Happy Learning with your online LAB
Microsoft System Center Management Pack (Community Technology Preview) for SQL Server vNext Replication enables the monitoring of Replication as a set of technologies for copying and distributing data and database objects from one database to another and then synchronizing between the databases to maintain consistency.
Here you can download the System Center MP for SQL Server vNext Replication including documentation.

Service Map in #MSOMS automatically builds a common reference map of dependencies across your servers, processes, and third-party services. It discovers and maps all TCP dependencies, identifying surprise connections, remote third-party systems you depend on, and dependencies to traditional dark areas of your network such as Active Directory. Service Map discovers failed network connections that your managed systems are attempting to make, helping you identify potential server misconfiguration, service outages, and network issues.

Machine Changes on HybridCloud01 Server
You now can see that the Previous Service State Running is changed in Stopped.
When you go more in details and look at the log Search in this event :
When this event is important to you you can make an OMS Alert on this Change :
With OMS Alert you can take actions like :
With Microsoft OMS Runbooks you can make Automation solutions for Hybrid IT Events.

More information about using Awesome Service Map solution in Operations Management Suite (OMS) you can find here
Configuring Service Map solution in Operations Management Suite (OMS)
Service Map gets its data from the Microsoft Dependency Agent. The Dependency Agent is dependent on the OMS Agent for its connections to OMS. This means that a server must have the OMS Agent installed and configured first, and then the Dependency Agent can be installed. The following table describes the connected sources that are supported by the Service Map solution.

I like Microsoft OMS Service Map a lot because you can see the relations between Servers, Services, Applications in a Hybrid IT environment and
get proactive alerts to take action to keep your Hybrid Datacenters Healthy 🙂
Management Pack Scope
The Management Pack for Microsoft Azure enables you to monitor the availability and performance of Azure resources that are running on Microsoft Azure. The management pack runs on a specified server pool, and then uses Microsoft Azure REST APIs to remotely discover and collect performance information about the specified Microsoft Azure resources.
This management pack focuses on the collection of performance metrics made available by Azure Services that use Azure Resource Manager.
Azure Active Directory is used for authenticating Azure REST API calls.
This management pack queries Azure REST APIs to enumerate the resources running in an Azure subscription and the performance metrics available for each resource.
Virtual machines, web roles, and worker roles can store events and performance counters into Azure table storage by means of Azure diagnostics. If these resources are configured to use Azure diagnostics, this Management Pack can collect these events and performance counters.
Examples of services that can be discovered, and whether performance counters are available for collection, are presented in the table below.
|Cloud Service (web and worker roles)||Yes||Yes|
|DocumentDB||Yes||No||Metrics are not available in the Add Monitoring wizard|
|Media Services||Yes||No||Uses Service Management APIs|
|Mobile Services||Yes||Yes||Uses Service Management APIs|
|Traffic Manager||Yes||No||Uses Service Management APIs|
|Virtual Machines||Yes||Yes||Virtual machines also appear as role instances for Cloud Services|
Learn how to use Log Analytics in the Operations Management Suite to collect and analyze data generated by resources in your cloud and on-premises environments. Tutorials and other documentation show you how to get real-time insights across your workloads and servers regardless of physical location
