Metrics Configuration

Wavefront ingests Microsoft Azure metrics using the Azure Monitor APIs. For details on the metrics that the API supports, see the documentation.

Metrics originating from Microsoft Azure are prefixed with azure. within Wavefront. After you set up the integration, you can browse the available metrics in the Metrics browser. Simply click Browse > Metrics from the taskbar and search for azure..

Add a Microsoft Azure Cloud Integration

Adding a Microsoft Azure cloud integration requires establishing a trust relationship between Azure and Tanzu Observability by Wavefront. The overall process involves the following:

  • Getting a Directory ID
  • Creating an Azure Active Directory application that represents Tanzu Observability inside Azure and getting the Application ID.
  • Creating a secret key and getting the Application secret.

To register a Microsoft Azure Cloud Integration:

  1. In the Name text box, enter a meaningful name.
  2. In the Directory ID text box, enter your Microsoft Azure Directory ID.
  3. In the Application ID text box, enter the Azure Active Directory Application (client) ID.
  4. In the Application Secret text box, enter the secret key that you created. Note: The Azure application secret that you enter is securely stored and never exposed except for read only access to the Azure APIs.
  5. (Optional) Enter the category names to fetch.
  6. (Optional) In the Metric Allow List text box, you can add metrics to an allow list by entering a regular expression. For example, ^azure.(compute|dbforpostgresql).*$.
  7. (Optional) Enter the resource group names to fetch.
  8. Select whether you want to fetch logs. If you decide that you want to fetch activity logs, you can also specify the log categories to fetch, e.g. Administrative, Service health, Alert, and so on.
  9. Click Register.

Alerts
