Is anyone currently using the Azure probe in UIM to monitor their Azure application? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm going to be doing a POC for UIM and Azure monitoring is a requirement.
We did a POC with it as well. I didn't really find it very useful in my case, it doesn't really seem to add that much more value. I didn't get a chance to properly see what "services" it supports as I didn't have much at hand in that subscription, but I imagine that kind of stuff would be the most valuable out of it. Most of the other stuff seemed to matter mostly if you don't already monitoring with agents, and even then it's not a substitute.
Can you share your impression of the product off-line and POC that you would be willing to share off-line? Are you using UIM or did you decide on another solution?

I don't have much in terms of a report that I can share, or much beyond what I wrote, really. I suppose where I want more is to monitor the "as a service" bits, other stuff that had to do with the platform as VM host seemed to include mostly storage performance and some cpu, mem and nw metrics. The documentation for the probe is very lacking (I left a comment in the wiki), so it's pretty hard to tell what it SHOULD be able to do.
We're already using UIM so this didn't affect our choice much.
If you're still interested in using the probe, check out the new 3.00 release. We're actively looking for feedback on what saas and paas components are most important to customers, so please get in touch with any particular gaps.
Also, the docs were updated for this release, so it should be clearer what the probe capabilities are
