Visual Studio Online Application Insights solves the age-old problem of collecting enough data to enable developers to diagnose their issues but not so much as to impact production capacity. In this video, we'll focus on setting up Application Insights and Microsoft Monitoring Agent in connected scenarios. In these scenarios, Application Insights will monitor event data, analyze it for categories of issues, display (down to the specific line of code) the source of the issue, monitor memory usage for leak detection and output memory snapshots and IntelliTrace logs that can be analyzed using Visual Studio 2013.
On April 25, 2015, Nepal experienced a 7.8 magnitude earthquake—the largest in 80 years. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partnered with Microsoft to scale their efforts, drive collaboration, and ensure aid and relief efforts are effective. Front-line responders in Nepal are using the Microsoft cloud to store and process data, helping to obtain needed insights and maximize impact. And a joint poverty alleviation initiative is using the cloud to collaborate with other partner organizations, providing support to over 13,000 micro-enterprises and helping them to get businesses back on their feet.
