Azure Windows VM Scale Set

Monitor, heal and scale Azure Windows Virtual Machine Scale Set

Azure VM Scale Set is a resource that allows users to effectively autoscale their VMs. Using VMSS, users can deploy sets of Windows virtual machines onto Microsoft Azure, with every VM having the identical configuration.


Track the statuses of the individual Virtual Machines in the scale set and Azure Management operations. Check and alert on specific entries in the event logs.


Track a wide range of performance metrics. Get alerted whenever metric values get out of the expected range, and resolve issues before failures occur.


Based on the observations and analysis of data gathered, Powershell scripts can be executed against your Virtual Machines to remediate issues that may be detected.

What is Azure Windows VM Scale Set?

Netreo’s “Microsoft Azure Windows VM Scale Set” module gives your IT organization complete visibility into the Microsoft Azure VMs and applications running in them. Save on Azure costs by automatically shutting down VMs when they’re not needed and auto-scale based on the collected metrics.

Drive Efficiency

Enabling Microsoft Azure VM Scale Set in your deployment means one less tool engineers have to consult when troubleshooting issues in your IT Infrastructure.

Manage IT Spend

Ensure you’re dedicating the correct portion of your IT budget to productivity applications, and license utilization levels are in proportion with the size of your organization.

Improve SLAs

Allow the NOC team to isolate problems faster and properly route issues to the correct personnel, reducing MTTR and improving service levels provided to your end users.

End-to-End Visibility for Microsoft Azure Windows VMSS

Netreo collects a wide range of metrics for Azure Windows VM Scale Sets. In addition to performance data tracking underlying infrastructure, users can track information about individual VMs in the Scale Set, IIS performance counters, and more.

  • Track and alert on any performance counters (CPU, Memory, Disk, etc.)
  • Record valuable information from event logs
  • Monitor statuses of individual VMs

Microsoft Azure Windows VM Scale Sets Automation

Execute and auto-scale VM Scale Sets based on signals captured anywhere in the Azure environment, e.g. CPU and memory utilization, ASB queues lengths, etc.

  • Shut down and start VM Scale Sets according to a schedule
  • Automatically auto-scale VM Scale Sets based on custom criteria
  • Perform daily reboots of individual VMs in the Scale Set
