  1. % Free Disk Space Monitoring

    % free disk space monitoring is a critical requirement in a production environment. Currently out-of-the box, Microsoft offer a [Guest] \LogicalDisk(_Total)\% Free Space metric in the portal.
    This metric is useless when a guest machine has mutiple disks attached to it as it only provides an aggregated view of free space & the alerting only appears to work for the system volume.

    We shouldn't have to use the convoluted methods of monitoring all disks using Log Analytics & OMS . The ability to monitor & alert independently on all disks attached to a guest machine should be part of the…

            • Is there a way to find what all is running at present

              Display all services/resources at present active in a single screen categorically to switch services on/off/resume/enable/disable.

              This eases managing services cost effectively esp when we are working with limited budget (Bizspark) and same applies to SMB and Enterprises.

                • On app service performance counters for TCP connections, don't filter by TCP state, instead show a line per type

                  Under "Diagnose and solve problems" > "Metrics per instance (Apps)" > "Perf Counters" > "TCPv4\ TCPv4 Connections Established"

                  It describes the graph as...
                  Connections Established is the number of TCP connections for which the current state is either ESTABLISHED or CLOSE-WAIT.

                  Can you instead show a line per state so we can understand if there are connection issues. And don't filter on just the above 2, show all.

                  Also, the description has "CLOSE-WAIT" as what it is showing, but the state in TCP is actually "CLOSE_WAIT", is there a possible bug with the filter and it is actually not showing…

                    • Azure AD sign-in activity log should record and show sign-ins from service principal

                      Currently, Azure AD sign-in activity log only shows user activities. Sign-ins from service principal (certificate or client id/key) is not recorded. So it is difficult for customers to know if service principal is maliciously used by certificate or key leak.

                        • Azure Usage/Consumption

                          Please provide a admin portal like your other 365 sites that allow for usage tracking and consumption of azure resources. There are many third party tools that do this but in my opinion they should be part of the service that you are providing. I don't want to have to run powershell scripts to generate usage data, I want a web interface that provides a clean insight to everything that I have in azure and I want to be able to take actions on certain areas if needed. It is very disappointing that this was overlooked in this product release.

                          • Actually document CLI 2.0 commands fully.

                            Not impressed with CLI 2.0 documentation.
                            specifically

                            az monitor alert-rules create

                            The webpages say - you need --condition.
                            And this is used as --condition @{file} which does indeed pickup my file called 'condition' as listed below.

                            EVERY SINGLE permutation of the az monitor NEEDS to be DOCUMENTED and the --condition @{FILE}
                            NEEDS to say WHAT is IN the BLOODY FILE

                            There is NO decent documentations. So this is a FAIL.

                            When trying to issue this command to create a Azure Monitoring alert:

                            az monitor alert-rules create --is-enabled IS_ENABLED --resource-group HCM-Monitoring-RG --alert-rule-resource-name /subscriptions/blahblah/resourceGroups/HCM-Monitoring-RG/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/myCuteVM --name JeffTestCreateRule --location westus --condition @{condition2}

                            • Show Kudu sites in "Metrics per Instance" chart

                              The "Metrics per Instance" chart accessed from an App Service Plan blade is invaluable for diagnosing load on an app service plan shared between different app services.

                              The overall CPU / memory load of the ASP doesn't always make sense however, as the app services are not the only things running. If the Kudu web app is running out of control (see https://github.com/Azure/azure-webjobs-sdk/issues/1050 for an example) this is tricky to identify. Showing the Kudu web apps on the "Metrics per Instance" chart would make this much easier.

                                  currently the erros do not help AT ALL, I have a job that creates hundreds of machines, some of them fail (sometimes), activity logs show success while the errors show things such as "internal error in disk manager".. nothing beside that!

                                        There are 1000+ devices managed by Intune in my company, including 700+ shared devices in shops, it really needs the function of sync devices by batch when you do policy update or troubleshooting.

                                        • all support request list in one page for azure account which manages many subsciprition

                                          now I should check support responses accessing each subscriptions.
                                          but It would be better that I can see all support requests in one page
