Health Checks

The Azure SQL Elastic Pool sensor will conduct custom health checks and execute them every minute. If the checks fail for at least one minute, an issue will be raised to inform the user.

Health Description
eDTU The total eDTU utilization for Azure SQL Elastic Pool is getting closer to max eDTU limit. Warning limit is at 75% and the critical limit is at 85% of the eDTU utilization


Metrics are pulled every minute, which is the resolution Azure provides for monitoring of these services.
