Using Diagram feature in Azure Portal

How to use the diagram feature in the Microsoft Azure Portal (Azure Resource Manager).


It reminds me of System Center Operations Manager, when you select any VM running in Microsoft Azure, we have the Diagram option, as shown in the image below.


A new blade with a visual diagram of the VM will show up, including the VM settings, storage subsystem, network interfaces and additional agents. If the VM does not have a Public IP address the information “Connect is disable for this Virtual machine” will be displayed.


For each component we have the link open on the lower-right corner of the box. In the example below we can check the properties of the storage for that VM.
