Azure monitor for virtual machines RDP – How we do it

by | Jan 11, 2021

Wondering how to monitor virtual machines RDP using Azure? Take a look at this blog.

Here at Bobcares, we have seen several such Azure related queries as part of our Server Management Services for web hosts and online service providers.

Today, we’ll take a look at how to monitor virtual machines RDP using Azure.


How to Monitor Virtual machines RDP in Azure Management Portal

Now let’s take a look at how our Support Engineers monitor the VM in Azure.

  1. First, we login to the Azure Management Portal.
  2. Next, we go to Virtual Machine.
  3. After that, we select the virtual machine we want to monitor.
  4. Then we select Monitor from the top menu.

As a result, we can see a page having 5 key terms i.e. CPU Percentage, Disk Read Bytes/Sec, Disk Write Bytes/sec, Network In, Network Out. Each line on the graph is in a different color which matches the color of the term.

Disk Read Bytes/Sec

Disk read byte/second measures the amount of data read every second on the disk. If the read operations are done more frequently on the disk, performance issues can be resolved using a faster disk.

Disk Write Bytes/sec

Similarly, disk write byte/sec measures the amount of data written every second. If the application needs writing large amount of data on the disk, a bigger disk can be chosen.

Network In

Monitoring the network traffic can be done by looking at the ‘network in’ figures in the ‘Monitor’ section. The network-in statistics can be in bytes or TCP segments received.

Network Out

Network-out statics tells about TCP segments sent per second.


Enable Diagnostics

In order to collect logs, we need to enable diagnostics. Here, Azure will collect logs and store in a storage account we specify.

Here are the steps that we follow to enable diagnostics.

  1. First, we switch to the ‘preview portal’.
  2. Next, we locate the ‘Virtual Machine (classic)’ in the left panel.
  3. After that, we select the Machine and ‘All Settings’.
  4. Then we scroll down and locate ‘Diagnostics’ and select it.
  5. We select ‘On’ in the next panel displayed on the right side. By default, it is set off.
  6. Since it uses a storage account to store the logs we will have to configure the setting for the storage account by clicking the ‘Storage account’ option available on the right side.
  7. We can also select or deselect the type of logs we want to keep.
