How can we improve Azure Log Analytics ?

Show Contextual data such as CPU and RAM for servers

When I click over a list that shows servers and select a given server from the list it would be nice to get a quick overview of the system. Such as OS SKU, CPU, RAM, Disk Free and so on.

We have not forgotten about this but this is a multi-faceted feedback that expresses a desire (show me/let me pivot to contextual data), but besides the graphical interaction we need to bring the right capabilities and the right data types to the platform first.

A first step in this direction is the common ‘Computer’ field – http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operations-insights/suggestions/6519266-unify-standardize-computer-field-across-intellig
that allows you to pivot from one data type to another, and to join different data types thru sub-searches http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519234-filter-groups-of-computers-thru-subqueries-in-n
(which anyhow are generic and work with other fields too)

We are starting to discuss what a UX for ‘context’ could look like, but we are not finished with bringing in new data types to make that really compelling :-)

One example of such ‘context’ is in the form of tracking configuration changes – http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operations-insights/suggestions/6519185-need-configuration-change-tracking-solution-softw so you can move from a troubleshooting scenario (capacity or events) to a ‘context’ of what has changed on the machine, for example.

Another piece of data needed to shows you CPU/RAM/Disk free (as written in the feedback) is also PERFORMANCE data – http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519061-collect-custom-windows-performance-counters

We are also discussing how to bring some inventory-type data to allow for more dynamic ‘group’ definitions as foundation for this idea.
