Azure Monitor cloud metric reference

This table details metrics available for Azure VMs and volumes.

You may notice that more metrics appear for AWS instances than for Azure volumes. This is due to the fact that AWS generally provides more metrics for volumes than Azure does, as reflected by the metrics displayed in the Orion Web Console.
