Add support for operational insights in Azure PaaS Services
Azure Operational Insights should also support operational insights on Azure PaaS services like Web Roles, Worker Roles, Web sites, Azure SQL Databases and all the other Azure PaaS services.
Log Collection from WAD for PaaS roles and IaaS VMs is enabled for Windows Event Logs and IIS Logs.
SQL Instances running in IaaS VM are supported (via the agent) by SQL Assessment IP already as well.
Other sources of data (i.e. performance) are tracked by individual ideas i.e.
Azure SQL is a different beast altogether – not immediately on the roadmap to assess that from our end, but we started some conversation with the SQL team in that sense.
In general, we suggest you give us feedback in small-bite chunks. This one broad ‘idea’ you posted for us is really multiple separate features to implement on our end – see the list above. This means your feedback will tend to remain open for a very long time. We work in iterative/agile fashion, so we prefer to track each small piece with its own status and ship small parts frequently.
I am closing this one, please refer to the ideas linked above and/or file more specific ones.
@Jaans: The current documentation link is http://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt484114.aspx
Azure Web Apps aren't supported by OMS yet. Only IIS logs from web/worker roles and IIS in a VM.
The link to the documentation from Richard's comment no longer works. How exactly do I go about getting this to work (including Azure Web App logs in Operational Insights that is) ?
Documentation for enabling Operational Insights for PAAS (Web/Worker roles) is here:
Once you've enabled Azure Diagnostics (through PowerShell or in the Azure preview portal) you can then configure Operational Insights to read from the storage account from within the current Azure portal under the "Storage" tab.
For PaaS, it most likely can be installed with a startup script - unattended configuration documented here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn884659.aspx - we have not done any testing of the agent on PaaS roles at this stage so we'd treat it as 'not supported'. There is a thread on this here https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/50ecdf2e-0e35-4fba-927a-5ba52f726405/add-operational-insights-to-cloud-service-during-publish?forum=opinsights
It is instead supported thru WAD, and that is documented here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn904284.aspx
Here is a good paper on how to configure your azure roles and VMs to write to Windows Azure Diagnostics storage in the first place http://download.microsoft.com/download/B/6/C/B6C0A98B-D34A-417C-826E-3EA28CDFC9DD/AzureSecurityandAuditLogManagement_11132014.pdf

I've enable Operational Insights for the IAAS but really want to use WAD for PaaS. Is their any instructions on how to enable his for PaaS?
i.e. enable logging, configure
