Azure Monitor Collection

Occasional Visitor

hey there!


I need to grab data from Azure Monitor to InfluxDB.
NOTE: I cannot use Grafana Azure plugin, as this solution by passes InfluxDB, and the data must go to InfluxDB.
I’ve tried to check Azure CLI, but it does not apply to Azure Monitor service.

Not sure about Telegraf plugin…

Any thoughts? Anything will be helpful…


Thanks in advance.

For metrics data you can use the Azure Monitor Metrics API

You can then use a logic app, to periodically call this API and then ingest data into influx DB.

You can also diagnostic settings to export the metrics or logs to Event Hub and then have an adapter to read from Event hub to write to Influx DB.




Hi @Ketan Ghelani,


I was also checking for options to extract Metrics data from Azure to Grafana and came across this post.


Will the specified option work for a multi-tenant environment?

As Grafana does not support access to multiple AD setup using Azure Monitor Data Source.

I wish to collect Azure monitor metrics and Cost usage data [Consumption API] available and store in to an external Influx DB (outside azure) if possible then visualize on Grafana.


Hope to hear back from you soon.
