How to enable Azure Enhanced Monitoring on Linux VM
This is an instruction about how to enable Azure Enhanced Monitoring on Azure Linux VM.
Prepare your develop machine
First of all, you need to prepare your develop machine to manipulate Linux VM on Azure. We have provided a script to automate this process. The script will install nodejs, npm and azure-cli on your develop machine. It will also install a nodejs package for configuring Azure Enhanced Monitoring Extension. Currently, the script supports Ubuntu, CentOS, SUSE etc. If you want to use other Linux distribution as your develop machine, you may need to install nodejs manually.
curl -LO https://github.com/Azure/azure-linux-extensions/releases/download/azure-enhanced-monitor-1.0-alpha2/install.sh sudo sh install.sh
Configure Azure Enhanced Monitoring
After previous step, you should be able to use the command
setaem. You could check this by running the following commands.
sudo setaem -h sudo setaem -v
Then, you need to configure your Azure Account with the following command.
#If you are using an org. id. sudo azure login -u <user_name>
sudo azure account import <publish_settings_file>
Now, you should be able to use the following command to enable Azure Enhanced Monitoring on your Azure Linux VM.
sudo setaem <service_name> <vm_name>
#If service name is the same with vm. sudo setaem <vm_name>
Build c lib for reading performance counters
We also provided a lib written in c for reading performance counters.
curl -LO https://github.com/Azure/azure-linux-extensions/releases/download/azure-enhanced-monitor-1.0-alpha2/clib.tar.gz tar zxf clib.tar.gz cd clib make
You could also use
sudo make install to install the lib or
make test to run some check on your build.
