APM for Azure Functions Node and Python

Hi Everyone,

I know this has been asked before but the answers are out dated and I wanted to know if there are any updates on the newrelic side.

I have a couple of functions written in js (node) and python. I did create a service connection to monitor the infrastructure but I havent found any documentation about installing APM on azure functions.

Any updates ?

Hi @mightee_pirate

I believe we have no APM agent support for Azure Functions at the moment. We do have the Azure Functions Monitoring integration which may help get you some of the metrics you are looking for:

Hi, Any update on this? I was hoping to use the the Apollo server plugin mentioned here: https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/agents/nodejs-agent/extend-your-instrumentation/apollo-server-plugin-nodejs

Any Idea if this will work. I have tried it myself but the diagnostic tool flags that it is unsupported and although I get no errors I cannot see any graphql transactions being recorded, just standard node metrics

@frank.long Thank you for your patience. I checked and there isn’t a current update on the “APM agent support for Azure Functions”. Unsure abut the Apollo server plugin but maybe other community members will have insights to share.

I am also looking for a solution or work around to include distributed tracing of AzFunctions and Service Bus into my platform
