[SOLVED] Performance Considerations of Microsoft Application Insights?

Issue

I couldn’t find any information about an async implementation of application Insights, specifically the TelemetryClient for Microsoft.ApplicationInsights Nuget.

And by that I mean a full implementation from the exposed methods down to the actual http request sent to the service, not just a wrapper.

I guess it’d make sense for performance considerations, especially when coding a ASP.NET MVC website. Is that on the roadmap? Did I miss anything?

Thanks for your help!

Solution

The article about the application insights overview has a section What’s the overhead?

which describes the performance gap produced by application insights as following:

The impact on your app’s performance is very small. Tracking calls are non-blocking, and are batched and sent in a separate thread.

So you don’t have to consider about performance issues caused by application insights.
