Availability BadgeResource Discovery Support Badge

You can declare to scrape an Azure Event Hubs Queue via the EventHubs resource type.

When using declared resources, the following fields need to be provided:

  • namespace - The name of the Azure Event Hubs namespace.
  • topicName - The name of the topic. (optional)

All supported metrics are documented in the official Azure Monitor documentation.

The following scraper-specific metric label will be added:

  • entity_name - Name of the topic


  • As of today, it is not supported to combine topicName with EntityPath as a dimension.
