One agent to rule them all: Azure Monitor Agent

There’s a new Azure agent in town – Azure Monitor Agent (AMA). I hear you saying, “Wait, aren’t there already enough Azure agents? So why another new agent?” A very valid question! Indeed, there are already a few Azure monitoring agents: the Log Analytics Agent, the Diagnostic Extension agent, and the Telegraf agent (and also the Dependency agent if you want to count it separately).

Set up Availability Monitoring from the End Users Perspective

A recurring theme of modern monitoring tools is that they focus on the user, not the systems. To put it another way, while monitoring your infrastructure is essential, it matters more when your customers can’t interact with your application. That would mean lost sales, lost time, unhappy people – and unfortunately for us, unhappy people like to share how grumpy they are. It’s bad for business! But that’s why we’ve made Availability Monitoring in SquaredUp.

For those on an ITIL journey, ServiceNow appears to be the service to beat. ServiceNow has tremendous flexibility and thousands of different workflows to support your business. And if you’re using SCOM to populate your CMDB, you’re leaps and bounds ahead of the average organization. Sadly, that flexibility comes with the cost of being stuck inside of the ServiceNow web interface.

I was looking to make the session a little fun, in homage to the original “Fun SCOM Monitoring” video from CTGlobal on monitoring a coffee machine with SCOM 2007 R2. So, I thought what’s the next best thing after coffee? Beer!
