Here is an overview of how we label metrics.
There are a couple of scenarios where labels are being added:
- Built-in labels
- Metric dimension labels
- Scaler-specific labels
- Bring-your-own labels
In case of duplicate label names the above priority will be used.
Every metric that is being reported in the scraping endpoint comes with the following built-in labels:
resource_uri- Full resource URI of the instance. (ie
subscription_id- Id of the subscription.
resource_group- Name of the resource group.
instance_name- Name of the instance, if applicable.
Metric dimension labels¶
Metrics support specifying one or more dimension(s) which will be scraped in Azure Monitor.
Every metric value will be reported under the configured metric name, but labels for the dimensions and their respective values will be added.
Every scraper can provide additional labels to provide more information.
Currently we support this for:
- Azure API Management
- Azure Function App
- Azure Service Bus
- Azure SQL Database
- Azure Storage Queue
- Azure Web App
For more information, we recommend reading the scraper-specific documentation.
As of v1.0, you can define your own labels by configuring them for a specific metric.
For more information, see "Metrics".
