Table: azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm - Query Azure Compute Virtual Machine Scale Set VMs using SQL

Azure Compute Virtual Machine Scale Sets are a group of identical, load-balanced VMs. They are designed to support true auto-scale, no pre-provisioning of VMs is required, and they let you centrally manage, configure, and update a large number of VMs. With auto-scale, VMs get automatically created and added to a load balancer and get removed when not in use.

Table Usage Guide

The azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm table provides insights into the individual virtual machines within an Azure Virtual Machine Scale Set. As a system administrator, you can explore VM-specific details through this table, including the current state, configuration, and associated metadata. This table is useful for monitoring the status and performance of each VM in a scale set, enabling efficient resource management and troubleshooting.

Examples

Basic info

Analyze the settings to understand the distribution and organization of your virtual machine scale sets in Azure. This can be helpful to manage resources and monitor regional deployment of your virtual machines effectively.

select
name,
scale_set_name,
instance_id,
id,
vm_id,
region,
resource_group
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm;
select
name,
scale_set_name,
instance_id,
id,
vm_id,
region,
resource_group
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm;

List Standard tier scale set virtual machine

Determine the areas in which standard tier virtual machine scale sets are being used within your Azure environment. This allows for efficient resource allocation and cost management.

select
name,
scale_set_name,
id,
sku_name,
sku_tier
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm
where
sku_tier = 'Standard';
select
name,
scale_set_name,
id,
sku_name,
sku_tier
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm
where
sku_tier = 'Standard';

List all virtual machines under a specific scale set

Explore which virtual machines are part of a particular scale set in Azure. This is useful for managing resources and understanding the distribution of your virtual machines within specific scale sets.

select
name,
scale_set_name,
id,
sku_name,
sku_tier
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm
where
scale_set_name = 'my_vm_scale';
select
name,
scale_set_name,
id,
sku_name,
sku_tier
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm
where
scale_set_name = 'my_vm_scale';

View Network Security Group Rules for a virtual machine

Determine the security rules applied to a specific virtual machine within a network. This is useful for assessing the security measures in place and identifying any potential vulnerabilities or areas for improvement.

select
vm.name,
nsg.name,
jsonb_pretty(security_rules)
from
azure.azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm as vm,
jsonb_array_elements(vm.virtual_machine_network_profile) as vm_nic,
azure_network_security_group as nsg,
jsonb_array_elements(nsg.network_interfaces) as nsg_int
where
lower(vm_nic ->> 'id') = lower(nsg_int ->> 'id')
and vm.name = 'warehouse-01';
select
vm.name,
nsg.name,
security_rules
from
azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm as vm,
json_each(vm.virtual_machine_network_profile) as vm_nic,
azure_network_security_group as nsg,
json_each(nsg.network_interfaces) as nsg_int
where
lower(json_extract(vm_nic.value, '$.id')) = lower(json_extract(nsg_int.value, '$.id'))
and vm.name = 'warehouse-01';

Export

This table is available as a standalone Exporter CLI. Steampipe exporters are stand-alone binaries that allow you to extract data using Steampipe plugins without a database.

You can download the tarball for your platform from the Releases page, but it is simplest to install them with the steampipe_export_installer.sh script:

/bin/sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://steampipe.io/install/export.sh)" -- azure

You can pass the configuration to the command with the --config argument:

steampipe_export_azure --config '<your_config>' azure_compute_virtual_machine_scale_set_vm
