Azure Functions monitoring integration

New Relic infrastructure monitoring provides an integration for Microsoft Azure Functions that reports data from your Azure Functions service to New Relic. This document explains how to activate this integration and describes the data that can be captured.


New Relic's integration for Azure Functions reports metric data about your Functions service, like the number of function executions, bytes sent and received and HTTP error counts. It also collects inventory data about the status and configuration of the service.

You can monitor and alert on your Azure Functions data from New Relic Infrastructure, and you can create custom queries and chart dashboards.

Activate integration

To enable this integration follow standard procedures to activate your Azure service in New Relic Infrastructure.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the Azure Functions integration:

  • Polling interval: 5 minutes
  • Resolution: 1 data point per minute

Find and use data

To find your integration data, go to > Infrastructure > Azure and look for the integration.

You can query and explore your data using the AzureFunctionsAppSample event type. Inventory data has a provider value of AzureFunctionsApp.

For more on how to find and use integration data, see Understand and use data.

Metric data

To view metrics reported by the Azure Functions integration, query the AzureFunctionsAppSample event type. Use the metadata associated with each metric to filter and facet the data being reported. For detailed metric information, see the Azure supported metrics documentation.

Metric Description Metadata
averageMemoryWorkingSetBytes Average count in bytes of memory working set.


functionExecutionCount Function execution count.


functionExecutionUnits Function execution in units.


http5xx Total number of HTTP server errors 500-599.


memoryWorkingSetBytes Total bytes of memory working set.



Total bytes received by the functions.


sentBytes Total bytes sent by the functions.


Inventory data

Inventory data is information about your system's state and configuration. For details on how to find and use inventory data, see Understand and use data.
