  1. ExpressRoute / On-Premises to VNET monitoring

    Add ability to monitor and store latency between Azure VNet and On-Premises network.

    We have an ExpressRoute circuit and would like to know how latency changes throughout a day, allowing us to possibly correlate it with other traffic.

    For example, to record a 15 second ICMP Ping round trip every 5 minutes would be a very good start.

    Bonus points: Tracking throughput would be nice too - think PsPing.exe

    • Network Monitoring API or Powershell Cmdlet for adding/removing nodes to be monitored

      Hello,
      Is it possible to use OMS - NPM with some kind of API or Poweshell Cmdlet.

      I have the following example that I need to solve:

      We create VMs and then sometimes they are turned off as they no longer needed for whatever reason. I do not want to still monitor network traffic to this node/VM on Azure.

      Currently we have to use the NPM UI configuration to select the node and click the checkbox for 'Use for monitoring` which is open to human error for when we forgot to disable this and more likely we forget to re-enable…

      • ExpressRoute Monitoring from multiples VNETs from different subscriptions

        I have a scenario where 8 VNETs, from 8 different subscriptions are connected to a single ER Circuit. Today, NPM needs that I create 8 different OMS Workspaces to be able to monitor each VNET individually. I wish that we could add VNETs from different Subscription in the same OMS Workspace/NPM Solution, and have a single pane to monitor them all.

        • ad snmp to service endpoint monitor

          The new service endpoint monitor is a very welcome addition. The only thing now missing from the OMS solution is a user-friendly way to collect SNMP data. Mainly for monitoring bandwidth usage etc on firewalls & routers.The linux snmpd to OMS logs option is to cumbursome because there's no way to centrally configure this.A snap option in the service endpoint monitor would be perfect for this!

          • Synthetic Transactions for Office 365

            The network reachability tests are a fantastic addition, and taking it even further would be to allow user to specify send/receive account credentials and have the test send actual dummy email, test SPO and OD4B upload/download, Skype check presence, etc. Just a an even deeper test that O365 services are working from one of their nodes

            • Add SQL Tests to Service Endpoint Monitor

              Enable testing of database availability - similar to SCOM OLEDB capability (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh457575(v=sc.12).aspx) that can make a test connection and even run a test query to validate functionality.

              • NetworkSecurityGroupEvent Show source address being blocked

                Would be nice if NetworkSecurityGroupEvent (Network Security Group analytics) showed the source address (not just the destination address) being blocked similar to a standard ACL.

                • Availability Test Integration with Application Insights

                  Right now App Insights provides availability tests, but they can only hit external facing sites. The Service Endpoint Monitor fills that gap for any internal sites, but the customer now has to manage 2 separate tool configurations. It would be ideal if App Insights would allow OMS nodes as options on the “Test Locations” list, so all URL testing would be configured in the same place and the respective engines would execute them appropriately
