What is Microsoft 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.
Azure - PostgreSQL Server
Azure Database for PostgreSQL provides a managed database service for app development and deployment, allowing you to create a PostgreSQL database in minutes and scale right away. Designed for app developers, Azure PostgreSQL Server allows users to focus on application management and have assurance in its high availability and trustworthy cloud platform.
Opsview Monitor's Azure PostgreSQL Opspack provides all the latest metrics to visualize and track by providing useful dashboarding, reports and notifications. Common PostgreSQL issues such as I/O issues and connections are easy to identify with granular customizable thresholds.
Azure - IoT
Azure’s IoT Suite enables users to capture and analyze untapped data to improve organizational efficiency. With everything from remote monitoring to analysis and insights on untapped data, the Azure IoT Suite can help transform your business and easily connect all types of devices.
Opsview Monitor's IoT Opspack provides all the metrics to track your IoT devices. Our Opspack empowers developers to monitor the full lifecycle of your IoT deployments by receiving cloud-to-device service metrics.
Azure - MySql Server
Based on SQL Server database technology, SQL Azure enables organizations to store relational data in the cloud and quickly scale the size of their databases up or down as business needs change.
Opsview Monitor's Azure MySQL Opspack provides all the metrics to track your MySQL databases. MySQL service checks include active connections, CPU Percentage, memory and storage metrics.
Azure - Generic
Microsoft Azure provides software as a service (SAAS), platform as a service, and infrastructure as a service while supporting different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.
Opsview Monitor's Azure Generic Opspack provides service checks to track your custom metrics. Easily integrate your custom defined Azure metrics within a few clicks.
Azure - Virtual Machines Scale Sets
Microsoft Azure VM Scale Sets are groups of individual virtual machines (VMs) within the Microsoft Azure public cloud that IT administrators can configure and manage as a single unit.
Opsview Monitor's Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets Opspack provides all the latest metrics to monitor quickly and easily. When scaling virtual machines automatically, monitoring is crucial to identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies.
Azure - Elastic Pool
The Elastic database features of Azure SQL Database are designed to simplify data tier development and management, especially for Software as a Service (SaaS) developers when large numbers of databases are used to support a dynamic end-customer base.
Opsview Monitor's Azure Elastic Pool Opspack provides all the latest metrics to monitor your Elastic pools. Our Opspack contains important monitoring data that can be useful for further sizing your future Elastic pools.
