We discuss the Nuget package I developed to set the role name for each telemetry in a backend application.
In this article I wanted to cover another element that receives little coverage: how to do that for...
Let’s look at a concrete problem:
- I have containers deployed in AKS
- Those container log into custom files
- I want to analyse those logs using Azure Monitor (Log Analytics)
We’ll look at how to do that.
We leverage Azure Monitor for containers.
Custom logs in Log Analytics also is...

Since I have many micro-services, it isn’t practical to have an Application Insight resource per service. Given that those micro-services interact with each other and I want to monitor those interactions, it makes sense to get all telemetry in one place.
The issue with...
