    @Arnab Dey Thanks for reaching out. For APIM it is the Capacity. Capacity is the most important Azure Monitor metric for making informed decisions whether to scale an API Management instance to accommodate more load.

    Capacity is an indicator of load on an API Management instance. It reflects resources usage (CPU, memory) and network queue lengths. You will not find any metrics for CPU and memory Utilization in APIM rather than it would be Capacity.

    For more details on the capacity of APIM instances please refer to this document. For reviewing the Capacity metrics, please refer to this document.

    Feel free to get back to me if you have any queries or concerns.

    APIM is a cloud-based PaaS solution, where CPU and Memory allocation is abstracted from the consumer. The Azure platform is taken care that for you. If you need to find out the memory and CPU utilization of your backend services (like functions and web app services) you must investigate those from within those resources.

    The available metrics for API-M are around latency, successful/ unsuccessful request/ usage and etc. You can find more here
