Monitor Azure

What is Microsoft Azure? 

Monitoring Azure

As a leading cloud computing platform, Microsoft Azure is an open and growing collection of integrated cloud services used to build, deploy, and manage applications. With the power to deploy applications instantly, Azure enhances security measures, provides flexibility to operate within multiple environments and scales depending on your needs. 

What Opsview Azure Opspacks Can Monitor 

As a way of gaining complete visibility into your Azure services, we have created Opspacks covering several Azure components. Each of these Opspacks collect important metrics and ensure your Azure services are running as expected. Here is a full overview of our latest Azure Monitoring additions to our Integrations.  

Azure - Virtual Machines

Azure Virtual Machines gives you the flexibility of virtualization for a wide range of computing solutions including development and testing, running applications and extending your data center. 

Opsview Monitor's Azure Virtual Machines Opspack provides all the latest metrics to track your IAAS VM metrics. Our Opspack allows you to pull all metrics into dashboards, graphs and powerful reporting to get the information you need to diagnose performance issues.

Azure - SQL

SQL Database provides web-facing database functionality as a utility service where you pay only for what you use. Cloud-based database solutions such as SQL Database provide many benefits such as rapid provisioning, cost-effective scalability, high availability, and reduced management overhead.

Opsview Monitor's Azure SQL Opspack helps you diagnose your performance and cost metrics quickly. Opsview provides cost metrics to manage scalability costs such as dtu limit, used and dwu consumption percent. SQL Performance metrics include the ability to track connections, CPU percent, firewall blocks and more.

Azure - Redis

Azure Redis Cache is based on the popular open source Redis cache. It gives you access to a secure, dedicated Redis cache managed by Microsoft and accessible from any application within Azure. Azure Redis Cache is available in a variety of tiers, offering an expanded set of throughput and consistent low-latency data access to power fast, scalable Azure applications. 

Opsview Monitor's Azure Redis Opspack contains all the latest service checks to monitor your Redis environment. Opsview helps keep track of performance metrics such as Cache Read, which shows the amount of data read from cache. Cache issues can directly affect server side network bandwidth limits used by this cache.
