Azure Monitor Alerts

Azure Monitor alerts help us find issues within our infrastructure setup or in our applications using the monitoring tools in Azure Monitor. These alerts can help us identify and address issues even before the users of our system notice them.

Alert rules are a combination of some components. These components are as follows:

  • Resource: This is a monitored component and is our target resource. The resource we monitor can be a storage account, VMs, or an Azure App Service resource.

  • Signals: These signals are emitted by our monitored resource and are emitted as per our configurations. These signals can be metrics, Application Insights logs, and so on.

  • Condition: This is a bridge connecting resources with signals. Signals are emitted by the resources based on the configuration condition, e.g., sending an email alert if the “CPU consumption > 70%” condition is met.
