Modern enterprise IT infrastructures are becoming increasingly difficult to manage as the deployment of new services and applications continues to grow. Applications tend to rely on many other services and applications to function, which often span many server and network components. In order to fully understand the performance and availability of any particular application, a complete picture of all dependent services and applications is needed. Without this picture, troubleshooting and root cause analysis are long, tedious, and typically involve many manual steps and processes.
Using Service Map
Service Map is an Azure management solution that automatically discovers and builds a common reference map of dependencies across servers, processes, and third-party services in real-time. Using Service Map, IT organizations have access to the complete picture of application and system dependencies across Windows and Linux, whether running in an on-premise, pure cloud, or hybrid environment.
