Measures reported by the test:

Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation


Indicates whether/not Microsoft Azure cloud is available.


The value 100 indicates that the cloud is available. The value 0 for this measure indicates that the cloud is not available.

Response time:

Indicates the time taken by the cloud to respond to client requests.


Ideally, the value of this measure should be low. A high value or a steady increase in the value of this measure is a cause for concern, as it indicates poor responsiveness. This can be caused by factors such as a bottleneck in the cloud or a configuration problem.
