Diagnostics and Monitoring

  1. When enabling guest diagnostics at the virtual machine level via the portal

    When enabling guest diagnostics at the virtual machine level via the portal all you can do is click the "big blue" enable button. The portal then generates a random storage account based on the resource group name. This is well and good except we try to keep all our logs/files/blobs for a work group(via keeping all that groups resources in the same resource group) in a single storage account.

    I have been enabling then going to the agent tab and changing the storage account from the randomly generated account to the existing account then when said and done going back…

  2. Increase DBs "auto-export" feature limitation

    When configuring auto-export for an SQL DB on Azure portal, it works great.

    The only major lack is that we are limited to 10 auto-export schedules, what means that if I have 11 DBs or more that I'd like to backup - I can't use this feature and that's a shame..

    As a premium customer who pays for any bandwidth, I cannot understand why I'm so limited.

    Thank you.

  3. Ability to have metrics of multiple resources

    For capacity planning purposes it would be really nice to have a custom tile (or any kind of view) where the same metric (or metrics) is visible for multiple resources.

    For example we have many storage accounts - and to be able to view the capacity or the request counts for these accounts I have to open each one of them independently - which is a few hundred clicks in our case...

  4. What is the roadmap for the SCOM #Azure MP. In particular monitoring Service Bus, Traffic Manager and networks?

    Many of my customer who use Azure PaaS to host services want to use SCOM to monitor those services however, the current WindowsAzureMP has limitations as mentioned so what is the roadmap for such a crucial MP?

  5. Portal units display error

    When adding an alert rule on a VM, the display for "% Committed Bytes in Use" or "% Free Space" metrics show the units under "Threshold" as "Count", but this should be "%". It also shows in the Condition column when looking at a list of Alerts (for example, "> 80 Count" instead of "> 80 Percent").
    This seems to be a bug with Portal display for those two metrics and should be fixed.

  6. Improve the Auto Scaling based on queue feature


    1. currently we can only specify a queue and auto scaling based on the queue size regardless of the message type in the queue, for instance, we have deadletter messages and scheduled messages, but it is only the active messages that needs to be considered for auto-scaling, this impacts the cost significantly.


    2. auto-scaling's up scaling only supports fixed numbers, can we support relative numbers? for instance, calculate based on the numbers of messages in the queue

  7. Add support for loading audit logs greater than 90 days old.

    Allow for greater than 90 days of Audit Log searching or viewing.

    The portal doesn't allow for viewing audit logs further back than 90 days.

  9. Alerts should allow subtraction of two alerts

    Alerts should allow subtraction of two metrics. It's a lot easier and more accurate to measure deltas instead of absolute numbers. For example, the sum of outgoing bytes from an Azure EventHub should equal the sum of incoming bytes. It is kind of useless to just have an absolute metric like outgoing bytes > X since there are quieter periods during evening where it may not be that high.

  10. Fix Activity Log filter bug for operation slotsswap

    When I go to the activity log I can clearly see an operation called 'slotsswap' but when I try to filter by operation and select everything related to swap no results are displayed.

    Can you fix this filter or indicate what's the correct value for operation for this to work?

    In attached images you can see what happens when I use the filter vs not using the filter.

  11. Metrics | Diagnostics Storage Account Language | Only English ?

    Enable all language metrics for diagnostic storage accounts, is it only english which is identified in storage account metrics ?

    What is the language is changed to Spanish in the storage account metrics for VM and can't it be changed back to English ? By default, as per the design in Azure, storage account supports metrics only in the language of English ?

  13. Azure Diagnostics stopped the World Wide Web Publishing Service

    Last night during what I assume was an auto-update of the Azure Diagnostics service on a Windows Server 2012 VM in Azure, it stopped our World Wide Web Publishing Service and did not restart it. This resulted in a service disruption.

    I've attached the Event Log error.

    Why did it need to stop the WWW service?
    Is there some way to know in advance if it's going to do this, or control when it happens?

  15. data on metrics disappear after migrate to new subscription

    We migrate our resource group to new subscription. But the data before migration on service bus metrics disappear.

    We confirmed with product group. They say it is by designed behavior. But it is not convenient to customer. Please help improve the product.

  16. Increase Alert query box size

    Increase Alert query box size by removing the
    "Query to be executed" view

    While you can click on "view result of query in Azure Monitor - Logs"

    I don't get the point to show a 4line editable and 8 line non-editable view of the same thing.

  17. Allow to filter for Task in EtwProvider

    Currently the EtwProvider allows to filter


    • by log level

    • by keyword (via the scheduledTransferKeywordFilter bitmask

    We want to get Service Fabric health information only (EventId = 54306), however this comes with loads of other events (EventId = 17523) which we are not interested in at all.

    Both are logged with keyword "Default;CustomerInfo" and with log level "Information", so we can't filter by keyword.

    They differ in the TaskName ("HM" vs "CRM"), however we can't filter for task name in the EtwProvider.

    It would be perfect if we could filter them to get only the health metrics but not the other…

  18. Request to manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan from ARM

    There is no way to configure diagnostic settings on an App Service Plan other than the portal, when custom autoscale is enabled.

    Would love to be able to do this via ARM, PS and CLI.

  20. Update API Version for ARM and grant the integration with other products like AKS, SQL, ML.

    -Workspace is not matching when AKS is present as part of the ARM Template. ARM Template is not functional and the required API for AKS is not matching with the one required by Azur Monitoring for Containers.
