Many of our customers list Microsoft Azure as the main cloud provider they’re considering using, or already have in production. As of today, we’re pleased to announce Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring direct integration with Azure Monitor for visibility into many Azure Services.
As before, you can continue to monitor Azure Container Service (AKS) and Azure VMs using metrics from the Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring collectd agent. You’ll want to continue to use that agent as it’s still the only way to get the 1-second, high-resolution metrics for your real-time dashboard and alert use cases.
Now, with our direct integration for Azure Monitor, you have access to pre-built Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring dashboards for almost every Azure service:
- Azure App Service
- Azure Batch
- Azure Event Hubs
- Azure Logic Apps
- Azure Redis Cache
- Azure SQL Database (including SQL Database Elastic Pools)
- Azure Storage
- Azure Virtual Machine
- Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets
Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring metrics for all Azure Monitor metrics are part of this release — even if you don’t see the specific services listed above. We’ll continue to add new pre-built dashboards for the remaining Azure services over the next few months.
No matter how you collect and manage metrics, you can always take advantage of your Azure metadata in Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring. Both for relevant Azure services and for metrics captured via the Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring collectd agent. The metadata allows you to slice and dice by resource groups, regions, custom tags, and all other properties and dimensions important to your operations and business.
Configuring Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring to monitor Azure is simple. To get started, log into your Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring account and navigate to the Azure icon in the Integrations section.
