Better Management of WAD Diagnostic Tables
Today it is really easy to configure the collection of Perf Counters for your PAAS apps. AND nearly impossible to manage the data that produces.
I'd like Management Portal to let me set a "Truncate after N Days" setting on all the WAD tables. especially WADPerformanceCountersTable
I'd like a Report or Display to help me manage my Azure Tables. Show me "Table Name" "Storage used (MB)" "Num Rows / Num BLOBs" it doesn't have to be exact, a close approximate will do. This would help to understand billing. As it is easy to have 100's GB's in Storage tables that no-one is aware of.
For us to read every row in every table can take days. As you bill us, you much be keeping some higher level metrics we could view too.
Also nice if Perf Mon could use the WAD counters table as a data source.
Note: This has been a major source of frustration for us for over 18 mths. The Our cloud apps generate more WAD data than we have bandwidth to delete remotely. We needed to create & run a dedicated Cloud server just to manage the truncation. Which is unacceptable.
