"End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us.""It does everything we wanted it to do.""The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features.

Cons
"They need to work on a more hybrid deployment that will allow us to monitor local on-premise deployments and connect to different systems. I would like to see more integration.""They can simplify the overall complexity since you have multiple data sources in the cloud for monitoring. It's quite simple, but there are so many portals. It takes time to work with it. If they could simplify the user configuration, that would be good.""n comparison to New Relic, which I've used before, it's a bit more complicated. It's not as easy to use. It also took some time to get it working. The implementation needs to be simpler.""As a younger product it still has room for feature improvement and enhancement.""The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring.""When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible.""I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now.""Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."

More Azure Monitor Cons »

"The deployment process could be improved.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""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.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""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.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
