A: If you are monitoring Azure Linux VMs thru CloudMonix's integration with Azure Diagnostics (currently this is the only option) and are not seeing any data for your Linux VM on the CloudMonix dashboards there is likely an issue with Azure Diagnostics on the monitored VM.  The following steps may help clear up the issue

  • Disable the VM from being monitored by CloudMonix
  • Navigate to Azure Portal and remove Azure Diagnostics extension
  • Ensure Microsoft's Linux agent is removed from your Linux box
    sudo -i
    systemctl stop waagent
    yum remove WALinuxAgent scx omi apache-cimprov -y
    mv /var/lib/waagent /var/lib/waagent.old
  • Enable monitoring of the VM in CloudMonix again (CloudMonix will ask Azure to install the extension again)
