Step by Step walk through of getting Application Insights Up and running
I am continually amazed the lengths that our MVPS go out of their way to help the community. At the last MVP summit one of the System Center MVPs, Kevin Greene, heard from his peers that there wasn’t a great walk through for getting stared with Application Insights. Rather than waiting for us he rolled up his sleeves and did his own!…Great job and a HUGE thank you Kevin!
If you are getting started with Application Insights i highly recommend taking a look at his series….
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 1 – Getting Started
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 2 – Building A Demo Server
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 3 – Deploying A Demo Web Application
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 4 – Monitoring Availability
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 5 – Monitoring Performance & Using Diagnostics
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 6 – Monitoring Usage
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 7 – Working with Dashboards
Application Insights Deep Dive Part 8 – Alerting & Administration
Kevin asked me to look for any issues and the only thing i found is the fact the next version of the Visual Studio Tools for Application Insights will add the JS block in for you. If you demo Application Insights to user groups etc the only other thing i would add is the new cloud based load test is a great way of getting those huge spikes he has in his graphs
Again Great Job Kevin!
