Application Monitoring and Alerting
Platform Monitoring and Alerting
In this section, you will learn how to properly monitor Azure resources at a higher level. We will also discuss Azure network security and access management.
We will cover these priorities in three parts: monitor using Azure Health, Azure Advisor, and Activity Log; network security with Network Watcher Service and Azure Log Analytics; and review the Azure Security Center.
Now that we have a solid understanding of application monitoring and alerting with Azure, we need to think about how to properly monitor Azure resources at a higher level. While Azure Monitor is a pretty flexible system for getting basic metrics about Azure VM’s, we need to think about how to monitor other Azure components. We also need to think about Azure network security and access management.
Section two will address these priorities in three parts. In part one, we’ll look at how to actually monitor all of the different Azure components using Azure Health, Azure Advisor, and the Activity Log. In part two we will focus on network security the Network Watcher Service and Azure Log Analytics. Finally in part three take a detailed look at the Azure Security Center and see how it can help ensure our Azure infrastructure is not compromised.
So without further ado, let’s begin.
