Collection of custom measurements. Use this collection to report named measurement associated with the telemetry item. Typical use cases are:
- the size of Dependency Telemetry payload
- the number of queue items processed by Request Telemetry
- time that customer took to complete the step in wizard step completion Event Telemetry.
You can query custom measurements in Application Analytics:
customEvents | where customMeasurements != "" | summarize avg(todouble(customMeasurements["Completion Time"]) * itemCount)
Custom measurements are associated with the telemetry item they belong to. They are subject to sampling with the telemetry item containing those measurements. To track a measurement that has a value independent from other telemetry types, use Metric telemetry.
