Question 2 Topic 9, Mixed Questions

A company is migrating an existing on-premises third-party website to Azure. The website is stateless.
The company does not have access to the source code for the website. They have the original installer.
The number of visitors at the website varies throughout the year. The on-premises infrastructure was resized to
accommodate peaks but the extra capacity was not used.
You need to implement a virtual machine scale set instance.
What should you do?

  • A. Use an autoscale setting with unlimited maximum number of instances.
  • B. Use an autoscale setting to scale instances vertically.
  • C. Use only default diagnostics metrics to trigger autoscaling.
  • D. Use an autoscale setting to define one or more profiles that have one or more autoscale rules.

Explanation:
With Azure Monitor you can auto scale by custom metric for Virtual Machine Scale Sets.
Note: By default, Resource Manager-based Virtual Machines and Virtual Machine Scale Sets emit basic (host-level) metrics.
In addition, when you configure diagnostics data collection for an Azure VM and VMSS, the Azure diagnostic extension also
emits guest-OS performance counters (commonly known as "guest-OS metrics"). You use all these metrics in autoscale
rules.
Note 2: In-guest VM metrics with the Azure diagnostics extension
The Azure diagnostics extension is an agent that runs inside a VM instance. The agent monitors and saves performance
metrics to Azure storage. These performance metrics contain more detailed information about the status of the VM, such as
AverageReadTime for disks or PercentIdleTime for CPU. You can create autoscale rules based on a more detailed
awareness of the VM performance, not just the percentage of CPU usage or memory consumption.

Question 3 Topic 9, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You have an app named App1 that reads messages from an Azure Service Bus queue. App1 has the following
requirements:
Messages must be processed in the order in which they are received.

No message is to remain in a Service Bus queue named Queue1 for longer than 14 days.

Messages that cannot be delivered must be retained until they are reviewed, and then manually deleted.

You need to create Queue1.
Which two settings should you modify for Queue1? To answer, select the appropriate settings in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Enable dead lettering on message expiration

Expired messages can optionally be moved to a dead-letter queue by setting the EnableDeadLetteringOnMessageExpiration
property, or checking the respective box in the portal. If the option is left disabled, expired messages are dropped.
Note: The purpose of the dead-letter queue is to hold messages that can't be delivered to any receiver, or messages that
couldn't be processed. Messages can then be removed from the DLQ and inspected. An application might, with help of an
operator, correct issues and resubmit the message, log the fact that there was an error, and take corrective action.
Enable sessions

The session feature in Service Bus enables a specific receive operation, in the form of MessageSession in the C# and Java
APIs. You enable the feature by setting the requiresSession property on the queue or subscription via Azure Resource
Manager, or by setting the flag in the portal. It's required before you attempt to use the related API operations.

Explanation:
The good news is that there are two features, the Change Feed Processor and Bulk Executor Library, in Azure Cosmos DB
that can be leveraged to achieve a live migration of your data from one container to another. This allows you to re-distribute
your data to match the desired new partition key scheme, and make the relevant application changes afterwards, thus
achieving the effect of updating your partition key.
Incorrect Answers:
A: It is not possible to update your partition key in an existing container.

Explanation:
Duplicate is enabled, and the duplication detection window is set to 10 minutes. The second M3 message in the queue will
be discarded.
Note 1: Duplicate detection enables the sender resend the same message, and the queue or topic discards any duplicate
copies.
Note 2: Queues offer First In, First Out (FIFO) message delivery to one or more competing consumers. That is, receivers
typically receive and process messages in the order in which they were added to the queue, and only one message
consumer receives and processes each message.

You have an Azure web app named App1 that contains the following autoscale conditions:

At 06:00, WebApp1 is running four instances.
You need to identify how many instances are running on WebApp1 based on the percentage of the CPU utilization.
How many instances should you identify? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.

Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: 3
At 6:00 the default 4 instances are running. The CPU utilization averages 10% for 25 minutes. The scale in rules states that
1 instance should be removed when CPU utilization averages 30% or less over a 20 minute period.
Box 2: 6
At 6:00 the default 4 instances are running. The CPU utilization averages 70% for 25 minutes. The scale out rules states that
3 instances should be added when CPU utilization averages 70% or more over a 20 minute period. However, the maximum
number of instances is set at 6.

What should you identify? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
Hot Area:

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: 5
Scale condition 1, Scale condition 2, and Scale condition 3 applies.
Scale condition 3 takes precedence as it the largest increase in the number of instances.
Box 2: 5
Scale condition 1 does not apply as its end date is exceeded.
Scale condition 2 and Scale condition 3 applies.
Scale condition 3 takes precedence as it the largest increase in the number of instances.
When you configure multiple policies and rules, they could conflict with each other. Autoscale uses the following conflict
resolution rules to ensure that there is always a sufficient number of instances running:
Scale-out operations always take precedence over scale-in operations.

When scale-out operations conflict, the rule that initiates the largest increase in the number of instances takes

precedence.
When scale in operations conflict, the rule that initiates the smallest decrease in the number of instances takes

precedence.
