Available metrics

Storage Account - Used Capacity

The amount of data, in bytes, used by all the extents from the files that store the tenant data and associated metadata.

Unit: Bytes

Storage Account - Total Transactions

The number of requests made to a storage service or the specified API operation. This number includes successful and failed requests, as well as requests which produced errors.
