Are site metrics available thru the Azure Management portal?

Why not just use Google http://www.google.com/webmasters/
It's free and you would just simply need to add a file to the root of your solution.

Thanks for the tip. I tried it.
Unfortunately this is a Silverlight 4 app running on Azure. Google Webmasters does not work. The Google methods for verifying domain name ownership fails in this case.

Windows Azure currently does not provide any site usage matrix. After all, Windows Azure is not meant to be a web hosting provider. We can do much more than hosting web sites.
I don't see how Google Webmasters (or similar services like Bing Webmaster) don't work in Windows Azure web roles. Those services do require domain verification. But you only need to do that once. So create a deployment with the file required by the webmaster tools, and verify the ownership. Then you can remove the deployment if you want.
By the way, if your web role only contains a Silverlight application, it may not be a good candidate to run in Windows Azure. Silverlight applications run on the client, so you're not using the power of the cloud. Of course if the Silverlight application invokes services hosted in Windows Azure, that's another story.

We don’t need to deploy a Silverlight application during domain verification. For example, first deploy a simple application with a single HTML page which contains the meta code. After the validation is done, remove the deployment, and deploy your Silverlight application. The verification only needs to be done once. After that, even if you remove the meta code, it will continue to work fine.

You could use google analytics in your silverlight application. This link will be helpful.
Google Analytics works perfectly on cloud.
