Public preview: Enable VM insights using Azure Monitor agent

Published date: August 03, 2022

Currently, Azure Monitor VM insights requires a Log Analytics agent and a dependency agent installed on each virtual machine or virtual machine scale set to be monitored. This public preview will introduce a version of VM insights that makes use of the new Azure Monitor agent and would replace the existing Log Analytics agent.

Several key capabilities have been released in preview:

  • Easy configuration using data collection rules to collect VM performance counters and specific data types.
  • Option to enable/disable processes and dependencies data that provides Map view, thus, optimizing costs.
  • Enhanced security and performance that comes with using Azure Monitor agent and managed identity.
