Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service.

Cosmos DB enables you to elastically and independently scale throughput and storage across any number of Azure regions worldwide. You can elastically scale throughput and storage, and take advantage of fast, single-digit-millisecond data access using your favorite API including SQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Tables, or Gremlin.

Cosmos DB provides comprehensive service level agreements for throughput, latency, availability, and consistency guarantees, something no other database service offers.

Use the OpsRamp Azure public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the Azure service.


To set up the OpsRamp Azure integration and discover the Azure service, go to Azure Integration Discovery Profile and select Cosmos DB. Need to select in Azure Integration Discovery Profile to discover Azure Cosmos DB.
