The SetCurrentConfiguration method is used to set a new configuration for the diagnostic monitor of a role instance. See DiagnosticMonitorConfiguration for more information.

Setting the current configuration while on-demand transfers are pending results in an error.


The following code snippet gets the current diagnostic monitor configuration for a role instance, modifies it, and sets it.

// Get the diagnostic monitor for the specified role instance.
RoleInstanceDiagnosticManager roleInstanceDiagnosticManager = 
         new RoleInstanceDiagnosticManager(myStorageAccount, 

// Get the current diagnostic monitor for the role.
DiagnosticMonitorConfiguration currentConfiguration = roleInstanceDiagnosticManager.GetCurrentConfiguration();

// Use 30 seconds for the performance counter sample rate.
TimeSpan perfSampleRate = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30.0);

// Add a performance counter for processor time to the current configuration.
currentConfiguration.PerformanceCounters.DataSources.Add(new PerformanceCounterConfiguration()
      CounterSpecifier = @"\Processor(_Total)\% Processor Time",
      SampleRate = perfSampleRate

// Apply the modified configuration to the diagnostic monitor for the role instance.
