What is Azure Monitor?

Azure Monitor is a full stack monitoring service in Azure that provides a complete set of features to monitor your Azure resources in addition to resources in other clouds and on-premises.

How It Works

Azure Monitor triggers user defined alerts by watching metrics.
  • When an alert is fired (Fired state) in Azure Monitor, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When the alert is resolved (Resolved state) in Azure Monitor, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
