  2. Allow for performance data to be monitored by the VMware solution

    Add the possibility to monitor performance data as well in VMware environments, both for the hosts and for the VM´s.

    Examples for what I would want to look at with the solution;
    * Are there any snapshots? If so, what´s the size and age of these?
    * Show information about the datastores connected, both the size and usage details (free space, used space etc.)
    * Host CPU and memory utilization
    * VM CPU and memory utilization

  3. Add Resource Group Tags to Power BI Azure Consumption

    Add another table to Power BI Azure Consumption to allow relating resource usage costs to tags defined at the Resource Group level.

    Each record This table would have a resource group. Each column would be the tag name. See suggested layout, attached.

    This allows the tag hierarchy / inheritance which so many others have asked for in other feedback requests.

  4. Please DO NOT RETIRE the demo site: https://portal.loganalytics.io/demo#/query/main

    For log analytics, there is a demo site: https://portal.loganalytics.io/demo#/query/main, which is very useful for testing purpose since it has a lot of data.

    And now I see it will be retired on September 2nd, 2019, please keep it alive.

  6. Add ability to collect via WMI Query

    It would be hugely beneficial if to collect information via WMI without using a custom runbook.

    Information provided by WMI could be used to build custom searches (Groups) based on results of a WMI query.

    Another advantage of collecting WMI information without the use of a runbook is there is great monitoring data inside the WMI classes but the hourly frequency of a runbook is not frequent enough to leverage the data.

  7. Target Solution packs to group of computers/data centers

    I don't want to use ALL solution packs on ALL onboarded servers. At the moment the only workaround is to create workspaces by solution pack and maintain your server list by solution packs.

    1) While Adding a Solution; optionally specify groups to target. (e.g. All; only this group members or All groups except members of this group)
    2) Track data/$$ by solution pack and by servers/user defined groups. This can be used to Alert when a SP or computer/group consumes more than expected-->trigger runbook to unload SP on the server.
    3) Configure data flow by restricting (Servers; solutions;group of servers;…

  8. HTTP / PowerShell Capability to Regenerate Primary and Secondary OMS Keys

    Currently the OMS Portal has the capability to regenerate the OMS primary and secondary keys. This must be a manual step. This is quite dangerous as the URL is open to the Internet - if anyone gets to know either key then they can do a HTTP POST into our OMS workspace. We need to be able to regenerate these over HTTP or PowerShell.

    There isn't any option of regenerating via the Azure Portal and I can't find any API that might allow this to be done. The only closest match I found is the 2015-11-01-preview API which is now…

  9. 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

    Windows Server 2003 and before were using TEXT log files http://support.microsoft.com/kb/168801

    Windows Server 2008 and beyond use ETL traces – http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2008/09/24/8962934.aspx

  11. Analyse logs from App Service in the OMS portal

    Hello,

    I would like to Analyse logs from an App Service in the OMS portal, right now it's posible to save those logs in a storage account but this one can't be linked to the Log Analytics for an analysis in the OMS portal.

  12. Building tiles and views based on saved Analytics queries

    At the Moment we have to design a query in Analytics Portal, saving it for later re-use and then copying the query into View designer to visualize the result.
    It would be really helpful to be able to base views on saved queries. Instead of pasting the query it would be helpful to simply select a saved query. If then someone Edits the query the visualization gets automatically updated.

  13. Power BI dataset in PBI desktop

    The PowerBI dataset that OMS creates via the PowerBI OMS export is apparently ONLY available in the PowerBI service (the website). We can't access with PowerBI Desktop, therefore we can't create datamodel or create measurements for the OMS exported dataset. This makes the excel connection completely useless.

  14. Consolidate OMS Agent and ServiceMap Agent

    Can we get a single agent for this solution? We are getting a lot of push-back on having two install two agents to get this functionality.

    This is something we are actively working on. Note that the two agents will likely never be fully consolidated into a single executable. What we are going to do is make it easier to manage the Dependency Agent so that in most cases, it’s not a separate manual install.

  15. Rename Tiles/Queries in Dashboard

    Functionality to change the name of the query in the dashboard designer. Sometimes your results are valuable, even when they weren't exactly what you thought they would be in the tile visualization.

  18. DCR: powershell cmdlet to collect activity log across subscription in Log analytics workspace

    We have activity log solution here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/collect-activity-logs
    cx want to do the below steps by powershell command:
    - Configure activity logs to go to your Log Analytics workspace.
    - In the Azure portal, select your workspace and then click Azure Activity log.
    - For each subscription, click the subscription name.

    Currently we don't have any powershell commands to do the same, as I know, we have some powershell command to enable custom logs in log analytics, hence please also provide similar command to connect activity logs in workspace across subscription.

    Currently, you can add your users fro the ‘settings’ page and invite either LiveID or AAD users/groups to access the workspace directly from https://preview.opinsights.azure.com/

    You can have direct agents and SCOM management groups that live in different subscriptions than the one the workspace is linked to. The only scenario that is limited at the moment is ingesting data from storage accounts (WAD data). We are investigating for how many this is important enough to allow cross-subscription reading of Storage accounts.

    Also read this other thread for an additional requirement we have heard in this area http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519233-improve-multitenancy-for-managed-services-provider#comments

  20. Fix Operations Manager Health Service Modules Event ID 26007

    Operations Manager fails to collect events from the Windows Security Event log, because the EventLog service concludes the Security Event log is corrupt.
