Monitoring on-premises Cisco devices on Azure

Level 1

Has anyone tried to setup the Azure monitoring agent to on-premises Cisco devices so that they can be monitored on Azure?

Please kindly let me know the procedure/necessary configuration if anyone has done this successfully.

the Azure Monitoring Agent is designed to monitor Azure servers and on-premises server and desktops. Reference:

It is not a general purpose devices monitoring tool and thus not suitable for monitoring Cisco devices.

Thank you very much for the information!

What would be the best solution for monitoring on-premises Cisco devices?
Would it be ThousandEyes?

ThousandEyes can monitor performance but is not a general purpose network monitoring tool. The current Cisco offering in that category would be Catalyst Center (formerly known as DNA Center or DNA-C).

However if you only need basic network monitoring you can use products such as PRTG or SolarWinds NPM (naming just a few among many).

Thank you very much for the information!
