Published Mar 15 2021 11:37 PM 5,111 Views

Have you ever wondered if there is an option to limit the number of agents you need to deploy on your servers to allow for proper monitoring?


There is the Log Analytics Agent, the performance monitoring agent, the Desired State Configuration Agent, and many more...


What if I told you this is about to change?


Well, it is. So read on and find out what's in store for you.


The upcoming Azure Monitor Agent (AMA) currently in preview, will orchestrate the collection of monitoring data from the guest operating system of your server and VMs and deliver it to Azure Monitor.  It will simplify the way you deploy and configure the afore mentioned collection while it enables new capabitities not available with the current set of monitoring agents.


Join Pierre Roman and Shayoni Seth (Senior Program Manager on the Azure Monitor Agent team) as they discuss the upcoming Azure Manager Agent changes.
