  1. Security and Role Based Access Control (RBAC)

    Hi all. I have been trying to get my security team to allow us to join the preview, however they have been pushing back. Is there a way to control users' ability to only view data from inside the corporate network? I.e. not over the web.

    Also, within the product, can you give role based access, e.g. application teams only have access to app data etc?

  2. Local vs Cluster Storage, VMs Storage located on SMB3 file share

    There is no differentiation between local disk on Hyper-V servers and clustered storage. this is also not apparent intelligence of VMs performance when running on SMB3 file shares. I'm looking for things like "average latency for my VMs disk access" which happens to be running on a SMB3 file share.

  3. Provide a means to strip confidential info from Event logs such as ids, server names, etc

    Certain info in Event logs especially the security log could be useful to hackers. This needs to be treated as sensitive info. Assume this info could be compromised.

  4. Windows Server Cluster log collection.

    This would be invaluable in investigating failure issues and correlating them to external problems (ie, SAN problems)

    Windows Server 2003 and before were using TEXT log files http://support.microsoft.com/kb/168801

    Windows Server 2008 and beyond use ETL traces – http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2008/09/24/8962934.aspx

    Also refer to these generic ideas:

    Text log files collection tracked here http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/7113030-collect-text-log-files

    Collection of ETW traces is tracked here http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6691402-collect-etw-trace-logs

  5. sccm support\configuration manager

  6. Integration with public rest API's for Sentiment Analysis

    Ability to pull in Four Square Checkin's, Twitter Feeds, weather etc so sentiment analysis can be added to log analysis for business realated event analysis

  8. Use Windows Event Forwarding (WEF) to send events to OpInsights

    Would it be cool if you could configure Windows Server WEF (Windows Event Forwarding - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc748890.aspx ) to send to Advisor for Log Management scenario, without using the SCOM agent ?
    Alternatively, if one already has a forwarder/collector (WEF/WEC) architecture in place, could it be possible to use just one SCOM agent/gateway to pull the 'forwarded' logs stored on that collector from that single box to the cloud.

    Here the requirement is clear/obvious. We just have not prioritized this work yet.

    The overall ‘performance’ data collection needs to be refined – not just for Linux.

    Right now we only collect/provide hourly aggregates of some specific performance counters related to HyperV for the ‘Capacity Intelligence Pack’ scenario.

    Real time monitoring scenario might need some different shape of performance data to start with, before we enable this for Linux or for Windows alike, i.e. http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519061-collect-custom-windows-performance-counters

  10. Show "average/typical" industry segment figures for various KPI's (i.e Hoster, Enterprise, etc)

    This could put your KPI's in perspective and show how 'others' are doing - i.e. the average virtual:physical core ratio across companies of the same size is X and in your environment is Y, or similar.
