Fully Qualified Name (FQN) Type Units Statistic Min Max Sparse Data Strategy BASE CORR UTIL Description azure.applicationgateway.throughput GAUGE bytes/second average 0 none none yes no no The number of bytes per second being processed by the gateway.

Azure Installation

1. Create a Microsoft Azure Integration Card From the top navigation menu, select Integrations. Click the Microsoft Azure card. In a separate, new tab, open the Azure portal. The following instructions were created using the Azure portal not the classic portal. Instructions vary depending on which portal you’re using. 2. Create an Active Directory Application in Azure Once in the Azure portal, click Azure Active Directory from the left side menu.

Description CPU Threshold Exceeded Boot Diagnostics 15 min Processor.PercentProcessorTime has a static threshold > 50% WARNING The CPU on the Azure Virtual Machine has exceeded 95% for at least 15 minutes. Elevated CPU Activity (Normal Network Activity) Boot Diagnostics 30 min Processor.

Note that this metric is the same as the Basic Metric azure.

Enable Guest OS Diagnostic Metrics

Azure Virtual Machines will share boot diagnostic metrics by default, which are a small subset of core metrics. To enable Guest OS diagnostic (basic) metrics that provide more information about your machine, you’ll need to follow these steps (depending on your situation): Enable Basic Metrics on Existing VM In Azure, navigate to Virtual machines. Select a virtual machine. Another window with options will open. Select Diagnostic settings. Under Configure required settings, select the checkbox next to Basic metrics.

Filter Elements

You can filter what Azure elements are included in Metricly’s monitoring by using regex to match key-value pairs. Metricly offers opt-in (include) or opt-out (exclude) element filtering. Using opt-in filtering In your Azure portal, create or choose an existing tag (key-value pair). Then, assign the tag to the Azure elements you do not want Metricly to monitor. In Metricly, navigate to your Azure integration card. Expand the element types you want to filter.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform, similar to Amazon Web Services. With Azure integration in Metricly, you can monitor the performance of your entire cloud infrastructure. Metricly requires Reader role permissions of your Azure environment, which can be granted using the Owner or User Access Administrator roles.
