New capabilities in Azure Monitor alerts

Posted on Wednesday, March 6, 2019

There are two new capabilities with Azure Monitor metric alerts:

  • Multi-resource metric alerts allow you to create a single metric alert rule that will be applicable for multiple virtual machines. For example, create a single alert for all virtual machines in a resource group. Learn more about multi-resource metric alerts in this blog post.   
  • Dynamic thresholds  uses machine learning capabilities to decide the right thresholds for your alerts automatically, so you don’t need to guess the thresholds anymore. Dynamic thresholds even takes into account seasonality at an hourly, daily, and weekly level. Dynamic thresholds is available in preview. To learn more read the blog post.

These two features will make it easier for you to create and manage alerts at scale. Read the blog posts and let us know if you have any feedback.
