Monitoring Azure SQL Databases with Azure Monitor and Automation


 

Supervising Cloud Infrastructure is an important aspect of Cloud administration and Azure SQL Databases are no exception. This is something we are continuously improving at my company.

On-prem, DBAs often rely on well-established products but with Cloud-based architectures, often implemented through DevOps projects and developers, monitoring should be been redefined and include some new topics as:

1) Cloud service usage and fees observability
2) Metrics and events detection that could affect bottom line
3) Implementing a single platform to report all data that comes from different sources
4) Trigger rules with data if workload reaches over or drops
