microsoft azure cloud services monitoring

What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a Cloud Computing service operated by Microsoft for application management via Microsoft-managed data-centers. It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

Created in 2010, Microsoft Azure uses large-scale virtualization at datacenters worldwide to offer more than 600 services including Mobile Services, Storage, Communication, etc.

Microsoft Azure monitoring

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to monitor availability and performance of Microsoft Azure with the Microsoft APIs.

The ServicePilot cloud-azure package can be configured to collect metrics from the following Azure resources:

  • Resource Health
  • Costs
  • Key Vault
  • Virtual Machines
  • Virtual Machine Scale Sets
  • Disks
  • Network Public IP Addresses
  • Network Interfaces
  • Network Load Balancer
  • Storage
  • SQL Server
  • PostGres Flexible Server
  • PostGres Single Server
  • Web Service Plan
  • Web Application
  • Function
  • Kubernetes Service

API call rate limits

Due to rate limits imposed by Microsoft, ServicePilot recommends limiting the use of this package to elements that cannot be monitored by using other ServicePilot packages. Monitor the WebAPI usage objects to see how many web requests are sent to Microsoft and how many fail. Note the rate limits apply per tenant, per source IP address and per application.
