Azure VM Status (classic) Test

This test enables administrators to determine how many virtual machines were registered with the Azure cloud and how many are currently powered on/powered off. In addition, this test helps administrators to determine how many virtual machines were currently added and how many virtual machines were removed. Using this test, administrators can also instantly identify the virtual machines that are inaccessible or disconnected.

Note:

eG Enterprise cannot auto-discover and monitor the Virtual Machines deployed through the Azure Resource Manager whereas Virtual Machines deployed in Azure Classic Mode can be monitored.
