Viewing Azure App Services in Observe#

By default, Observe provides the following dashboards:

Azure App Services#

The Azure App Services dashboards provide a high-level overview of your Azure App Service. From the dashboards, you can answer questions such as the following:

  • What is the execution time for my app?

  • What are the HTTP response codes for my app?

  • How often is my app executing?

Once you find an Azure App Service of interest, you can select it from the honeycomb at the top of the dashboard and then click Open to go to the instance view of the Azure App Service. Here you can find more detailed information including the following:

  • What are my slowest requests or dependencies?

  • What requests fail on my app?

In addition to pre-defined metrics, use the Metrics Explorer graph at the bottom of the dashboard to visualize any metric related to an Azure App Service.

If you find a request that you want to explore further, you can double-click the Azure App Service Operation ID from the table and go to the detailed view of the operation. It provides you with a Gantt view of all of the requests or dependencies that make up the operation as well as any associated events and traces.
