Setup your data source endpoints in the easy-to-use WadGraphEs portal.
Graphite is a widely used tool to monitor systems. It has a very rich feature set, allowing you to make the most of your data.
We think monitoring Azure applications is too hard. The portal provides a few metrics but manipulating them is next to impossible and it's also very slow. Windows Azure Diagnostics allows you to at least record more data, such as performance counters and logs, but then there is no tool to actually read and visualize that data.
WadGraphEs solves these problems by reading diagnostics data out of your Azure subscriptions and presenting them in a useful format. Specifically, we read both portal metrics and Windows Azure Diagnostics and then feed those into a Graphite instance for great visualizations and manipulation capabilities. We store this data for 1 year, so you can detect trends, compare this week's data to previous weeks, etc. And we make it so easy that you can set it up in under half an hour.
