Improving your website with Application Insights

Application Insights Logo

TL;DR I helped write a series of SSW rules on setting up Application Insights that you can follow to improve the monitoring of your website.

One of my favourite Azure offerings is Application Insights. I think it is an extremely simple thing that should be added to every website you manage. It is free for basic usage and only takes a couple of minutes to set up.

I’ve been adding App Insights to a number of SSW websites (such as SSW.com.auSSWTimepro.com and SSWLinkAuditor.com). Since being added, App Insights has been helping us to keep on top of our application metrics and unhandled exceptions.

Because I think App Insights is a great product and want more people to get usage out of it, I helped write a series of series of rules detailing the hows and whys of Application Insights. My favourites are:

There are many more listed up there but those are just my getting started favourites. Check the rules out and start improving the monitoring of your application’s health.
