Monitoring Azure Service Bus (SB) comes with its own set of challenges, primarily due to the distributed nature of the service and the complexities involved in message processing and delivery. Some of the most common challenges associated with monitoring Azure SB include: 

Message Flow Monitoring: Tracking the flow of messages through various queues or topics, including understanding where bottlenecks might occur or where messages might be delayed. 

Latency Monitoring: Ensuring that messages are being processed within acceptable time frames.

Distributed transaction tracing (DTT) is a way of following the progress of message requests as they permeate through distributed cloud environments. Tracing the transactions as they make their way through many different layers of the application stack, such as from Kafka to ActiveMQ to MQ or any similar platform, is achieved by tagging the message request with a unique identifier that allows it to be followed.

When businesses look at how best to understand the performance levels of their platforms, some of the best incident management metrics to look at are Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR). These two measurements will give an excellent indication of the health and speed of the system, as well as the ability of the platform to take care of any anomalies that have been detected or to flag them up for others to take action to resolve them.
