Hi @DhannaniAltaf-8571 ,

  1. I recommend using an Azure Monitor workbook (e.g. VM performance template), customize the counters that you need, use a threshold column rendering option, and make the workbook step pinnable to pin the visualisation to an Azure portal dashboard. See the average column in the below image as an example:

  2. We use a couple of approaches commonly to monitor Windows services:
    a) Change Tracking and Inventory or
    b) Event log e.g. event 7036 with Collect Windows event log data sources with Log Analytics agent
