  1. One Overall OMS Dashboard integraded with SCOM - Cisco Prime -Solarwinds

    Lot of Enterprise organizations have Multi monitor environment Like Microsoft SCOM for Servers in the Datacenter, Cisco Prime for network infrastructure like WiFi and SolarWinds for Network components. Monitoring from outside to inside like Microsoft OMS could be the Service in the middle and make One single Dashboard for the Business, but also for IT Pro's.

      Thanks you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We are looking at developing a centralized alerting view which will support monitoring tools like Nagios, Zabbix, Solarwinds. If you are interested in participating on the private preview of this solution please email me.

    • Target Solution packs to group of computers/data centers

      I don't want to use *ALL* solution packs on *ALL* onboarded servers. At the moment the only workaround is to create workspaces by solution pack and maintain your server list by solution packs.

      1) While Adding a Solution; optionally specify groups to target. (e.g. All; only this group members or All groups except members of this group)
      2) Track data/$$ by solution pack and by servers/user defined groups. This can be used to Alert when a SP or computer/group consumes more than expected-->trigger runbook to unload SP on the server.
      3) Configure data flow by restricting (Servers; solutions;group of servers;…

      • How to remove Data Sources from OMS

        How do I remove a "DataSource" I've uninstalled the software on the server / computer and the count of "data sources connected" is not 1 less device being reported to OMS?

        • Make the pricing tiers more granular (broken down by solution)

          Today the free tier is based on GB/day of data uploaded. If you turn on certain Solutions in the Gallery (Security, Log data), you can exceed these tiers with a 2 computer lab very easily. This will make it hard for prospects to evaluate the product successfully. I think you it would be better to break down the free tier into per-solution limits, so that individual solutions could support an appropriate amount of data for free that would allow for evaluation of those solutions in a small lab environment while looking at other solutions as well. That would be a…

          • Change OMS Suite pricing model

            Change pricing model (OMS Suite) from usage to per node. That way there will be unification across all services. When new solutions are introduced it will be easier to calculate price when you want to use them.

            • reset all counters and data / empty the account / force grooming

              Currently I'm testing our QA environment in SCA and it would be nice when I'm ready to start moving our production gear over to have the option to reset/delete all data as opposed to closing the account, typing in a reason why, and then setting everything back up.

                Real-time cleanup would be expensive in the current architecture. When you close the account, data isn’t deleted immediately, but within several days (detailed in the terms of service and/or privacy statement), as part of grooming.

                Right now you’d have to close and re-open account for this.

                Anyhow I am leaving the idea open, but we feel that at this point this is a ‘nice to have’ – not a critical one – and would take many cycles and resources from doing much higher priority work.

              • Add "Opeartional Insights GUID" in query word

                Currently, we change hostname at managed server, OpsInsight does not chase changing hostname.

                And, we install agents to multiple servers of the same hostname, it is displayed mixed data.

                Please, identify managend computer by GUID in dashboard.

                  I’m interested to understand more about why when you change a hostname the computer is not considered a new computer. Also, how frequently are you changing the names of computers?

                  Lastly, why do you have multiple servers with the same hostname?

                • add the save warning when the advanced setting has chanced in Log Analytics

                  After I changed the advanced setting, for example, the performance data of the Windows on Log analytics, could you please add the save warning if I do not save and directly close the page?

                  • Include Dependency Agent Version in Agent Heartbeat Data

                    Currently the agent heartbeat data only contains the MMA version number. Would it be possible if the Dependency Agent version number is also included?

                    • Trigger the Agent

                      If I look on the last submission time of the agent, I can see that this is some time ago. As then incorrect data is reflected, it would be good if I can manually trigger the agent to update the data.

                        Can you elaborate?

                        On the free tier there is no SLA for the time it takes to process the data. Some scenarios (events/logs) are more ‘real time’ than other ones – i.e. some of the assessments run once a week… it depends, it’s not clear what you are seeing.

                      • OMS Agent Install fails

                        The OMS AGent Linux install as directed from the OMS Log Analytics Advanced Settings blade;

                        wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Microsoft/OMS-Agent-for-Linux/master/installer/scripts/onboard_agent.sh && sh onboard_agent.sh -w long-workspace-guid -s super-long-oms-workspace-key -d opinsights.azure.com

                        The downloaded OMS agent installer script tests for an RPM or DPKG installer but does not error trap and inform the console the script cannot continue on non-RPM/DPKG distributions (Clear Linux OS).
