Diagnostics and Monitoring

  1. Database resource utilization graph to show label/description of the resource in question when pinned to startboard

    Database resource utilization graph pin to startboard does not show database and or server name. Add a label similar to web app graphs to identify the resource associated with it. This will help to identify the resource quickly when you have multiple database graphs pinned to the startboard.

  2. Add secure TLS ciphers (which are not labeled weak by SSLLABS) to internal HTTPS Azure URLs

    Per www.ssllabs.com/ssltest internal Azure HTTPS URLs are only using weak TLS ciphers and not yet using stronger ciphers like TLSECDHERSAWITHAES256GCMSHA384 and TLSECDHERSAWITHAES128GCMSHA256. Said stronger ciphers are ironically being used by Microsoft's public facing URLs like portal.Azure.com. Please enable these 2 newer and stronger ciphers within Azure internal HTTPS sites.

    Context: Organizations like the one I work for only allow TLS ciphers labeled as strong by the majority of the Information Security community. Because of this the Microsoft Monitoring Agents on our servers cannot communicate with Azure…

  4. alert run command result

    Allow monitoring/alerting based on the results of running a command or script. For example to test if the bind server was setup properly by running a command to test if resources can be resolved by DNS. Or to check if the Trend Micro relay server, which doesn't have an event log entry or a unique service, is working properly by running a command.

  6. Improve ambiguous message

    Went to storage and it says 'Diagnostics may not be enabled'. Does this mean:
    1. I am not permitted to enable diagnostics?
    2. It is possible that right now diagnostics are not turned on

    Matt, we currently show a message ‘Monitoring may not be enabled. Click here to turn on Diagnostics.’ Clicking on it takes you directly to the diagnostics blade where you can turn diagnostics ON for it. If you are having a different experience, can you please share the repro steps and perhaps a screenshot so that we can look into it?

  7. alerts - add desciption make them usable so the people who pay the bills can understand them

    Fix the alerts. You send out GUIDS with no identification as to what the subscription is for or what is running out of credits. You might as well not even bother. GUIDS are an engineering tools. You need to make the Alerts readable an understandable by the people who pay the bills.

    You need to internalize who the alert is targeted. Showing the alert that ----***-1234- has a problem is like saying that somewhere in New York city there is a murder taking place. Please send help.

    Suggestions
    1. Add a description field (that the user who…

  8. Add shading for Alerts

    It would be nice to visually show when an alert will be fired while creating a new alert for any resource. Currently it shows a dark blue bar at the limit, but sometimes it will fire an alert if it is below the limit, and other cases, above the limit.

  9. Suppress alerts with more granularity

    Hi there,

    It would be interesting to have more granularity on the Action Rules functionality on the alert suppression blade.

    I mean, currently is possible to suppress alerts daily, weekly or monthly. What if I want to suppress the alerts fired within a subscription from 7:00 PM to 9:00 AM during the weekdays and during the weekend?

    Said in another way, my goal is to receive the alerts generated on my DEV/QA/UAT/etc... subscription ONLY during office hours from monday to friday. I.e: I do not want to be alerted by a QA server/service on sunday, while this should not be…

  10. Add machine learning to recognize patterns in I/o behavior. Also could consider ability to add contract verification.

    Add ability to monitor changes in I/o behavior (for example through machine learning). You could also consider adding contract verification services. One short coming is that we know that contracts are important for services, and that breaking a contract can cause big issues. We have however few (if any) tools to express contracts or verify that the contracts are met. Checking contracts in real time can cause significant overhead, but it could be more feasible in an 'eventual verification' approach.

  11. Metrics blades should reference what server they are displaying metrics for

    On the startboard, you can't label a chart. Clicking the chart opens a metrics blade, but there is no context or way of figuring out WHAT system those metrics are reporting from. Metrics blades should display the server/service they are reporting on since they are not ALWAYS displayed in the context of that server.

  12. Create Alerts based on AI Analytics queries

    If I could create alerts based on the results of analytics queries I wouldn't need to have both AI and OMS in 90% of my deployments.

  13. Allow downloading the diagnostic logs from inside the portal instead of via FTP

    It's kind of a hassle to have to connect via FTP to download the log files. It would be faster and more user-friendly to be able to just click a link in the portal and have the log files downloaded your machine.

  14. integrate Windows Application Proxy network traffic logs with OMS Security and Audit, Threat Intelligence module.

    Currently the OMS Security and Audit Threat Intelligence functionality only supports logs from IIS and some firewall appliances. Since the Windows Application Proxy role is intended for a DMZ secure deployment pulling the traffic logs from the WAP and sending them to OMS security and audit seems like a good fit.

  16. cli

    I hope to improve the function of Azure Command-Line Interface (CLI).
    When we get audit logs by Azure CLI, We cannot set conditions on Start-Time or End-Time.
    It's very inconvenience. However, we can do it by Azure PowerShell cmdlet or REST-API.

    Azure CLI

    C:>azure group log show -h
    help: Retrieves and shows logs for resource group operations
    help:
    help: Usage: group log show [options] [name]
    help:
    help: Options:
    help: -h, --help output usage information
    help: -v, --verbose use verbose output
    help: -vv more verbose with debug output
    help: --json use json output
    help: -n --name <name> the resource group name …

  17. Scale page > instances graph is incorrect after using "Specific Dates" feature

    As a test, I used the "Specific Dates" feature yesterday to scale up the # of instances for a web role from 1 -> 10 for just 2 hours. The role scaled back down to 1 instance after that interval. However, today the graph shows the historical # of instances pegged at 10 for the previous 5 days, which is incorrect. See attached image.
