Azure Functions is a serverless compute service in Microsoft Azure, enabling event-triggered code execution without manual infrastructure management. Supporting various programming languages, it scales dynamically, responding to demand while seamlessly integrating with Azure services.

However, the downsides of Azure Monitor for Azure Functions monitoring are:

  • Complexity to set up and configure correctly, especially for users who are new to the platform.
  • Increase in cost depending on the monitoring required for the number of resources.
  • Customize monitoring configurations that require a deeper understanding of the monitoring architecture.
  • Configuring cross-resource queries or aggregating data across various components, which can be more complex to set up.
  • Setting up not properly tuned alerts can lead to alert fatigue, where you receive an overwhelming number of alerts, making it hard to identify critical issues.

To overcome all the above challenges and monitor your Azure Function seamlessly, Micheal Stephenson, Microsoft MVP, is joining us and taking the session on best practices and robust capabilities designed to elevate your experience in managing and monitoring Azure Functions solutions.
