Host Template: Cloud - Azure - Storage Accounts

Azure Storage Accounts is Microsoft's storage solution for the cloud. It allows optimized storage for massive amounts of unstructured data. This may include text or binary data, such as images, video or audio.

This Host Template allows you to monitor all the metrics you need to efficiently run Azure Storage Accounts on Microsoft Azure. After installation, you'll be able to check the used capacity in bytes, the percentage availability for the storage service as well as the average end-to-end latency amongst many other metrics.

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
Azure - Storage Account - Capacity The Account used capacity, in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Availability The percentage of availability for the storage service or the specified API operation [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] availability=30:,10: %
Azure - Storage Account - Bytes The amount of ingress/egress data, in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Latency The average latency/end-to-end latency used by Azure Storage to process a successsful request in milliseconds [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A ms
Azure - Storage Account - Blob Capacity The amount of storage used by the storage account's Blob service in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Blob Availability The percentage of availability for the storage service or the specified API operation [Default Timespan = 1440mins, Granularity = 1440mins] availability=30:,10: %
Azure - Storage Account - Blob Count The number of Blob/containers in the storage account's Blob service [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A N/A
Azure - Storage Account - Blob Bytes The amount of ingress/egress data, in bytes [Default Timespan = 1440mins, Granularity = 1440mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Blob Latency The average latency/end-to-end latency used by Azure Storage to process a successsful request in milliseconds [Default Timespan = 1440mins, Granularity = 1440mins] N/A ms
Azure - Storage Account - Table Capacity The amount of storage used by the storage account's Table service in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Table Availability The percentage of availability for the storage service or the specified API operation [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] availability=30:,10: %
Azure - Storage Account - Table Count The number of table/table entities in the storage account's Table service [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A N/A
Azure - Storage Account - Table Bytes The amount of ingress/egress data, in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Table Latency The average latency/end-to-end latency used by Azure Storage to process a successsful request in milliseconds [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A ms
Azure - Storage Account - Queue Capacity The amount of storage used by the storage account's Queue service in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Queue Availability The percentage of availability for the storage service or the specified API operation [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] availability=30:,10: %
Azure - Storage Account - Queue Count The number of queue/queue messages in the storage account's Queue service [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A N/A
Azure - Storage Account - Queue Bytes The amount of ingress/egress data, in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - Queue Latency The average latency/end-to-end latency used by Azure Storage to process a successsful request in milliseconds [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A ms
Azure - Storage Account - File Capacity The amount of storage used by the storage account's File service in bytes [Default Timespan = 120mins, Granularity = 60mins] N/A B
Azure - Storage Account - File Availability The percentage of availability for the storage service or the specified API operation [Default Timespan = 1440mins, Granularity = 1440mins] availability=30:,10: %

Usage Instructions

To use this Host Template you will need to provide access to the subscription you wish to monitor

Navigate to the Subscriptions section and select your Subscription.

In the Subscription to be monitored, click Access Control (IAM).

Then click the Add button, select the required role and select the application, once for each of the following roles: * Reader

Add Subscription to Application

Add Subscription to Application

Repeat these steps for each subscription you wish to monitor.



Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Cloud - Azure - Storage Accounts Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.



Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this Host Template

The Service Checks in this Host Template use the following variables, and they will be added to your Opsview Monitor instance when you import the Opspack:

AZURE_CREDENTIALS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your Azure Credentials.

| Parameter | Position in Variable | Name | Description | |:---------:|:--------------------:|:-----|:------------| | --subscription-id | Arg1 | Subscription ID | The Subscription ID of your Azure Subscription | | --client-id | Arg2 | Client ID | The Client ID of your Azure Subscription | | --secret-key | Arg3 | Secret Key | The Secret Key of your Azure Subscription | | --tenant-id | Arg4 | Tenant ID | The Tenant ID of your Azure Subscription |

AZURE_RESOURCE_DETAILS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your Azure Resource Details.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--resource-group Arg1 Resource Group Name of the Azure resource group to be monitored
--resource-name Arg2 Resource Name Name of the Azure resource to be monitored


For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

For mode-specific help, run the plugin with the -h -m <mode> flags. This will list the required and optional Variable Arguments for that mode. The appropriate mode for each Service Check is listed here:
