How does eG Enterprise Monitor Microsoft Azure Traffic Managers?

eG Enterprise provides a specialized Microsoft Azure Traffic Managers model to monitor the traffic load balancing activities in Microsoft Azure. To collect metrics from the target traffic managers, eG Enterprise employs an agent-based monitoring approach - i.e., it uses an eG external agent deployed on any host/VM in the environment. This external agent communicates with the Microsoft Azure cloud and pulls metrics on traffic load balancing by making Azure ARM REST API calls - this includes metrics on data traffic and the health status of the endpoints in the Traffic Manager.

To enable the eG agent to pull these metrics, you need to make sure that the requirements detailed in thePre-requisites for Monitoring Microsoft Azure Load Balancerstopic are fulfilled.
