The Application Insights team has released a new agent for Application Performance Management scenarios. This updated agent is version 7.1.11196.0 and is available here. If you are already using version 7.1.11115.0 then upgrading to this agent can be done by uninstalling the old one and then installing the newer version (for Azure Cloud Services the new agent version will be updated when the role is recycled next). If you are using a version before 7.1.11115.0 then follow the instructions here. Here is a description of the changes:
I am trying to monitor my WCF service for performance and exceptions and came across MS Monitoring agent. I see you can filter instrumentation to specified modules but it will have an adverse affect on the application. Is there a way to do monitoring without any impact ? What are the best strategies and tools for production environment ?
@HSN - monitoring should have little to no impact - our goal is <2-5% CPU. That said it would be good to test in an environment before you deploy in production.
Is this the same as the AppFabric monitoring ?
