1. Is iQ able to display alerts that are fired by Azure Monitor?
Yes, our Azure insights integration does this. Object data and alert data comes into iQ. Please note that it is possible to see the raw properties of alerts in iQ and there is also a go to source option to actually go into Azure itself once you drill down into the alert. You can also look at the related component taking you to the object itself.
2. How does iQ deal with Azure VM’s that are shut down on purpose? Is there maintenance mode available for those cases?
Yes. When an Azure VM is shut down, the state is considered to be de-allocated and the related service or component appears as grey. In iQ, you can put a group or service into maintenance. Doing this turns off notifications coming from our system, however it does not turn off notifications coming from target systems. It is also worth noting that if things are in maintenance mode within the underlying system, we show it as grey as we are not receiving any data.
