Hi Team,

I have a data disk attached to my VM. However, I noticed that the disk got a spike in storage of data over a month. I would like to know if I can showcase the spike in storage of data on the disk graphically on which days, there was a spike in storage.

Ciao

    You would have to monitor this from the Guest OS diagnostics by enabling disk performance counters. You could then monitor the free storage and even set up alert rules on this.
