Robust Azure Monitoring with TrueSight Pulse
Take control of Azure monitoring with TrueSight Pulse. Pulse gives you a programmatic alternative to the Azure Portal GUI for monitoring, visualizing and alerting on Azure metrics in a unified view with the rest of your IT infrastructure.
Microsoft provides the ability to set up monitoring for Azure services and billing in the Azure Portal. You must manually or programmatically configure each instance, including services monitored, alerts, alarms, etc. By default you get 1-minute resolution and dashboards with limited flexibility on metric visualization, alarms and data. While in the public preview, monitoring in Azure is free but that is subject to change. Azure monitoring through the Azure Portal has another limitation – it only works for Azure. You cannot view other cloud or on-premise infrastructure in Azure Portal dashboards, which means you have yet another monitoring tool to deal with.
TrueSight Pulse frees you from those Azure Portal limitations by giving you real-time, one-second monitoring of virtual machines and containers with no additional fees for dashboard, metrics or alarms. Pulse can also leverage the Azure metrics you already have and integrate them into a unified dashboard with your other infrastructure and applications. This makes for more robust Azure monitoring than what you get with Azure Portal monitoring alone.
And we do it seamlessly: Configure TrueSight Pulse as an application in the Azure Portal, obtain the relevant Azure IDs (client, secret and tenant) and then use those to set up integration in Pulse. Pulse will automatically discover all of your Azure services and resources, start monitoring, set some key metric alarms and visualize the data in real-time graphs. No installation or configuration – all of the work is done by TrueSight Pulse and the whole process takes seconds. Once set up, you’ll also be free to collaborate and share dashboards with anyone. Yet more good reasons to make your Azure monitoring more robust with TrueSight Pulse!
How it works
TrueSight Pulse for Azure Monitoring is Easy
1Add Pulse as an application in Azure Portal
Configure Pulse as an app in your Azure Portal, assign permissions and generate the necessary Azure IDs (client, secret and tenant). Here’s a short video that walks you through the process.

No billing information required. Give us some basic contact info and you’re good to go.
3Enter your Azure credentials in Pulse
After sign up, select “Azure” as a source and enter your Azure credentials (Client, Tenant & Secret keys). Once linked with your Azure account, TrueSight Pulse will dynamically discover all of your Azure services and generate dashboards and threshold alarms. Just look for dashboards starting with “Azure” in the dropdown list.
