AppInsight applications provide a level of detail and expert knowledge far beyond what a simple template can provide, allowing you to monitor virtually every aspect of the assigned application.

Like any unassigned application in SAM, AppInsight applications are considered templates until applied. Until applied, you can review the AppInsight templates in the Application Monitor Templates collection.

Once applied to a node, AppInsight templates become monitored as applications. AppInsight monitoring includes multiple component monitors and performance counters.

Currently, SAM offers three different AppInsight applications:


AppInsight applications cannot be assigned to groups (in batch) due to the nature of the AppInsight template requirements. All AppInsight templates offer an auto-configuration option to deploy and configure WinRm in the background for you (for each respective node).
