or setup I do, it’s likely you have something analogous. On top of that, if you don’t have the specific element I’m discussing, many times I believe it’s something you ought to consider.
