Application Insights

Official Documentation

Service Description

With Application Insights, correspondingly configured applications from various platforms can be monitored at runtime and their runtime behavior evaluated. Various metrics (performance, faults, etc.) can be controlled and tracked. The telemetry data supplied by Application Insights from the monitored applications can be processed, visualized, filtered, and segmented to obtain a constant overview of the state and usage of a monitored application. Applications in various languages (C#, VB, JavaScript, Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, etc.) and platforms (ASP.NET, Android, iOS, Cordova, Angular, Node.js, Joomla, SharePoint, etc.) as well as numerous logging frameworks (Log4Net, NLog, Java, Log4J, etc.) are supported.
