Azure Service Bus Queue Monitoring Integration

Azure Service Bus queues transmit messages to one or more competing customers on a first in, first out (FIFO) basis. Messages are typically received and processed in the order they were added to the queue by the receivers. Each message is also received and processed by only one message consumer.

You can now monitor your Service Bus queues with precise metrics, define thresholds, and automatically resolve issues with Site24x7's integration.

Setup and configuration

You can add an Azure Service Bus queue while adding a new monitor, or you can add it to an existing Azure monitor. Follow these steps to add the service.

The following metrics are collected:
