  1. Add drill downs - live metrics

    Be good to allow 2 things :

    Click on an item in the telemetry window so we can drill as it happens

    Also be good to be able to take out a server from the stack by selecting it ..

    • Choose to ignore 404's from the Failures (preview) pane

      Re the failures (preview) I would like to be able to choose to ignore 404's in the stats, for our api a 404 is a legitimate response and not an error

      • Application Insights VSTS widget chart should fill in missing days in the chart with a value of 0.

        When I add the Application Insights widgets to my TFS dashboard, I am able to connect to my data just fine, but when there is no data for a day, the line does not go back to zero for that day, it just goes to the value for the next day with a value. I would like to have each day within the date range have a value of zero when there is no data for that date.

        • Add a server filter to the Live Metrics Stream

          On the Live Metrics Stream it would be useful to be able to view the metrics for a subset of servers. Currently it is only possible to view all servers together or a single server.

          For example, if I had a Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS) representing servers hosting an application gateway and another VMSS representing servers hosting back end microservices, I would like to be able to select all gateway servers to view metrics for the combined set of gateway servers.

            • Add the ability to alert based on Analytics query

              Current alert options only work with metrics.

              Provide a simple alert mechanism based on any Analytics query. This could be as simple as requiring a custom query that returns two values: Filter Column and Filter Count.

              Here is an example:
              Query returns number of times a certain event/error code is returned along with a cloud_RoleInstance name. You limit your query based on whatever where conditions you want (timespan, customDimension, etc.)

              When you set up the alert, you
              1. pick the shared query. Some quick validation is done that correct fields are returned.
              2. You can then set a threshold if…

              • Implement support for querying telemetry in SDK's

                It would be great if there would be a SDK client which allows of querying data (metrics, events etc) instead of having to make REST API calls.

                Even if it might be trivial to make REST calls, from a developer perspective it would be a big improvement to just be able to call a method without having to deal with auth or looking up the call you need to make.

                  It would be nice to see the HTTPHeaders for a given request. or maybe i can't find it and it is already there?

                    | summarize Count = count(whatever) by bin(localtimestamp, 24h)

                    • Enhancing filtering within Performance (preview) within Application Insights

                      Within the performance preview of application insights there is the ability to provide a search/filter term to your Operation names.
                      The ability to enhance this filtering such that all of the charts are updated based on the filter. Effectively it could act as a multi select of all the operation names that fall under the filter I have applied. This would in-turn update the graphs to include only the operation names I am interested in

                            • Make data retention period configurable using analytics query

                              For now data retention period is fixed to 90 days and can't be changed.
                              In reality telemetry events have different values and should be stored accordingly.
                              For example I'm interested in storing exception data only for a day or two, just to raise alerts. Trace records are needed to diagnose particular behavior\ reproduce a bug, so they should be kept just for the time I need to get this job done.
                              On the contrary user related events, like purchases, logins, specific actions are very valuable and should be stored for years.
                              These retention rules are unique to each business, so…

                                Hello,

                                Thanks for this suggestion. Is it sufficient if we’d allow data retention by data type? For example you could configuration traces, exceptions and depenedencies for a short period like a week, but keep custom events with your business telemetry for a longer period such as a year or more.

                                Thanks
                                Dale

                                • Application Insights: Alerts to include optional multiple conditions and CRON time

                                  Add the ability to specify one or more conditions to trigger an alert.

                                  For example, "Availability > 0 AND Function Count > 0" over last 5 minutes.

                                  Also it would be nice to have some alerts running only between specific times hence the request for an optional CRON time (using UTC timezone).

                                  For example, "Alert to run only between 9am - 5pm".

                                    • Implement support for the standard Azure RM metrics interface with Get-AzureRmMetric

                                      We're implementing a monitoring system for our Azure infrastructure and need to be able to query metrics for resources via PowerShell. We're currently able to use Get-AzureRmMetricDefinition and Get-AzureRmMetric to query metrics for other resources on a per-resource basis, but Application Insights doesn't support this (I would think) standard Azure RM interface. Please add support for Azure RM's Metrics infrastructure to query all the metrics otherwise available in Application Insights.

                                      • Can we have line breaks allowed? The query will be more readable that way.

                                        It is really painful to write a query and go to edit it in Kusto. Could you guys allow line breaks.

                                        • Where multiple app services send their telemetry to a single application insights instance, allow configuration of alerts at the app level.

                                          At the moment app insights alerts such a server exceptions do not differentiate which app service threw the exception if there are multiple app services talking to the same instance.
