Storage Analytics

Updated: March 10, 2014

Windows Azure Storage Analytics performs logging and provides metrics data for a storage account. You can use this data to trace requests, analyze usage trends, and diagnose issues with your storage account.

To use Storage Analytics, you must enable it individually for each service you want to monitor. You can enable it from the Windows Azure Management Portal; for details, see How To Monitor a Storage Account. You can also enable Storage Analytics programmatically via the REST API or the client library. Use the Get Blob Service Properties (REST API), Get Queue Service Properties (REST API), and Get Table Service Properties (REST API) operations to enable Storage Analytics for each service.

The aggregated data is stored in a well-known blob (for logging) and in well-known tables (for metrics), which may be accessed using the Blob service and Table service APIs.

Storage Analytics has a 20TB limit on the amount of stored data that is independent of the total limit for your storage account. For more information on billing and data retention policies, see Storage Analytics and Billing. For more information on storage account limits, see Windows Azure Storage Scalability and Performance Targets.

Storage Analytics is enabled and configured by using the Set/Get Storage Service Properties operations. These operations are listed in the following table.
