Another script I recently needed to read Azure Storage Analytics Metrics.

Here is the table schema if you need additional or different information.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/hh343264.aspx

Please note that metrics are calculated when an aggregation period ends and are not available immediately.  If you run my script as-is, it will attempt to get blob metrics from the previous hour.  If you run it "early" in the hour, the data from the previous hour may not yet be ready.  You can comment out my filter line to get all data.

Please note that you are on your own to turn storage metrics on.  My script will not enable storage metrics for you.
