by Tim Warner

Microsoft provides administrators with several options for monitoring their Azure resources. In this course, you learn when, why, and how to use these tools to visualize Azure resource metrics and events.

What you'll learn

If you have a site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) between your on-premises environment and one or more virtual private networks (VNets) in Azure, then you probably have excellent visibility into the on-premises side of the network equation. In this course, Monitoring Microsoft Azure Resources and Workloads, you will learn how to use Microsoft Azure monitoring tools to gain monitor Azure network (including on-premises) resources closely and effectively. First, you will gain an understanding of how to monitor individual Azure-based resources. Next, you will use Microsoft Monitor to aggregate monitoring across entire hybrid cloud workloads. Finally, you will visualize monitoring data by using Azure Log Analytics, Power BI, and other first- and third-party tools. When you are finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Azure workload monitoring that will help you as you move forward in your career as an Azure administrator or solution architect.
