  1. OMS ability to monitor & Alert on Azure changes such as Tags

    It would be great if it were possible to audit changes on Azure such as Tags, which we could then use to trigger runbooks. Currently I use a lot of time running automation runbooks on schedules to look for these changes. Auditing of any change in the portal would be great, then we would be empowered to alert on specific conditions.

    • Analyse logs from App Service in the OMS portal

      Hello,

      I would like to Analyse logs from an App Service in the OMS portal, right now it's posible to save those logs in a storage account but this one can't be linked to the Log Analytics for an analysis in the OMS portal.

      • Please provide option to directly map blob storage for custom logs

        Please provide option to directly map blob storage (for custom logs) in log analytics. Now the limitation is that, custom log files saved in a blob storage location (using log4net) can not be mapped directly in log analytics. Also the concept of installing agent is not required in this context.

        For any Azure web site with custom logs stored in azure blob storage(format like .txt), should be possible to map directly to log analytics and get the data in OMS. Here there is no VM exists hence please provide an easy option for this requirement.
        Thanks

        • Improve the process for allowing OMS agents communicate with OMS Gateway

          Currently if you have a server to be monitored by SCOM/OMS, you can configure the monitoring agent to forward event data via an OMS Gateway - to act as your conduit out to your OMS workspace.

          Part of this process requires you run a powershell script, for each host you add to the Windows OMS gateway. You have to run the powershell:
          "Add-OMSGatewayAllowedHost -host <your_new_host>"

          If you have a lot of systems, then you have a lot of manual 'touch-points' needed to do these on a one-by-one basis on the gateway server.

          It would be great if you could have…

          • Annoying - when a new log is collected alerts are generated on systems where it doesn't exist

            This is annoying/bug, repro:
            - add a new log to be collected
            - on all systems where the log doesn't exist an error event gets logged and an alert is raised in OprMgr

            Please filter out those errors *or* just perform a discovery first and apply the rule only where the log exists.
            Sample alert/event:
            The Windows Event Log Provider is still unable to open the OMS Gateway Log event log on computer 'xxxxxxxxxx'.
            The Provider has been unable to open the OMS Gateway Log event log for 647280 seconds.

              • OMS - AD Replication status - A recognition error occured. Token: "ServerName". Postion: ***

                We receive a positonal error after upgrading OMS to a new query language. The OMS language query upgrade resulted in some built-in queries stopped working, for example the built in query which throws error for AD Replication: ADReplicationResult | summarize arg_max(TimeGenerated, *) by SourceServer, DestinationServer, PartitionName, TenantId | where LastSyncResult != 0 and "DestinationServer == "ServerName.DOMAIN.Local"" | sort by TimeGenerated desc ->
                A recognition error occured. Token: "ServerName". Postion: ***
                An error position *** is pointing towards the first qoute character just before the ServerName. After a minor modification the query works: ADReplicationResult | summarize arg_max(TimeGenerated, *) by SourceServer, DestinationServer,…

                • tempdb page allocation contention text is misleading

                  I think the content of the issue "Configure the tempdb database to reduce page allocation contention." is misleading.

                  It states "SQL Server is experiencing contention when it tries to allocate pages. This can have a substantial impact on performance."

                  How are we collecting this information? From performance statistics or from the state of the trace flags?

                  This issue is showing on a totally idle server that I just added to OMS so I think it is from the trace flag status. If this is the case then the statement that "SQL Server is experiencing contention when it tries to allocate…

                  • Filter Data Collection in OMS Gateway before send it to OMS

                    Please implement on the OMS gateway the possibility to filter the collected data before they are sent to OMS.

                    For example, compliance rules can be Using Regex.

                    This is a very important requirement from the security departments, so that no sensitive data such as UPN etc. get into the public cloud.

                      Will there be a OMS Gateway as a PaaS offering instead of I setup my own infra, further reduce my CAPEX

                      OMS Gateway PaaS should
                      - Include load balancing features
                      - Abstract the need of the OMS firewall requirement when working with Firewall
                      - Only allow secure OMS data to pass through the gateway for security control and compliance needed

                      • search history should not include every query with invalid syntax

                        Currently I am new to the query language and many queries have syntax errors. The history of these invalid queries is filling my history and make it useless and confusing.

                        Ideas:
                        - Invalid queries should not be added to the history.
                        Pro : This would keep the history clean.
                        Con: It would prevent organic query growth as I want to resuse/reedit the same code as my query develops

                        - Can we have the query history filterable so that invalid syntax queries can be hidden from the list?
                        Pro: This would let me reference and reuse queries that I am actively…

                                    • Bug: OMS Gateway.msi - product id number not same after install (registery)

                                      hi,
                                      i just tried to install the OMS Gateway.msi with the package dsc resource, unfortunately it installs not correct. Although it does install the oms gateway. issue is, by installatation it checks on ProductCode : 5225CCB2-878D-4D3E-8EF3-E9ED963556B7 .

                                      BUT after installation , it registers with a different productcode CC7658E2-7EB2-44D1-97C0-D0048717F6A9 .
                                      for now i fixed it for my dsc configuration, might be a minor to look into
