Monitor the availability and performance of your Azure Load Balancer. Identify, troubleshoot, and resolve performance issues instantly.
With Applications Manager's Azure Load Balancer monitoring, you can:
With Applications Manager, get an overall view of the Standard Load Balancer performance at a single glance. You can become aware of critical Azure LB metrics such as Data Path Availability, Health Probe Status, and SNAT Connection Count.
Configure alerts to get notified when data path availability falls to zero as this might mean that all the VMs in the associated backend pool are being probed. Monitor Azure Load Balancer's health probe status and ensure that it doesn't match user defined probed-up percentage of total pool size value to prevent VM shortages that may lead to unserved traffic.
With Applications Manager's Azure Load balancer monitor, gain insights into various front-end IP related metrics. Keep a close eye on the number of SNAT ports used and allocated to understand application dependency on outbound originated flows. Configure alarms to get notified when the values go beyond a set threshold.
Track the number of SYN packets received to get to know how many TCP connection attempts were made.
You can also view the top 5 frontend IP addresses by SNAT connection count to get an overview of the performance at a single glance.
Applications Manager's Azure LB monitoring tool also gives you extensive details about critical backend metrics. Monitor the backend health probe status to get to know the health of your application through the load balancer's perspective using the health probe configuration.
Track the number of failed SNAT connections and troubleshoot issues before it can affect application performance.
You can also gain extensive insights into the IP configurations of your Azure Load Balancer. Get to know the provisioning state of the IPs along with their allocation methods.
With comprehensive reporting capabilities, gather and visualize real-time data about Azure Load Balancer performance for a specified period. Analyze the reports to understand performance trends. Monitoring Azure Load Balancer using Applications Manager lets you leverage machine learning techniques to forecast performance.

Azure Load Balancer is a load balancer by Azure that facilitates distribution of inbound flows from the front end to the backend pool instances according to previously configured load-balancing rules and health probes.
To ensure hassle-free inbound flow distribution and to prevent issues that might affect the applications that rely on the Azure Load Balancer, it is important to employ a monitoring tool. This will not only help you collect critical Azure Load Balancer performance metrics, but will also help you optimize their performance.
Applications Manager uses service APIs and Azure Monitor APIs to fetch Load Balancer configuration and performance metrics.
Each Load Balancer is considered as a separate license.
