Azure Cool Tier Archive Cost Predictions

Neal Zimmerman 1 Reputation point

we are trying to budget for future based on current usage. How do we find the number of read/write and other billable operations for our Cool-tier blob? For instance, how do i find out how many List and Create Container Operations or write operations occurred in a given month?

    anonymous user Please refer to this thread on cost calculation for changing the storage tier from hot ->cool->archive for a storage account

    You can use Transactions metric with ApiName dimension to evaluate the write operations on a storage account daily. And you can estimate monthly write operation cost with it. Reference:
    Monitoring Azure Blob Storage | Microsoft Learn
    Azure Blob Storage monitoring data reference | Microsoft Learn
