    • Azure Machine Learning with Log Analytics

      1 on OMS with Azure ML. As organizations lack the ability to mine through mounds of log data to detect trends and determine what services are running well and which services may need help.

      Problem Management is one of the processes that requires Incident/Event data to determine trends. Many organizations struggle with this as they need to have a person look at this data and analyze it. Using OMS Analytics data and pumping to through Azure Machine Learning and providing insights would be valuable to IT organizations.

      This would increase IT Organization’s maturity and drive business value.. I see a…

          • BizTalk Server Intelligence pack

            Create an Intelligence pack for BizTalk Server, something similar to BizTalk Server 2013 Monitoring Management Pack:

            - Application Views
            - Application Artifacts Views
            - Deployment Views
            - BAM Component Views
            - BAM Alerts
            etc

            As a MS partner company we have several customers very interested in this feature!!

              That’s a quote a lot of votes from a bunch of new users in a very short time, although 9 people are from the same two companies and 7 other are anonymous, and a few other ones. Let’s see how generally applicable/widespread the demand is.

              Also see the comment from Daniele M. below for general considerations about monitoring scenarios.

              Let’s also clarify (this is not clear in the request): is the request to support:
              a) ‘traditional’ on-premises BizTalk
              or
              b) Azure BizTalk services
              ?

            • Maintenance mode information feature

              Please bring a feature to keep host maintenance mode information in OMS. It would be great if users can exclude hosts in maintenance mode from any dashboard. And the alerts can be suppressed if those servers are in maintenance mode. Exposing API for setting or getting maintenance mode information would be the best. Thanks

                I would like to have an Office365 IP. For example, I would like to monitor the mailflow. If no mail is comming in for a few hours, I need a warning that there might be something wrong.

                • Provide Intelligence Pack for AWS workloads

                  What I would propose is to extend the capability of monitoring AWS workloads beyond simply installing an agent on their IAAS VMs. The AWS management pack for SCOM (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/WindowsGuide/AWSManagementPack.html) after importing the AWS IAM key into the system provides the capability to get fabric level details for their AWS environment.

                  If OpsInsight wants to target the cross platform as its goal, this should be a priority target.

                  • Add support for SQL Databases

                    To complete the monitoring scenario with PaaS services in Azure we will value the possibility of adding Operational Insights for Azure SQL Database to help to detect complex escenarios and points for improvement (most heavey queries, concurrency, use of the performance tiers, DTUs, in my apps, detect cpu consuming queries, RAM consuming queries, etc.).

                    • Next Generation Firewall Solution Pack

                      Possibility of leveraging OMS for log correlation/SIEM with 3rd party firewalls such as Cisco, Fortinet, Sonicwall, etc. Maybe have vendors create OMS solution packs for their product offerings to sell?

                            • Power BI dataset in PBI desktop

                              The PowerBI dataset that OMS creates via the PowerBI OMS export is apparently ONLY available in the PowerBI service (the website). We can't access with PowerBI Desktop, therefore we can't create datamodel or create measurements for the OMS exported dataset. This makes the excel connection completely useless.

                                    This isn’t really a prioritized scenario at this point, as we don’t really bring all of the OpsMgr data to the cloud, but only for specific scenarios (to which you can opt in/out by adding/removing ‘intelligence packs’).

                                    I updated the category of this idea to match it is a new Intelligence Pack/scenario suggestion.

                                    It would be great if Log analytics could correctly identify and parse ADFS audit events. currently they are identified as "500 - The Desktop Window Manager is experiencing heavy resource contention."

                                      We need to have a way to send SNMP data for network devices (snmp get or snmp traps) to OMS directly from gateway servers instead of implementing UNIX machine in the middle. this will help us a lot in measuring availability and performance of our network devices as well as define some security baselines for monitoring. we should not have to depend on unix to do this!!
