We’re happy to introduce two enhancements to Smart Detection in Application Insights, which automatically notifies you if your live web app shows performance issues. You will now get an automatic notification if your live web app dependencies slow down - for example, a database or REST API that your app calls. And you can click through from Smart Detection details to the profiler trace of an operation where the problem has occurred.
Smart Detection now detects degradation in duration of dependency calls. Web applications and modern services in general often rely on external services and platforms to power key scenarios. For those applications dependency calls, duration is a key factor in the overall application performance. Smart Detection will automatically notify you about changes in dependency duration compared to its historical performance. Supported for all dependency calls types.
