The simplest strategy for application performance measurement is for an IT staff to instrument an application with the metrics that matter to it, package it up as a virtual machine set of files and send it into the cloud of choice.     
Your instruments, in whatever manner you configured them, will need to periodically send out information to a logging or storage system, where you can retrieve them or have them sent directly to an analytics application for continuous analysis. This is a do-it-yourself, engineering-intensive approach that depends entirely on the skills of the engineers involved.

How about monitoring segments of the Internet?
An additional approach would be to collect feedback on the Internet network segments your cloud workloads are depending on to see whether they are functioning at par or are subject to some kind of degradation, which would affect your application's performance. But getting visibility into Internet segments isn't necessarily easy.
