  1. Linux Dependency Agent RHEL kernel support

    The latest Linux Dependency Agent installer does not yet support RHEL 7.3 kernel release 3.10.0-693 (Security Advisory RHSA-2017:1842). Is it on the release roadmap?

    • Bring Network Performance Monitor into Service Map

      For example, in a 3-tier deployment of a web service (IIS front end, middle tier job processing and SQL backend), I would like to see the results of network performance monitoring in the Service Map solution. This could be very useful when troubleshooting slowness to the SQL server, but using Service Map to visualize the 3 tiers as a group.

      • Service Group for Group of Computer Groups

        I'm glad the Computer Group addition was add but if the grouping can be taken a step further and show high level view with connections between defined computer groups that contain computers that are communicating. Then clicking a group within this view would take you to your computer group for drill-down details. But the relationship between groups would be beneficial to see.

        • Allow deep links to computers in Service Map

          When accessing Service Map data in the portal, it doesnt allow to directly jump to a computer or machine group.

          When calling Service Maps from external tools, it would be great to directly jump to a particular machine for diagnosis.

          Those links could be pinned to the azure dashboard or simply saved as a favourite on the webbrowser.

          • 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.

                  • 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.

                      As Service Map can Identify all network connectivity it would be very beneficial if it was possible to create Automated Suggestions for Microsoft Segmentation of Network Security Groups for the Security Admin to consider and Automate the Deployment of.

                        • Apply filters to what's being shown in service map

                          Allow us to apply filters to hide certain processes like SCOM for example that might be common to all servers.

                          I added a domain controller for example and it regularly refuses to show the map because of too many entries. If I could filter out say DNS it might be able to render.

                            We are working designs for ways to filter which processes and connections are shown. In addition, yesterday we checked in a feature that should enable you to show a map for domain controllers. First, we are now grouping connections to machines without an agent by port. This provides a more useful view where you can see all the connections to a given port, and it simplifies the map as we don’t draw a node for each individual back-end connection.

                          • Annotate IP's not under dependency agent

                            Allow us to annotate IP addresses in Service Map that we can't install the dependency agent on; eg cluster IP's, load balancer virtual ip's etc.

                            • Service Mapping for more than 1 machine

                              Service Mapping showing more than a single machine would be useful.

                              I'd suggest a query based model. OMS is based on Log Analytics, right ;-) The query should by no means be limited to computers; please allow for querying Log Analytics for processes, port numbers in use etc. etc.

                              Similarly it would be beneficial if the diagram could identify and highlight OMS registered machines and not only machines where the dependency agent is installed.

                              • AppServices WebApps and WebJobs

                                Hi,
                                I think you are ignoring the fact that AppServices WebApps ad WebJobs are extensively getting adopted in the industry as this has brought in great convenience about its integration with VSTS.
                                Services like HPPT, HTTPS, FTP, SFTP, IIS Services per se are the important parts that have been brought in as a bundle.
                                Hence to know from Infra point of view it is very important that I have a ServiceMap capable of "decomposing" to the lowest possible level.
                                Please add this feature to the next earliest release.
                                Earlier called as ADM now as Service Map preview

                                  Thanks, for your feedback. Currently Service Map requires installing the Dependency Agent in the guest OS to provide dependency discovery. In the first half of 2017, we will extend our discovery to include ARM resources, at which point we’ll plan to cover PaaS services like AppServices and SQL Azure.

                                  We also plan to integrate with Application Insights data to be able to surface their app performance telemetry and alerts in Service Map views.

                                • put service map in Australia.

                                  add it to Australia regions :-)
