Leave Feedback


Application Insights, a feature of Azure Monitor, is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service for web developers on multiple platforms.

Application Insights is used to monitor your live web application. Characteristics include:

  • Automatic detection of performance anomalies.
  • Powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues and to understand what users actually do with your app.
  • Designed to help you continuously improve performance and usability.
  • Works for apps on a wide variety of platforms including .NET, Node.js and Java EE, hosted on-premises, hybrid, or any public cloud.
  • Integrates with your DevOps process, and has connection points to a variety of development tools.
  • Monitors and analyzes telemetry from mobile apps by integrating with Visual Studio App Center.


To set up the OpsRamp Azure integration and discover the Azure service, go to Azure Integration Discovery Profile and select Application Insights.
