Key Vault metrics

Azure Key Vault can be used to Securely store and tightly control access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys, and other secrets. Use the Azure Resource Manager to gather metrics for this resource, then ensure your cloud platform is configured in SolarWinds Observability to collect this resource type's data. See Add an Azure cloud account.

Many of the collected metrics from Azure Key Vault entities are displayed as widgets in SolarWinds Observability explorers; additional metrics may be collected and available in the Metrics Explorer. You can also create an alert for when an entity's metric value moves out of a specific range. See Entities in SolarWinds Observability for information about entity types in SolarWinds Observability.

The following table lists some of the metrics collected for these entities. To see the Azure Key Vault metrics in the Metrics Explorer, type azure.key_vault in the search box.


Health score. A health score provides real-time insight into the overall health and performance of your monitored entities. The health score is calculated based on anomalies detected for the entity, alerts triggered for the entity's metrics, and the status of the entity. The health score is displayed as a single numerical value that ranges from a Good (70-100) to Moderate (40-69) to Bad (0-39) distinction.

To view the health score for Azure Key Vault entities in the Metrics Explorer, filter the sw.metrics.healthscore metric by entity_types and select azurekeyvault.


Service API Hit. The total number of service API hits.


Service API Latency. The average latency of service API requests.


Service API Result. The total number of service API results.
