Monitor Individual File Shares

I have 15 file shares on my one storage account, how do i monitor the usage quota perhaps set up an alert for individual file shares.

I can see the quota usage for the entire storage account but not for individual file shares.

    @Nick Diaz You can use Azure Storage Explorer to see the individual file shares quota.

    There is now Quota management API :
    This article is a complete list of all platform (that is, automatically collected) metrics currently available with Azure Monitor's consolidated metric pipeline.

    There is a similar threads discussion in Q&A and MSDN Forum which provide more information and it solution on your scenario.

    Additional information: we suggested the use of Azure Monitoring that will allow you to create alerts for an specific resource type in the storage. As an important note, If the file share is a standard file share, the File Share dimension will not list the file share(s) because per-share metrics are not available for standard file shares. Alerts for standard file shares are based on all file shares in the storage account.

    Note: If you are looking for specific feature in alert on Azure Files Share, I would recommended to leave your feedback/UserVoice here. All the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

    Hope this helps!
