RELEASE: Azure Monitor for Virtual Machines

imageToday we’re announcing the general availability of Azure Monitor for virtual machines (VMs), which provides an in-depth view of VM performance trends and dependencies. You can access Azure Monitor for VMs from the Azure VM resource blade to view details about a single VM, from the Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets (VMSS) resource blade to view details about a single VM scale set, and from Azure Monitor to understand compute issues at scale.

Azure Monitor for VMs brings together key monitoring data about your Windows and Linux VMs, allowing you to:

  • Troubleshoot guest-level performance issues and understand trends in VM resource utilization.
  • Determine whether back-end VM dependencies are connected properly and which clients of a VM may be affected by any issues the VM is having.
  • Discover VM hotspots at scale based on resource utilization, connection metrics, performance trends, and alerts.
