I have a App Service in an App Service plan. I have created a scale out for the web app, it is Manual Scale out configured to 4 instances.
How can i capture or retrieve how much traffic is hitting the web app instances and also how much traffic is being redirected to the scaled out instances ?

    @Karen Thanks for your comment. Application Insights is a feature of Azure Monitor which you can use to monitor Request rates, dependency , page views and several others for your azure web app. After enabling Application Insights, you can query for traffic data for each cloud instance of web app. For instance, if you want to view the number of requests that the has been redirected to cloud instance of the Azure Web app, below kusto query will help in achieving the requirement.
