Zero instrumentation application monitoring for Kubernetes - Azure Monitor Application Insights


Currently you can enable monitoring for your Java apps running on Kubernetes without instrumenting your code - use the Java standalone agent. While the solution to seamlessly enabling application monitoring is in the works for other languages, use the SDKs to monitor your apps running on AKS: ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET, Node.js, JavaScript, and Python.

Application monitoring without instrumenting the code

Currently, only Java lets you enable application monitoring without instrumenting the code. To monitor applications in other languages use the SDKs.


Once enabled, the Java agent will automatically collect a multitude of requests, dependencies, logs, and metrics from the most widely used libraries and frameworks.

Follow the detailed instructions to monitor your Java apps running in Kubernetes apps, as well as other environments.

Other languages
