How can we improve Azure Batch? Do you have an idea, suggestion or feedback based on your experience? We would love to hear it!

  1. Specify Blob ContentType when uploading task output via CloudTask.OutputFile

    I'm using OutputFiles with a file pattern to upload a collection of .jpg files from my CloudTask to Blob storage. It would be great to provide an option to define the content type (e.g. "image/jpeg"). For my needs, implementation of an auto content type (like that used in Storage Explorer) would suffice.

    Thanks.

  2. Better error messages if pool is unable to add nodes

    If the managed resources for a vm image are missing or the node type doesnt support a requested feature (e.g. managed disk on A series vm) then the pool keeps trying to add nodes eventually hitting resize timeout, after timeout it starts again. Its not easy to debug those situations and a better error report would be very useful.

  3. Remove hard 15min timeout on job release task

    We use Job release task to combine/zip intermediate result from each VM before sending them to blob storage. We were shocked to find that there is a hard 15 min timeout on job release task

    First of all, when we design this feature, we never came across this limitation. If we knew, we would have a better mechanism to monitor the runtime as our data keeps growing and being terminated mean we will lose large amount of data. All documentation of this feature should have a big warning sign saying that your code will be terminated if it runs more…

  4. Allow auto-scaling formula updates while pool is resizing

    Currently, while a pool is changing size, it's not possible to change the auto-scaling formula. It would be very useful to change the formula while it is scaling, even if it only takes effect once the current scale operation is finished. If this were the case then you could correct an error without having to sit there and wait for the few moments after a scale has finished / timed out in order to update the formula.
