More metrics are used for more Azure resources and even you can get metrics via Azure Monitor too. You can get these metrics from Azure Portal or Azure Monitor REST APIs. Here are some new resources available for Azure Monitor:

  • Automation and Autoscale

Automation feature is responsible for providing you the information about the jobs your Azure Automation accounts are running while the autoscale enables you to know how you Autoscale settings are being evaluated. Moreover, it lets you know about the metrics values are being read and the further actions are being taken.

  • Classic Compute and CosmoDB

Classic compute allows you to access the host metrics including Network In/Out, CPU Percentage, and Disk Read/Write for your Classic Compute VMs. CosmoDB determines the request counts according to the region, code, collection, and status.
