Diagnostics in Azure Stream Analytics Jobs

Diagnostics in Azure Stream Analytics Jobs

When we work with Azure Stream Analytics, it’s sometimes difficult to do troubleshooting when there is a problem. These week I noticed (maybe it’s there already for a long time) the Diagnostic Diagram in the (new) Azure Portal in an Azure Stream Analytics Job. See below:

After selecting the diagram, you get a great overview what is happening in the Streaming Job. When you are troubleshooting it’s sometimes really difficult to see what is happing in the job:

After selecting a query for example, you see directly the query:

This is a great first step to do better diagnostics on an Azure Streaming Job. I like to see the following also:

  • Wondering if we starting and stopping the job will be much faster then now. It takes now a lot of time, starting, stopping, checking, starting and stopping
  • More debugging in the logs of Stream Analytics
  • Real-time logs in the Azure Portal of running Stream Analytics Jobs

In the next episode I will talk about the debugging to Azure Storage that is currently available.
