What’s New in #Microsoft Azure DevTest LABs and More #Azure #DevOps #Docker #Containers #Cloud

Azure DevTest Labs is a service that helps developers and testers quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test the latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts. Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Labs to provision on-demand environments. Scale up your load testing by provisioning multiple test agents, and create pre-provisioned environments for training and demos.

Here you see my Azure TestLAB and I will add a Docker artifact to my Running VM

JamesTestLAB

Here you find the Getting Started Documentation

In your TestLAB you can work with RBAC

Here you see the Roles in Azure DevTest LAB.

In my JamesTestLAB I have a Container01 with Windows Server 2016 with Container running.

Via the Marketplace for Artifacts, I select the Docker for Windows Server 2016 artifact 😉

#Microsoft #Azure Application Analytics for #Docker #Container Apps #DevOps #Cloud #MSOMS


Microsoft Azure Application Analytics for Docker Container Apps

Docker Pull Microsoft/applicationinsights

How to use this Image

  1. Obtain the instrumentation key of your Application Insights resource. (Look in the Essentials drop-down.) If you don’t have a resource, create a new one.
  2. Run the following command, replacing %app_ikey% with your instrumentation key:
    docker run -v /var/run/docker.sock:/docker.sock -d microsoft/applicationinsights ikey=%app_ikey%
  3. If your application is instrumented with the Application Insights SDK for Java, add the following line into the ApplicationInsights.xml file in your project, under the <TelemetryInitializers> element:<Add type=”com.microsoft.applicationinsights.extensibility.initializer.docker.DockerContextInitializer”/>

Note: Only a single container is required per Docker host. If your application is deployed on multiple Docker hosts, then create an instance of this image on every host.

Here you find more information on Docker HUB

Docker images

In Microsoft Azure you Create a New Application Insights environment :

Here you find  more information about to Create an Application Insights resource

I have added my Docker for Windows Containers to Azure Application Insights :

Monitor Docker applications in Application Insights

Here you See my two Running Docker for Windows Containers

You can change the Timelines for a better View

You can open Analytics and make your own queries on your Container App

Enjoy #Analytics  😉
