How Does eG Enterprise Monitor the Microsoft Azure App Service?

eG Enterprise collects metrics from the Azure App Service in an agentless manner only - i.e., an eG remote agent deployed on any Windows/Linux host/VM in the environment.

  • In order to collect metrics on the status and overall health of the web applications deployed on the Azure App service, the eG remote agent communicates with the Microsoft Azure cloud and pulls metrics by making Azure ARM REST API calls.

  • The eG remote agent can also be configured to perform business transaction monitoring for .NET web applications that may be deployed on the Azure App Service. eG's proprietary .NET Profiler is used for this purpose.

To enable the eG agent to collect all the metrics above, you need to make sure that the requirements detailed in thePre-requisites for Monitoring the Microsoft Azure App Servicetopic are fulfilled.
