How to get metrics for individual queue in Azure Storage Queue?

How do i get metrics of a specific/individual queue in the Storage account Queues?
Is that possible?
The documentation I saw mentioned only are for the entire Queue Storage but could be wrong.
Example from the Storage account portal i can view the Queue Capacity, Count and Message Count in Metrics menu.

Thanks for your answer.

    @Gregorio Montaño Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I understand that you want to be able to get metrics for individual storage queues vs an average/total for all the queues in the storage account.

    At this point, this is not possible from the metrics menu. Please feel free to request this as a feature in our feedback channel and our PG team will evaluate this. Here is the Feedback channel-

    However, you can monitor requests made to an individual queue by enabling diagnostic settings. For that, please follow below steps-

    You would first start with creating a Diagnostic Setting-

    And then view logged activity by using a Log Analytics query or you can go the destination that you are forwarding the logs to as setup in the diagnostics settings.

    Here is a reference of Azure Queue Storage monitoring data called as resource logs that are collected using these steps-

    Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any more questions and we will be glad to assist you further. Thank you!
