Windows Azure Diagnostics is a new feature in November release of Windows Azure Tools and SDK, and gives developers ability to collect and store a variety of diagnostics data in a highly configurable way. “There’re a number of diagnostic scenarios that go beyond simple logging. Here’re some some scenarios, e.g. Detecting and troubleshooting problems, Performance measurement, Analytics and QoS, Capacity planning, and more… Based on feedback we received we wanted to keep simplicity of initial logging API but enhance feature to give users more diagnostic data about their service and to give users more control of their diagnostic data. The November 2009 marks our first initial release of the Diagnostics feature,” Sumit said. You can read the Windows Azure Diagnostics documentation on MSDN.
