  1. Centralised Log Analytics Agent management and consistent terminology

    As is often the case with MS, there are too many ways of doing the same thing and they often clash.

    Log Analytics Agent deployment is one of them.

    As far as I can tell, you can deploy LAA in about five different ways: Extension, Manually, DSC, Security Center and Policy.

    If I deploy via security center I can choose what level of Windows security logs I want importing.

    There are then separate Data Collection settings within the workspace itself where I can specify the Windows Logs to import EXCEPT the security ones as it says the security log is…

  2. NPM agent bandwidth utilization

    Getting ready to install the NPM Agent on about 500 Servers in my customers on premises environment but we need to be able to tell them approximately how much bandwidth this agent will be using we know that you can tell the NPM Agent to use no more than 5% of the CPU but we do not know how much bandwidth it will be using to send the gathered data to the Log Analytics workspace.

  6. Region based Log Analytics VM agent deployment/enrollment policy or Security Center Setting

    We're trying to ensure all VMs deployed in our environment is automatically enrolled into OMS/Log Analytics in their respective Region (or paired region depending on Automation Account Pairing restrictions).
    Current auto-enrollment settings found in Security Center would dump all VMs in a single subscription into one Log Analytics Workspace - not good as we're in 8 different Azure regions across the world.
    Log Analytics Agent deployment Policy can only be scoped down to Subscription and Resource Group - no policy scoping for Azure region available.

  8. Log Analytics agent support for specific event IDs

    I'd like to be able to ingest specific Windows event log event IDs. Considering billing is done by ingestion, there are some Informational events I need to ingest while ignoring other, extremely noisy events. In my opinion, there should be more than an "all or nothing" configuration approach.

  10. Why Does MS Continuously Break Things that Work???

    I have Azure Functions. For certain operations, during development, I use context.getLogger().severe(logMessage); Simple. Straightforward. AppInsights, as piggish as it was, would at least show the message by default. I did not have to learn yet another bit of syntax that is almost but not quite like some other logging syntax. Now, I look at Log Analytics (something wrong with AppInsights as a name? Who could guess) and I get a bunch of useless IDs, but DO NOT GET THE LOG MESSAGE by default. OR THE SEVERITY. Supposedly a field called 'desc' should be in the result (is that the log…

  12. Provide ability to schedule a query and export to a storage account

    Azure Log Analytics has become a key for monitoring and operation. It would be great if Microsoft brings built-in schedule and export to a storage account. For example I have a query to query against AzureActivity. I would like to have that query be scheduled, and uploaded to a given storage account. I know this can be done technically with Azure Automation service though.

  13. Allow to specify file name when exporting

    It would be good to allow user to name the file when it is being exported. Currently file name is like query_data.csv. Or it should add the current datetime to file name

  14. Update Management

    We have over 1500 VM's around the globe. I am setting up Update management per region. I have created a automation account and workspace for each region UK, USA, Europe.
    I need a centralised location to update the patches and windows updates.
    Is there a way to connect to the update management workspace with out losing the subscriptions default workspace as that is connected to Monitoring agent and network watcher.
    When will the Update management be available in UKWEST workspaces.
    Thank you

  15. Allow substitution in workspace expression identifier

    I would like the ability to substitute the identifier in the workspace() expression. The use case is specifying what workspace to query based on a some logic (case statement, etc..). Specifically, if this worked:

    let wspace="myworkspacename"
    workspace(wspace).Perf
    | distinct Computers

    It would provide the ability to build some logic when working with multiple workspaces.

  16. Hard-delete option for Log Analytics workspaces

    We're building immutable infrastructure for our product and would like to delete/destroy any resource on-demand. Unfortunately we noticed the Log Analytics workspaces use a "soft-delete" which gives us the ability to recover workspaces for a certain amount of time.

    Although this is a nice feature, it also limits us in our ability to destroy and create workspaces at any given time. Therefore we would like to propose a "Hard-delete" option which needs to be configured explicitly when deleting a workspace.

  17. registry: custom registry groups and friendly name->how search ?

    You offer to monitor own registry keys and you can define friendly name and own registry groups.
    But I was not able to find any way to build queries based on it like custom registry group or filter "friendly name" contains "mystring"

  18. Performance counter data for on Prem Analysis services is not populating

    I have on prem Analysis services installed and the VM is connected to log analytics workspace to send perf data. I do have MSAS12 perf counters available but these counters seems to be collecting data only for older versions of Analysis Services and not the lates. For eg: MS Analysis Services 2017.

    Any idea how I can pull perf counters of Analysis services 2017?

  19. Want to display the graphs added to the Tile directly on the dashboard from View Designer.

    Hello,

    Now, we have to create query and use "Pin to dashboard" when wants to show the graphs on dashboard.
    However, View Designer can create easily some graphs.
    It is very effective if we can paste this graph directly on the dashboard.

  20. 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
