We have a requirement to access metrics exposed in Azure Monitor under a different metric namespace (azure.vm.linux.guestmetrics). is it possible to extend the available namespace in anyway, or would I have to use a script collector to hit the azure monitor API?

As of this moment, it isn’t possible to specify an alternate metric namespace with the core Azure modules, you would have to leverage a custom script in this scenario. Investigating the matter, it would seem we’d evaluated the viability of doing so previously and found it would would take a considerable amount of work while very few customers had any need or benefit. With that said, I would recommend submitting feedback through your portal to formally request support for this functionality.
