Pros
"One of the most useful aspects of this solution is the out-of-the-box functionality on all areas, especially on Application Insights, zero instrumentation, and artificial intelligence for event correlation.""Azure Monitor is very stable.""Azure Monitor is useful because of the useful application insights and telemetry, such as metrics and logs.""The most valuable features of Azure Monitor are the login analytics workspace and we can write any kind of custom queries in order to receive the data that is inserted into the login analytics workspace, diagnostic settings, et cetera.""The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use.""The feature that I found most valuable in Azure Monitor is its monitoring abilities. With Azure Monitor, you are able to monitor all of your cloud resources across multiple subscriptions in one dashboard and create solution-specific alerts that can trigger an email to the team responsible for that specific solution.""Data exporting is easy, and this tool works seamlessly with other solutions. It's a stable and low-priced solution.""Provides an overview and high-level information."

Cons
"There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier.""Setting up this solution is complex. It's also missing the functionality of assigning alerts.""Azure Monitor could improve the visualization aspect and integrate better with other third-party services.""Azure Monitor could improve network performance monitoring and make it more advanced.""This solution could be improved with more out-of-the-box functionalities and artificial intelligence to complete event correlation.""In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs.""This solution has fewer features than some of its competitors, so adding more features to it would make it better.""I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."

More Azure Monitor Cons →

"The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""I haven't come across any features that are lacking.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be.""New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
