What is monitored by Azure Monitor?

This article is a reference of the different applications and services that are monitored by Azure Monitor.

Insights and curated visualizations

Some services have a curated monitoring experience. That is, Microsoft provides customized functionality meant to act as a starting point for monitoring those services. These experiences are collectively known as curated visualizations with the larger more complex of them being called Insights.

The experiences collect and analyze a subset of logs and metrics and depending on the service and might also provide out-of-the-box alerting. They present this telemetry in a visual layout. The visualizations vary in size and scale. Some are considered part of Azure Monitor and follow the support and service level agreements for Azure. They are supported in all Azure regions where Azure Monitor is available. Other curated visualizations provide less functionality, might not scale, and might have different agreements. Some might be based solely on Azure Monitor Workbooks, while others might have an extensive custom experience.

The table below lists the available curated visualizations and more detailed information about them.

Note

Another type of older visualization called monitoring solutions are no longer in active development. The replacement technology is the Azure Monitor Insights mentioned above. We suggest you use the insights and not deploy new instances of solutions. For more information on the solutions, see Monitoring solutions in Azure Monitor.

The advanced search capability helps you identify resource dependencies, enabling scenarios like identifying resource that are hosting your website, by simply searching for your website name.
Azure Container Insights GA Yes Monitors the performance of container workloads that are deployed to managed Kubernetes clusters hosted on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). It gives you performance visibility by collecting metrics from controllers, nodes, and containers that are available in Kubernetes through the Metrics API. Container logs are also collected. After you enable monitoring from Kubernetes clusters, these metrics and logs are automatically collected for you through a containerized version of the Log Analytics agent for Linux.
Azure Monitor for Resource Groups GA No Triage and diagnose any problems your individual resources encounter, while offering context as to the health and performance of the resource group as a whole.
Azure Monitor SAP GA No An Azure-native monitoring product for anyone running their SAP landscapes on Azure. It works with both SAP on Azure Virtual Machines and SAP on Azure Large Instances. Collects telemetry data from Azure infrastructure and databases in one central location and visually correlate the data for faster troubleshooting. You can monitor different components of an SAP landscape, such as Azure virtual machines (VMs), high-availability cluster, SAP HANA database, SAP NetWeaver, and so on, by adding the corresponding provider for that component.
Azure Stack HCI insights Preview Yes Azure Monitor Workbook based. Provides health, performance, and usage insights about registered Azure Stack HCI, version 21H2 clusters that are connected to Azure and are enrolled in monitoring. It stores its data in a Log Analytics workspace, which allows it to deliver powerful aggregation and filtering and analyze data trends over time.
