Making sense of application logs and metrics has been a challenge at Tailwind Traders. Some of the most common questions getting asked within the company are: 'How do we know what we're looking for? Do we look at logs? Metrics? Both?' Using Azure Application Insights helps Tailwind Traders elevate their application logs to something a bit more powerful: telemetry. In session, you’ll learn how the team wired up Azure Application Insights to their public-facing website and fixed a slow-loading home page. Then we expand this concept of telemetry to determine why Tailwind Traders’ bill for Azure Cosmos DB is higher than they expect. Finally, we’ll look into capacity planning and scale with powerful yet easy services like Azure Front Door.
