How to simply get CPU and RAM utilisation for an app service for a period of a week exported from Azure console

Andy Knott 1 Reputation point

Running a solution using an Azure app service, and I want to be able to have comparisons of resource consumption (RAM/CPU) for this app service for this week compared to last week , without having to write any code - as the team that support this solution are not out and out developers.
Is there a way to be able to easily get this information from the Azure toolset and be able to export the raw data outside of the Azure console in order for it to be graphed in desktop products such as Excel?
I'm struggling to see an easy way to do this from a quick look at the portals - which seem overly complicated and detailed compared to what I'm trying to achieve.

    @Andy Knott Welcome to Microsoft Q & A Community Forum. I understand that you are trying to retrieve the CPU and RAM utilization for app service for the past week. App Service always run on App service plan. When you create an App Service plan, a set of compute resources are created for that plan and the apps are hosted on this app service plan using app service.

    To get the CPU and RAM utilization, you need to traverse to the app service plan where the app service is hosted. You can click on the hyperlink of your app service as highlighted in below screenshot.


    In the App service Plan pane , Under Monitoring section , select Metrics . This opens a new pane where you would be able to select Scope, Metrics Namespace, Metric and Aggregation.

    To retrieve CPU , choose the metric as CPU Percentage and to retrieve RAM , choose the metric as Memory percentage. After selecting the required options, you can export the data to excel by clicking on Share on the top left corner and selecting the option Download Excel.
