  1. 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"

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. Need a metric for AKS Docker container restrarted count inside a pod.

    Originally the Idea is to show the count of Docker Container getting restarted inside the pod and the Same should appear in the dashboard
    The existing setup allows us to see the container status like Running, Failed, Pending, succeeded and Unknown.
    The Developers would like to have the count of the restart so that they can understand the application behaviour.

  8. Allow shift-clicking in Workbook dropdowns

    Right now in Azure workbook dropdown parameters you cannot shift-click within the dropdown to select multiple values. This means that you have to select each value individually. This is not fun.

  9. VM insights for the new virtual machines on azure,

    I am aware there is some changes happening on VM insights for the virtual machines on azure, my vm insight is displaying guest vm health for all the existing virtual machines.

    I want to use the same feature for my virtual machine where I installed windows azure VM agent, I can see the platform health but not guest VM health.

    Is there anything that can be done or I will need to wait for the new release

  10. App Insights should have the capability to have a logarithmic chart.

    When capturing stats against the 95/99th percentile latencies, it would be useful to have the ability to apply a logarithmic chart to App Insights. Currently, this can be completed in Splunk.

  11. Is there way where I can have Guest VM and platform health for on prem VMs

    I would like to have guest windows azure VM agent for on prem VMs,, which will display the guest VM health like my other machines on azure.

    I would like have the VM insights functionality for on prem VMs like my machines on azure. I would like to have all vms monitoring under one thing rather then having different tool for on prem Vms.

    You can currently leverage Log analytics Agent to collect log data.

    Please refer to below documentation and see if that fits your scenario

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/log-analytics-agent

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/learn/quick-collect-windows-computer

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/agent-windows

    Hope the above information helps

  12. Add a baseline metrics of avg. response time in Application Insights Metrics Explorer

    We can see the avg. response time in Metrics explorer but we would also like to see the baseline. The baseline would be the average response time in the last 30 days at that specific time.

  13. Log Analytics Process Performance Counter

    When we have configured Process performance Counters on Log Analytics, we are getting the Instance name of the process but not getting the Process Name.

    If we can get process name, that would help a lot.

  14. Traffic Analytics (NSG Flow Logs analytics) for HUB & SPOKE

    Can we have Traffic Analytics (NSG Flow Logs analytics) supported for HUB & SPOKE network model ?

    Currently a workload VM in SPOKE vnet is communicating through HUB vnet with VPN Gateway to on-premises.
    This flow is tagged as Unknown by design. We would like to see tag like "InterVnet" or "Vnet2Onprem".

  15. Having virtual machine tag information pushed to Log Analytics

    When querying from log analytics for virtual machines, it would be great if we add the tag feature also as one of the column which will be easy for filtering.

  17. The Log Analytics REST API should support chunked encoding for requests

    According to the documentation, up to 30 MB of log data can be sent in a single request: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/loganalytics/create-request

    To economise on memory, it would be preferable to stream such large requests using chunked content encoding, but this isn't possible because shared key authorisation requires a content-length header to be set: it responds with

    {"Error":"InvalidAuthorization","Message":"No Content-Length header was specified"}

    Thanks for reaching out if you see issue to send smaller chunks data with 30MB maximum size for single post would request you to please open a Azure Support ticket to further troubleshoot.

    However if the feedback is to increase the single post maximum size 30MB . Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  18. Resource health data on log analytics

    Currently we can pass activity log data to log analytics to monitor and manage activity logs, but this data is limited. If resource health alerts is passed, it will be easier to manage, set up alerts and take action on it. Currently resource health alerts can be configured only on particular resoruce section or via arm template, so for managing multiple resources it would be ideal to pass this data to a log analytics workspace

  19. Add all the render operations from the Kusto query language

    As of today the "with" render operator does not work in Log Analytics.
    example: | render timechart with(ymin=0)

    This will not force the y-axis to start at 0 if the values in the graph are higher than 0. It would be very good if it was possible to use all these operators that are listed in the documentation when using Log Analytics and when pinning the graphs to the dashboard.

  20. What should we do for only searching VM resource logs?

    Customer is using 'Use resource or workspace permissions' in workspace.

    But customer wants to access only one VM resource in Log Analytics log search portal.

    What should we do for realizing request?

    I think we should use Custom Role for Log Analytics workspace.

    But I could not find correct action for Custom Role.
