What are the limitations in monitoring Azure SQL database? Whether all the alerts present in an on-premise instance can be monitored for a Azure SQL database? Or is there a limitation in the metrics monitored?
The following link shows you the various counters that are not available in cloud environments (RDS and Azure SQL Database).http://wiki.idera.com/display/SQLDM/Metric+availability+for+instances+hosted+on+the+cloud
Unfortunately, the link doesn't tell you which metric SQLDM is able to alert upon. You'll have to use the list in the link above and use it as a guide to determine which metrics in SQLDM should be disabled.
