Azure Database for PostgreSQL

Availability BadgeResource Discovery Support Badge

You can declare to scrape an Azure Database for PostgreSQL server via the PostgreSql resource type.

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

  • serverName - The name of the PostgreSQL server
  • type - The type of PostgreSQL server. (optional)
  • Allowed values are Simple (default), Flexible & Hyperscale.

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


  • Resource discovery will discover all types of servers and thus the used metrics should match all of the types.
  • You can use tags to define which resources to include, if you need filtering capabilities.


Here is an example configuration:

name: azure_postgre_sql_cpu_percent
description: "The CPU percentage on the server"
resourceType: PostgreSql
  schedule: "0 */2 * ? * *"
  metricName: cpu_percent
    type: Average
    interval: 00:01:00
resources: # Optional, required when no resource discovery is configured
- serverName: Promitor-1
- serverName: Promitor-2
  type: Flexible
resourceDiscoveryGroups: # Optional, requires Promitor Resource Discovery agent (
- name: postgres-database-landscape
