B1ls VM seemingly not accumulating burstable CPU credits

Hi folks,

I deployed a B1ls yesterday to test performance of it running a NodeJS Discord bot.

Looking at metrics today, I am not seeing any metric activity in neither the "CPU Credits Remaining"- nor the "CPU Credits Consumed" metrics.

Is there a delay to seeing CPU credits? If not, could it be I did something else wrong?

The VM is a B1ls Ubuntu 20.04 (2nd gen) with the following extensions installed:

  • AADSSHLogin
  • AzureMonitorLinuxAgent
  • DependencyAgentLinux (this is not working due to this issue), but I can live with that for now

    Hi @AndreasHassing ,

    another option if the issue persists:
    You can redeploy the VM on a different Azure host machine:

    Hi @AndreasHassing ,

    there is not much you can do "wrong" ;-)

    I just deployed a B1ls with just the usual configuration steps in the Azure Portal and after a few minutes I can see the values of the metrics CPU Credits Remaining , CPU Credits Consumed and Percentage CPU (Avg)

    Metrics after a few minutes:

    It might be a hiccup between the VM and the underlaying Azure host machine.

    I would just wait a little bit. And if this issue persist creating a support request might be the best option.
