Azure Traffic Manager Get an Update: Traffic View and Real User Measurements
Azure Traffic Manager, a solution for monitoring the Microsoft cloud network, which is used to optimize connections to services for end users, has received a couple of new features in the “general availability” (GA) phase, Microsoft announced this week.
A new “Traffic View” added to the Azure Traffic Manager adds a dashboard view with a heat map for end users, demonstrating global traffic patterns. Traffic View records where users connect to Azure services, so they can help with potential latency problems on the network. The Traffic View function is now in GA and is considered ready for use in production environments.
Microsoft plans to charge for the use of Traffic View, starting May 1, 2018. The speed will be $ 2 per million processed data, according to the pricing page.
Another new addition to the Azure Traffic Manager for ensuring the availability of services is the function “Real User Measurements“. It is also available in preparation for GA production. Microsoft plans to charge for its use, starting May 1, 2018, at a price of $ 2 per million measurements.
