Azure Monitor Service: a first test with logical apps

Last week, Microsoft released its newest feature: Azure monitor. This new platform service provides monitoring for single Azure resources and can visualize, query, route, archive, and take action on the metrics and logs coming from those resources. Working in an enterprise environment, I am curious to explore how this feature provides an added value to cloud integration. In this post, I’d therefore would like to point out some interesting properties! Personally, I’ll mainly use Logical apps to investigate Azure Monitor, but those technics are, of course, applicable to other Azure resources as well.

In this blog post, I’d like to highlight some interesting ways or best practices on how to increase its performance!
