The Azure Monitor integration enables you to retrieve all metrics and logs available in your Azure Monitor setup and display them as dataviews in Geneos.
The integration provides a Gateway configuration file that enables monitoring of Azure Monitor through a set of pre-configured Toolkit samplers. You can query and list the available metrics for your environment and running instances.
This technical reference provides information on the metrics and dataviews for the samplers available through the Azure Monitor integration. If you are setting up the integration for the first time, see the Azure Monitor Integration User Guide.
This technical reference is intended for users who are monitoring data from the Azure Monitor environment. If you are setting up the integration for the first time, see the Azure Monitor Integration User Guide.
azureMonitoring.xml script provides the variables that are set in the Environments section. They are configured to ensure that the integration monitors your target Azure Monitor environment.
Your tenant ID from the service principal (this is called tenant in the Azure environment).
|AZURE_CLIENT_ID||String||Your client ID from the service principal (this is called appId in the Azure environment).|
Your password from the service principal (this is called password in the Azure environment).
|AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID||String||Your subscription ID from your Azure account.|
|AZURE_RESOURCE_ID||String||The resource ID for your Azure appliance when viewing metrics.|
|AZURE_METRIC_INT||String||The interval in which your data is based on.|
|Variable used to list out the metric names and their units.|
Frequency of sampling. If checks are executed manually, the value is shown as
|PYTHON_PATH||String||Path of the Python library located on the machine where the Netprobeis running.|
Command line options can be used along with the Environment variables.
|Option (long)||Option (short)||Type||Description|
List names, location and details of your Azure account resource groups.
List metrics for a particular VM.
List database servers information.
|--list-databases||-db||Boolean||List databases information.|
|--list-networks||-lvn||Boolean||List virtual networks.|
|--list-interfaces||-lvi||Boolean||List virtual interfaces.|
|--list-load-balancers||-llb||Boolean||List your load balancers.|
|--list-storage-accounts||-lsa||Boolean||List your storage accounts.|
|--list-cosmosdb-accounts||-lca||Boolean||List your CosmosDB accounts.|
|--get-powerstate||-gp||Boolean||Powerstate is not automatically shown on VM view listing, this option makes calls to each VM status directly.|
The sections below show example dataviews available with the Azure Monitor integration.
Note: Samplers make multiple HTTP queries to build one single dataview. Depending on the API response time, and the number of items in the dataview, these samplers can take longer to run than most Geneos samplers.
To learn more about setting up the Azure Monitor monitoring samplers on a Gateway, see the Azure Monitor Integration User Guide.
