  1. Automatic notifications for quota limits

    I want to be notified when my site is going to go down due to a quota limit. Ideally I'd be notified that it's going to go down and have at least a few minutes to do something about it -- or a certain number of allowances for going over per month.

    Currently it seems like you need to explicitly add alerts basic on metrics hitting certain thresholds -- but I don't want to have to figure it out and configure it all myself. I want to click a checkbox that says "Automatically notify me if quota limits are about…

    Hi there,

    We have the feature called App Service Advisor, which automatically alerts you to issues in your resources. These alerts show up in the portal under the bell button, in the blade in the Azure Portal, under App Service Advisor, and over email (only if you have opted in to premium content).

    Some examples of these recommendations:
    Alert when any metric (CPU, memory) is exceeded the plan’s limit.
    When metric exceed 90%.
    When SLA is not met for 30 consecutive seconds.
    Valid ports exceeds 90%.
    And more…

    Look into those alerts and see if that meets your needs.

    All this is obviously above the great features available in App Insights.

    Thanks,
    Oded

  2. can we set alert for OpenSocketCount crossing limit on web app level

    If by any chance of buggy code sockets are not closed and the count goes on increasing to the limit set, we should receive alert which will help in web app going down.

  3. Alert of impending changes to app service 30 days before an event

    The current alert about .NET 4.7.2 upgrade to app services comes only 3 days before the due date. We are new to app services and didn't have one on our subscription when the initial announcement was made March 1st. An alert 30 days before an event, as well as the 3 day warning would help users who miss an initial announcement, and then have no communication from MS for 5 months.

  4. Add alerts for failed/successful git deployments

    When using git for continuum deployment users need to manually check if the deployment is successful or not. An alert would help take action faster.
