Calling Application Insights API using Powershell
If you have an application, instrumenting it with something like Application Insights to emit useful data is something I cannot espouse the benefits of enough. As a service, however, Application Insights can offer other benefits, such as Availability Tests to tell you if the application is accessible to your users.
The default approach to availability tests is to create cloud-based probes that regularly call your application from different regions of the globe to make sure it responds and assess how long those responses take.
