Awesome Azure Monitor

Score 8 out of 10

It is used by Engineering and Cloud Operations team. We extensively use Application Insights to log our data and for any debugging purpose. The granular access to logs to individual teams and users controls access to the logs on production systems in case we need to do some debugging sessions. We also enable monitoring and alerting for any production issues.
  • It supports all the Azure PAAS services.
  • Can monitor both infrastructure and application
  • Does not give good service level metrics.
  • It would be nice if we could use monitoring to scale out and scale in.
We were able to get a single pane of glass for all our monitoring needs on Azure Monitor. However, we would like to see it improve to auto scale out and scale in depending on the load without human intervention. This can help us get to the No Ops model and rely on automated processes rather than manual intervention.
  • We are able to react quickly to the issues.
  • Debugging sessions are yielding quicker results to generate RCA.
While other tools have their own unique capability, Azure Monitor helps us monitor essential PAAS services that are not supported by other tools. So even though we have one other APM tool, we still rely on Azure Monitor for some of the special PAAS services, this is a huge advantage.
Overall it has been a positive experience. Especially we have one product line that extensively uses Azure infrastructure. We leverage some of the capabilities daily, especially on the production operations side. So far, for the most part, we can get the functionality we are looking for to monitoring, alert, and RCA.

Azure Monitor maximizes the performance of our applications. We need to be up and running every second, as we are an e-commerce business. Every second we are down is lost revenue in the form of sales, leads, and agent time that is not productive. It is critical to be aware and up at all times.

  • Ease of use
Azure Monitor is best suited for companies and scenarios where you are connected and running several applications that are imperative to the business. Azure Monitor is not as useful for companies that are not using software that cannot go down. It is best for companies that are heavily invested in technology and software to deliver to their customers.

  • Alerts
I used DataDog and LogicMonitor in the past, and both are reasonable solutions, overall, it is critical for companies that rely heavily on applications to power their business. I recommend having one of these solutions to avoid downtime, alert the proper contacts what issues may come up. All of them are useful.
I have not had to work with Azure Monitor support, so it is difficult to say how well the support team is. I assume that Azure has a well-versed team on the customer service side to assist with any issues customers may have. I may need them in the feature.
