Collecting usage telemetry of your Orchard 1 DotNest sites with Azure Application Insights
Do you want to know how your Orchard 1 DotNest sites perform? How fast they are, who your users are, whether there are any client-side errors? Among others this is what Azure Application Insights can answer: it's an application telemetry service that can collect various data from your application and present you in a useful form.
To use AI:
- Create a Microsoft Azure account and create an AI account in it as described on the Azure website. Both are free!
- Retrieve your AI instrumentation key from the Azure Portal and configure it on your site's admin (under Settings/Azure Application Insights).
- That's it! Telemetry data will now be collected for your site.
This will give you insights in your site's usage, including:
- How many people are visiting your site, where from, with which browser, etc.
- How fast is your site.
