Host Template: Cloud - Azure - Load Balancers

Azure Load Balancers allow you to scale applications, providing your services with high availability. They support TCP and UDP applications for both inbound and outbound scenarios with high throughput/low latency. Load Balancers contain frontend and backend pools which balance traffic according to health probes and Load Balancer Rules which you can define. Public Load Balancers can also allow your Virtual Machines to possess outbound connections by translating private IP addresses to public IP addresses.

This Host Template allows you to monitor all the metrics you need to efficiently run Load Balancers on Microsoft Azure. After installation, you'll be able to check your endpoint availability, as well as monitor packet and bytes transmission accurately.

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
Azure - LB - Endpoint Availability Availability of VIP (Virtual IP) and DIP (Dynamic IP) endpoints, based on probe results [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A N/A
Azure - LB - Packets Transmitted Total number of Packets/SYN Packets transmitted within time period [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A N/A
Azure - LB - Bytes Count Total number of Bytes transmitted within time period [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A B

Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Cloud - Azure - Load Balancers Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.



Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this Host Template

The Service Checks in this Host Template use the following variables, and they will be added to your Opsview Monitor instance when you import the Opspack:

AZURE_RESOURCE_DETAILS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your Azure Resource Details.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--resource-group Arg1 Resource Group Name of the Azure resource group to be monitored
--resource-name Arg2 Resource Name Name of the Azure resource to be monitored


For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

For mode-specific help, run the plugin with the -h -m <mode> flags. This will list the required and optional Variable Arguments for that mode. The appropriate mode for each Service Check is listed here:

Service Check Name Mode

Azure - LB - Packets Transmitted Az.Net.LB.Packets
Azure - LB - Bytes Count Az.Net.LB.Bytes.Count



Step 3: Apply changes and the system will now be monitored
