This preview shows page 20 - 23 out of 30 pages.

Once the initial replication is complete, you can run a Test failover from one Azure region to another. Using the Recovery Plans to describe the scope of Planned, Unplanned and Test Failovers . You can find all the scenarios in the ASR Documentation . Do check it out. Storage Monitoring - Need Applications that are deployed in PaaS or IaaS can use multiple storage options available, such as Azure Storage Tables, Blobs, Queues, or Files , in addition to relational and document Databases. These storages must be analyzed or monitored for any issues, requests and usage patterns so that the business is not affected in any manner. Diagnosing and troubleshooting the distributed application is more complex in the cloud environment than in On-Premises. In Azure Azure Storage Analytics performs and provide metrics data for a storage account . You can also set alerts for any undesired action in the storage account. In this topic, you will explore the basics of storage monitoring briefly. Storage Analytics For new storage accounts, Analytics metrics are activated by default. The aggregated data for logging is stored in blobs and for metrics, it is stored in tables . Storage Analytics has a 20TB limit on the amount of stored data. Azure Storage Analytics performs and provides metrics data for a storage account which is,
o Metrics for all storage services . o Logs for blobs, queues, and tables . You can configure monitoring via the Azure portal or Windows PowerShell , or Programmatically the storage client libraries . To download and store the metrics for a long-term analysis, it can be done by using Storage tools or programmatically only. Storage Metrics When one creates a new storage account, Storage Metrics is enabled by default. There are two types of metrics: Aggregate Collects metrics such as ingress/egress, availability, latency, and success percentage. These metrics are aggregated for the blob, queue, table, and file services. Per API In addition to the aggregate metrics, collects the same set of metrics for each storage operation in the Azure Storage service API. Metrics Configuration Configure monitoring for a storage account In Portal, open the dashboard of the Storage Account that you want to configure monitoring. Select Diagnostics in the MONITORING section of the menu blade. Select the type of metrics data for each service that you wish to monitor, and the retention policy for the data. You can also disable monitoring as well. When you finish the monitoring configuration, select Save . You can also enable the metrics through PowerShell and Azure CLI programmatically .
Metrics Chart Once you configured the monitoring, Storage Analytic Service starts collecting the Data that takes up to one hour for the data to appear in its Charts as illustrated. Hourly Storage metrics are stored with table names as $MetricsHourPrimaryTransactionsBlob and minute metrics as $MetricsMinutePrimaryTransactionsBlob in a similar fashion for Files,Queue,Tables .
