The Azure Compute Layer

The tests mapped to this layer:

  • Monitor the status of Azure VMs, and lead you to powered-off VMs;

  • Monitor the resource usage of Azure VMs, thereby pinpointing resource-hungry VMs;

  • Monitor the availability, accessibility, and responsiveness of web applications deployed on the Azure Apps Service, and report abnormalities;

  • Monitor the scaling rules set in Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets, and measure their effectiveness;
