Monitor your applications
Get everything you need to monitor the availability, performance and usage of your web applications, whether they’re hosted on Azure or on-premises. Azure Monitor supports popular languages and frameworks, such as .NET, Java and Node.js, and integrates with DevOps processes and tools such as Azure DevOps, Jira and PagerDuty. Track live metrics streams, requests and response times, and events.
Monitor your infrastructure
Analyse and optimise the performance of your infrastructure, including virtual machines (VMs), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Azure Storage and databases. Monitor your Linux and Windows VMs and their health and dependencies – all on a single map.
Monitor your network
Monitor and diagnose networking issues without logging in to your virtual machines. Trigger a packet capture, diagnose routing issues, analyse network security group flow logs and gain visibility and control over your Azure network.
How Azure Monitor works
Azure Monitor collects monitoring telemetry from a variety of on-premises and Azure sources. Management tools, such as those in Azure Security Center and Azure Automation, also push log data to Azure Monitor. The service aggregates and stores this telemetry in a log data store that’s optimised for cost and performance. Analyse data, set up alerts, get end-to-end views of your applications, and use machine learning-driven insights to quickly identify and resolve problems.Read a detailed overview
