Yesterday during the Ignite keynote event, Microsoft announced the public preview of Azure Monitor, a new cloud service making inbuilt monitoring available to all Azure users. Azure Monitor will help admins in consuming metrics and logs within the portal and via APIs to gain more visibility into the state and performance of their resources.
With Azure Monitor, you can visualize, query, route, archive, and take action on the metrics and logs coming from your Azure resources. You can work with this data using the Monitor portal blade, Insights PowerShell Cmdlets, Cross-Platform CLI, or Azure Insights REST APIs. In this article, we walk through a few of the key components of Azure Monitor.
It also has the ability to configure alert rules to get notified or to take automated actions on issues impacting resources. Azure Monitor enables analytics, troubleshooting, and a unified dashboarding experience within the portal, in addition to enabling a wide range of product integrations via APIs and data export options.
