<h1 id="monitormediaservicesaccount">How to Monitor a Media Services Account</h1>
The Windows Azure Media Services dashboard presents usage metrics and account information that you can use to manage your Media Services account.
-Currently, you can only monitor your blob storage usage and until you configure storage monitoring for your Media Services account, no monitoring data is collected and the metrics charts on the dashboard are empty. Similarly to general storage monitoring, you can choose the level of blob storage monitoring - minimal or verbose - and specify the appropriate data retention policy for the service.
+You can monitor the usage of your blob storage associated with your Media Services account. You can also monitor the number of queued encoding jobs as well as failed, queued, and active tasks for encoding jobs.
+You can choose to monitor your data for the last 6 hours, 24 hours or 7 days.
