General availability: Application Insights Node.js pre-aggregated standard metrics
Published date: 09 June, 2021
Azure Monitor Application Insights is a cloud native application monitoring offering which enables you to observe failures, bottlenecks, and usage patterns to resolve incidents faster and reduce downtime.
With the release of v2.0.0, the Node.js SDK now calculates standard metrics and dimensions independently of sampling decisions, allowing you to optimize ingestion costs without sacrificing metric accuracy. We refer to this powerful feature as “pre-aggregation”.
Standard metrics includes server request rate, server response time, failed requests, server exceptions, log count, and more with the build-in capability to slice and alert on key dimensions such as result code, performance buckets, and cloud role name.
