How can we improve Azure Cache?

Add measurable unit of Redis Cache performance like DTU (for SQL Database)

We sometimes face performance issues. Microsoft provides the following documentation to investigate timeout problem.
<https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/cache-how-to-troubleshoot/#stackexchangeredis-timeout-exceptions>

But we can't identify root cause easily. So personally I think measurable unit of Redis Cache Performance like DTU for SQL database is very useful for customer. I understand Redis Cache Advisor is very helpful for us. But if you can, could you please consider this kind of ability for good experience.

    You can usually understand your Redis Cache performance pretty well using the 'ServerLoad' metric which you can see in the portal.
    It is in a range of 0 to 100 and tells you what percent of its time the server is spending being busy handling requests.
