Hello!

 

I'm looking at my VM's metrics (Monitoring->Metrics), and wodening what is the difference between below ones:

 

ukash_0-1607348657154.png

Netwokr in (billable) vs Netwokr in total, and the same question about network out.

I know it's a network traffic, but does this traffic include any internal (within vnet) traffic, backup, etc?

 

Thanks for info!

 

Best Regards,

Luk

Network billable metric is deprecated and you shouldn't use it in your analysis. You'd need to use Total Network In/Out instead!

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the answer but it's totaly unrelated to my questions.  still don't know what kind of traffic is included in those metrics.

@ukash 

 

Azure Monitor supported metrics by resource type - Azure Monitor | Microsoft Docs   its "bytes" for Network In/out Total - all bytes regardless.

 

From the link above:

"The number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the Virtual Machine(s) ..."

You can find for each diagnostic setting metric the description
