In September of last year we announced the public preview of multi-dimensional metrics in Azure Monitor, Microsoft’s built-in platform monitoring service for Azure. Today we are pleased to announce the general availability of the APIs that support this capability.
Now you can explore your Azure metrics through their dimensions and unlock deeper insights. Dimensions are name value pairs, or attributes, that can be used to further segment a metric. These additional attributes can help make exploring a metric more meaningful. Azure Monitor has also increased our metric retention period from 30 days to 93 days, so you can access data for longer, and do meaningful comparisons across months.
