  1. Cannot display Threshold

    Cannot display Threshold

    When we execute the following query, Threshold will not be displayed.
    If we specify "Computer" on "summarize", the Y-axis will be plotted using the "avgCounterValue" values of all computers.
    At this time, the Threshold value is not avg
    CounterValue, therefore, it is not plotted on the graph.

    Perf
    | where TimeGenerated > ago(30m)
    | where CounterName == "% Processor Time" and ObjectName == "Processor" and InstanceName == "_Total"
    | summarize avg(CounterValue) by bin(TimeGenerated, 30s), Computer
    | extend Threshold = 10
    | render timechart

    If query for a single computer, the threshold will be displayed. However, it…

  2. Display of supported service tags

    The below docment is the network requirements for using the Log Analytics agent. However, there is no description of service tags to use Log Analytics agent.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/log-analytics-agent#firewall-requirements

    On the other hand, the service tag is described below, but it is inaccurate and difficult to understand.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-network/service-tags-overview#available-service-tags

    Currently, I think we can communicate between Agent and Log Analytics workspace with the following service tags.
    However, especially, "GuestAndHybridManagement" is not listed on the service tag or network requirements docments.
    -AzureMonitor
    -Storage
    -GuestAndHybridManagement

    I would like to check the service tag as official information. Please descrive the service tag for using the Log…

  3. Change a parameter in the URL of the Workbook whose query contains some parameters

    Currently, we can generate an URL for the workbook. However, it contains only the information of workbook name. However, some customers configure the workbook with Kusto query which contains some parameters. In such a case, it would be great if the parameter could be set in URL of the workbook.

  4. Collect Automation Account - State configuration (DSC) - Refresh mode

    In Azure automation and in Log Analytics there is no direct information found over the “refresh mode” status if the DSC configuration of the virtual machine is set to pull or push. Only the compliancy status of a DSC configuration.

    In the API of automation DSC Configuration there is information available of the status information kolomn “Refresh mode” (Pull or Push)

    In Log Analytics entry I need the extra column if the DSC Configuration sets to “Pull” or “Push mode” (Refesh Mode) so we can create alert base on compliance of the DSC and the setting if DSC Configuration mode…

  5. New Cost Model

    For Azure Log Analytics, you pay a flat fee of $2.76 per GB of data ingested - slightly less if you do the per day "pre-paid" option.

    Storage is cheap! This is way too high. The current cost model may be competing with Splunk, but not with AWS, at all.

    After working with AWS for many years, I was shocked to see the price for ingesting data into Log Analytics. We have several dozens of applications generating roughly a total of hundreds of GB PER DAY. All of these logs are being ingested into AWS CloudWatch Logs. These logs serve…

  6. Option to select Resource-Specific with CLI, PowerShell and Rest API for collect resources logs

    Please add an option to select Resource-Specific with CLI, PowerShell and Rest API for collect resources logs.
    The documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/resource-logs-collect-workspace#select-the-collection-mode shows it's currently not possible to select this destination with a script. So all logs will be stored by default to AzureDiagnostics and we can face some limits with the number of columns of the table.
    It's also recommended by Microsoft to select Resource-Specific target tables, but in our context, we need to be able to do it in an automated fashion. Thanks

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  7. Add the Continous Export function to Log Analytics (as seen in Application Insights) or provide similar functionality

    Still not quite at feature parity between Application Insights and Log Analytics. Both can now set the retention period to 730 days - but if you need to store logs for longer, only Application Insights has a function to do this via Continous Export.

    Ideally, we want to be able to long-term store logs for more than 730 days. We don't necessarily need the analytics aspect, so archive/cold storage in a storage account (or the like) would be perfectly fine over increasing the retention period past 730 days.

  8. Time granularity in Workbooks

    While creating a few "Workbooks" with metric charts I noticed that it isn't possible to specify the time granularity used in the metric charts (i.e. the amount of time between two consecutive data points).

    See attached screenshot.

    Having charts with different time granularities (due to "auto" mode) makes it hard to compare numbers between them.

    Please add a way to set time granularity to a fixed number in workbooks.

  9. Add all the render operations from the Kusto query language

    As of today the "with" render operator does not work in Log Analytics.
    example: | render timechart with(ymin=0)

    This will not force the y-axis to start at 0 if the values in the graph are higher than 0. It would be very good if it was possible to use all these operators that are listed in the documentation when using Log Analytics and when pinning the graphs to the dashboard.

  12. View surrounding logs

    Kibana has an amazing feature, where you can view surrounding logs to the current log that you are investigating.
    Could we get this in Log Analytics.

    Option to rename a log analytics work space should be available. Default names kept and does not make sense when used later as workspace already exists.

  14. Ability to see what resources support Resource-Specific Diagnostics

    Currently we aren't able to determine which resources support Resource-Specific Collection Mode. It is buried in the documentation for each resource: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/resource-logs-collect-workspace It would be gratefully beneficial to have a complete list seeing Microsoft is recommending users to switch to this mode for their resources where applicable due to the 500 field limit on the AzureDiagnostic Table

  15. Want to display the graphs added to the Tile directly on the dashboard from View Designer.

    Hello,

    Now, we have to create query and use "Pin to dashboard" when wants to show the graphs on dashboard.
    However, View Designer can create easily some graphs.
    It is very effective if we can paste this graph directly on the dashboard.

  16. Color customization in log analytics chart

    A feature to customize the color of the charts should be available, as the default colors don't make any sense in many scenarios (green, blue, etc). Furthermore, when publishing the charts into a dashboard, the colors and chart shape are changed again (from pie to donut and from green and blue to dark blue and light blue).
    The ability to choose the colors should be added to the "render" method and consistency between the actual chart in log analytics and the published chart in the dashboard are very important features that should be available.

  17. Illegible view of NPM subnets pairs

    In Network Performance Monitor when you go to "Subnetwork links" you see a list of created NPM pairs but just in IP form which is really uncomfortable. Could you add possibility to name these pairs or to tag them and display these tags or names ...anything but not just pure IP addresses because its illegible.
    Thank you.

  18. Azure Dashboards should be able to query more than 31 days from Log analytics

    I built a couple dashboards that query data from log analytics to try to compare the current month with the previous month. I set the custom time window on the dashboard to go back far enough to get all the data. But the tiles I have on the dashboard for the previous month all have truncated data in them compared to when I run the same query in the workspace. They aren't showing any logs older than 31 days.

  20. Backup / Dump Log Analytics Workspace

    We was thinking on the ability to dump a Log Analytic workspace on a storage account or other resource.
    In some cases the requirements involve retaining the data for more than two years.
    Some place for keep the information, even on a cold storage was great
