Azure Virtual Network monitoring integration

New Relic infrastructure monitoring provides an integration for Microsoft Azure's Virtual Network that reports data from your Virtual Network service to New Relic. This document explains how to activate this integration and describes the data that can be captured.

Features

New Relic's integration for Azure Virtual Network reports metric data about your virtual networks (VNets), like packets dropped per second or bytes forwarded per second. It also collects inventory data about the status and configuration of your account.

You can monitor and alert on your Virtual Network data from New Relic, and you can create custom queries and chart dashboards.

Activate integration

To enable this integration follow standard procedures to activate your Azure service in New Relic.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the Virtual Network integration:

  • Polling interval: 1 minute for metrics; 5 minutes for inventory
  • Resolution: 1 data point per minute

Find and use data

To find your integration data, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > Azure and look for the integration.

You can query and explore your data using the AzureVirtualNetworksPublicIpAddressSample event type.

For more on how to find and use integration data, see Understand and use data.

Metric data

Here are the metrics reported by the Azure Virtual Network integration. For more about how data is structured and reported to New Relic, see Understand and use integration data.
