Permission for accessing Performance counters
We would like create a custom monitoring solution for our Azure Web Site based projects. Unfortunately the web site and job processes do not have permission to read performance counters.
I understand that this is mandatory for a shared hosting environment. However I see nothing against having such functionality if the user has dedicated instances.
Would it be possible to remove this restriction?
This isn’t available yet and we’re leaving the ask under review for now. We’ll come back to the idea when we have news.

I want this badly! I love using Web Apps which simplifies and abstracts everything away allowing me to just focus on my app. However, there are certain performance issues that come up from time to time where I NEED to get to this data. This comes up regularly for me and would be so valuable.

The title isn't very helpful! Could anyone change it to something like "Custom Performance Counters for Azure Websites/WebJobs" or something else so other people can find it easier!?
