Monitoring with Azure and Grafana

The Azure Monitor service provides a single source for monitoring Azure resources and the Azure Application Insights service can be used to monitor your live web application. With the new Azure Monitor plugin for Grafana, you can combine the metrics from both services in one graph.

In this session, we will go through some monitoring basics and learn how to set up Azure Monitor in Grafana. We will also look at how to develop your own custom integrations with Grafana for those data sources that are outside of Azure. Using the Simple JSON Data Source plugin for Grafana, we will build a simple backend integration using ASP.NET Core MVC.
