What is Azure Functions?
Azure Functions is a popular serverless compute function that is available in Microsoft Azure. Serverless functions help developers innovate faster, scale easier and reduce operational overhead, removing the burden of managing underlying infrastructure when updating and deploying code. Most enterprises use serverless functions as part of a broader hybrid environment, covering both cloud and traditional technologies.
Why do you need end-to-end monitoring for Azure Functions?
The short answer is to get full visibility into all tiers of your stack. Serverless computing introduces new monitoring challenges, particularly blind spots in dependencies and identifying issues, making it difficult to ensure the health of applications running on serverless technologies. Monitoring Azure Functions helps you to
- Optimize response time hotspots
- Optimize timing hotspots
- Simplify error analytics
- Understand and optimize your architecture
