So currently I am using the Log analytics agent to monitor connection between a non azure endpoint and an azure server. I'm looking at the documentation for connection monitor and it isn't entirely clear to me that I can use the Azure Monitoring Agent. Even when I go into the Connection monitor and select to add an endpoint that is not part of azure, the only options are endpoints with ARC, and MMO (Microsoft Monitoring Agent or Log Analytics Agent) I don't even see an option to select the Azure monitoring agent. Is it possible to monitor an HTTP or TCP connectivity between an on prem workstation and an azure server using the new Azure Monitoring agent?

    @18203024, thank you for posting this question on Microsoft Q&A.

    Connection monitor does support Azure Monitor Agent for endpoint monitoring. Please review the steps available in the following document for more details - Monitor network connectivity using Azure Monitor agent with connection monitor

    Furthermore, as you are using LA agent and under process to evaluate/migrate to AMA, the following document will help you with the step-by-step guide for the migration - Migrate to Azure Monitor Agent from Log Analytics agent. For specific features which were supported with log analytics agent, review the Migrate additional services and features link which contains table with information about migrating those features to Azure Monitor Agent (AMA).

    Hope this helps.
