In this document, we will be looking at how we can enable Basic Metrics on Azure. This document will cover how to do this manually. If you don't have Basic Metrics enabled then Azure will not be collecting Memory Stats and Turbonomic will not be able to pull this information from Azure.
Step 1: Login to your Azure Portal (http://azure.portal.com)
Step 2: If you are creating a new VM then make sure you have "Guest OS diagnostic" Enabled.
If you have previous VMs then follow the steps mentioned below.
Step 3: Select the VM you would like Turbonomic to Monitor Memory Metrics for.
Step 4: Select "Diagnostic Settings"
- For Windows VMs
- For Linux VMs
- Select Diagnostics settings
- Make sure the Status is On
- Storage account: - Select your storage account so that the metrics stats can be stored
- Make sure the Basic metrics option is checked
After you enable Basic metrics the Save button should be enabled so you can save the settings. The screenshot below shows an example of how it will look after enabling basic metrics.
After you enable Basic Metrics you will be able to see a lot more Metrics on the Metrics sections.
