  1. Add the ability to export the server listing (to excel, text file, etc.) which could then be used for internal asset management comparisons

    Add the ability to export the server listing (to excel, text file, etc.) which could then be used for internal asset management comparisons. We could use this export against the Security Map export to validate server missing. Would also allow us to compare that export with an internal Asset Management inventory list to find deltas in machines not having the Dependency agent installed. we have a large organization (3,500+ servers) and we want to make sure all servers get the Monitoring and dependency agent.

    • Monitor DocumentDB Database/Collection

      Can we monitor logs sent to Azure DocumentDB Collection from OMS/Log Analytics?

      In other words, any plan of including Azure DocumentDB in the list of Azure resources under Workspace Data Sources as is currently in the Azure Portal?

      • OMS Solutions for Service Bus, Logic Apps

        OMS is very much targeted at VM IaaS services at present - can we see some more solutions for the PaaS suite?

        • Showing all machines in designer view, rather than just 10

          Currently have 15 machines feeding into one OMS portal.

          In the designer view I have created tiles for CPU/Memory/Disk Space/Etc, but in the list it only shows a maximum of 10 machines, whereas the bar graph shows all 15.
          Is it possible to get an option to adjust the amount of machines that can be viewed in said section to allow for an easier management of the thresholds?

          Thanks

          • We can see logs in OMS but not in AD Audit Trails Logs, why?

            We are in the Security Group in OMS and Reader group in AD, can't see Audit Trails in AD but we can see them in OMS. Unfortunately, I'm not a user in OMS, but can see various solutions.

            • Make it easy to display a Dahboard via a TV

              I'd like to make the dashboard available via a TV...a readonly view so everyone can see the tiles and health of the systems we are monitoring.

              We could create a url that contains a token to only the dashboard, so you don't have to authenticate to make it easy to supply to our digital signage system.

              Thanks

              • Ability to Add Computer to Group

                Need the ability to create and add computers to groups in the portal without a dependency on a search query, Active Directory, or SCCM. Manually adding computers to groups would allow for queries against a list of machines that make up an application or site without a good naming convention in place. I am yet to meet an environment that has a well followed naming convention that makes it easy to filter by searching.

                    • Azure VM State

                      I'm deploying OMS for a customer who would like to see a dashboard and receive an alert if an Azure VM is stopped instead of deallocated. Is this possible today with existing solutions that do not utilize Azure Automation?

                          • Make a way to have tiered patching

                            It would be nice to have the ability to patch your test environment and then being able to patch you production environment to the same level as the test environment even though more new patches has been released.
                            I way to do this could be to set a milestone Date.

                                • 6 hours SLA on indexing custom log data is a very long time to alert on

                                  According to this article https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/sla/log-analytics/v1_1/ SLA on indexing log data might take up to 6 hours. OMS has built in alerting that allows you to trigger actions within 5 minutes of data arrival. But if indexing takes more than 5 minutes - then what's the point of creating alert that might trigger on something that is no longer a problem, or not trigger at all if there is real problem. What is the average data indexing time? Log Analytics would be much more useful and have many more applications in real world if that indexing time is much lower. 6…

                                  • Add support for days in alerts feature for both alert frequency and alert suppression

                                    We need more flexibility for the alert triggers that allows both weekly and monthly triggers. Basically you should add support for days triggers and perhaps also a date trigger would be great.

                                        • Include Dependency Agent Version in Agent Heartbeat Data

                                          Currently the agent heartbeat data only contains the MMA version number. Would it be possible if the Dependency Agent version number is also included?
