Key concepts

PATROL for Microsoft Azure monitors services that are provided by Microsoft Azure for instance availability. It reports and monitors availability and performance across critical areas of Azure Services. It issues visual warnings and alarms when thresholds are exceeded, allowing easy identification of problem areas. It enables the event-based triggering of automatic user-supplied recovery or intervention actions.
