This course, Monitoring Azure Resources and Web Applications with System Center Operations Manager 2016 (SCOM), the final in the SCOM 2016 learning path, elevates your exploration on SCOM’s monitoring behaviors by turning your attention first to web applications. In this course’s first half, you’ll explore Web Application Availability Monitoring and Transaction Monitoring. You’ll also dig extraordinarily deep into your applications’ internal workings by enabling SCOM’s developer-focus APM – or Application Performance Monitoring – toolset. The second covers monitoring Azure. Using your on-premises SCOM instance, you’ll integrate your local web application data with Azure’s Application Analytics engine. You’ll measure behaviors for Platform-as-a-Service Azure websites and keep tabs on Azure virtual machines and their accompanying resources like storage and networking. You’ll wrap up with a quick look at SCOM’s potential next-generation as you integrate SCOM with Azure Log Analytics, a part of Microsoft’s cloud-based Operations Management Suite. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to monitor web applications and Azure resources using SCOM 2016. [Read more…]
