Application insights - telemetry for console applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Azure webjobs and Azure batch service. Those are essentially console applications. What all can i log and track from console applications using Application insights? Like perf counters, call stack trace, memory utilization, CPU, GC etc? Is it possible to set up an alert based on custom events?

  • Hello Haripraghash,

    There is an instruction here for desktop and windows services which is close to what you are trying to achieve.

    To collect perfcounters with SDK you would need to ensure that the service/app account is added to Performance Monitor Users group on the machine.

    It's not yet possible to setup alerts on the custom events but they usually can be replaced with the custom metric to use for alerts.
