You will gain a practical understanding of how to build a monitoring strategy using many different Azure Services. The demos within will display the types of monitoring that are available as well as how they can be configured.
Using all of the services that Microsoft Azure provides, how does one leverage those services to make sure that your deployed application and services are performing according to your expectations? In this course, Designing a Monitoring Strategy for a Solution in Microsoft Azure, you will learn foundational knowledge of/gain the ability to combine available 1st and 3rd party monitoring with logging tools to build a cohesive Monitoring, Logging and Reporting strategy for your applications and systems within Azure. First, you will learn what 1st party Azure Services are available that provide monitoring and logging functionality. Next, you will discover how these services can be configured to push their data to 3rd party tools. Finally, you will explore how to configure Alerts and Log Analytics so that you can be notified when a problem arises based on the monitoring and logging that has been implemented. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure Monitoring, Logging, and Reporting services needed to define a cohesive Monitoring and Logging strategy for solutions that have been deployed within Azure.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Brian Harrison, and I am a cloud solution architect for Microsoft. Welcome to my course, Designing a Monitoring Strategy for a Solution in Microsoft Azure. This course will provide you with the knowledge that you will need to integrate data that is produced from your Azure deployments, and then based on that data, use visualization tools to create insights. Those insights will then help you respond appropriately when you are alerted to a potential problem. Some of the major topics that we will cover include discussion around the monitoring and logging tools that are available within Azure out of the box, talk about how those tools can be integrated with third-party products that you may already have, how to use groups within the monitoring and logging data to help provide better insights and respond faster to events, and then we'll do a deep dive into alerting, and how you can respond to events that have been defined based on the available monitoring and logging tools. By the end of the course, you should be able to determine what monitoring and logging tools are going to be the most relevant for you, and then using those tools, you should be able to put together a complete strategy for how to get the data that is most important, how to visualize it using log queries as an example, and then most importantly how to respond to an event that has been created based on that logging data.
