Azure Monitor Agent and data collection rules public preview

Published date: 02 September, 2020

Azure Monitor is introducing a new concept for data collection configuration and a new, unified agent for Azure Monitor in public preview. The new agent and data collection rules improve on a few key areas of data collection from VMs in Azure Monitor, including:

  • Send data to both Log Analytics and Azure Monitor metrics.
  • Scope data collection to subsets of VMs for a single workspace.
  • Send data to multiple workspaces on Linux VMs (multi-homing).
  • Improved Windows event filtering.
