I am struggling trying to piece together whether I can setup alerting based upon metrics. I feel like I am missing some critical piece of the puzzle and keep going around in circles.
I would like to get some sort of alert based on data volume through NIC as a way of keeping an eye on things.
I am fairly new to Azure. A lot of the documentation seems to be leading me to dead ends. i.e Log Analytics is not available in my region. An Azure Monitor quick start points me down the path of creating a Logic App that costs more money. I created some nice charts under Monitor -> Metrics and there are some links to create alerts there but they seem to only allow me to create an alert based on administrative functions, not the metric data.
What should I be looking at to enable this sort of send alert when X target is reached functionality? Is there something I need to switch on for each service.
