Azure Functions provide a flexible, scalable, and serverless platform for building and deploying applications. By leveraging an automatic supervision and analysis tool that offers Azure Functions monitoring capabilities like ManageEngine Applications Manager, developers can focus on writing code that meets business requirements without worrying about faulty functions or unavailability of resources.
Azure Functions supports a wide range of triggers, such as HTTP requests, timers, message queues, and data changes in Azure services like Cosmos DB and Blob Storage, which makes event-driven workflows much easier to configure. Applications Manager's Azure function monitoring tool gives you vast information on network requests transpiring in any particular function. Details on the requests along with its respective status codes reveal whether the requests are processed successfully or result in errors. They're depicted in a graphical format on the monitor dashboard for an easier and quicker discernment, with an emphasis on the 4xx errors owing to their frequency of occurrence.
The key metrics to monitor in Azure Functions depend on your specific application, but some of the most important ones include, function execution count, function execution units, response times, HTTP server errors, HTTP 404 errors, and dependency errors in addition to resource usage. Monitoring resource usage helps identify resources that are scarcely used and may need to be scaled down. You can identify dependencies that are not reliable and may need to be replaced by keeping an eye on dependency errors.
Applications Manager's Azure Functions monitor also provides information about the application processes with insight into parameters such as connections, app queues, app domains, handles, I/O, etc.
