Graph name Metric Metric name in Mackerel Unit Aggregation Type
Byte Count ByteCount azure.load_balancer.byte_count.#.byte_count bytes Total
Data Path Availability VipAvailability azure.load_balancer.data_path_availability.#.vip_availability percentage Average
Health Probe Status DipAvailability azure.load_balancer.health_probe_status.#.dip_availability percentage Average
Packet Count PacketCount azure.load_balancer.packet_count.#.packet_count integer Total
SNAT Connection Count SnatConnectionCount azure.load_balancer.snat_connection_count.#.snat_connection_count integer Total
SYN Count SYNCount azure.load_balancer.syn_count.#.syn_count integer Total

Enter either the front-end or the back-end IP address for # in "Metric name in Mackerel".
Corresponding metrics are as follows.

  • Front-end IP address      - Byte Count      - Data Path Availability      - Packet Count      - SYN Count

  • Back-end IP address      - Health Probe Status      - SNAT Connection Count

Each IP address is stored in a hyphen demarcated format.
For example, if the IP address is, it will look like this 127-0-0-1.
