  1. Add support for Redis (via StackExchange.Redis) for dependency monitoring.

    We already have great support for SQL and HTTP dependency monitoring and I think adding Redis would be a great addition. A good start would be monitoring through the StackExchange.Redis library.

  2. Track SignalR traffic

    Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. Could you please share about your scenario which would help us to better understand the scope. We do have other feedback request from customers to ignore few parts with in SignalTraffic . https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/8395065-server-response-time-needs-to-ignore-signalr#{toggle_previous_statuses}.

    So want to better understand the two requirements and prioritize it accordingly with our existing feature backlog. Please share additional details on your scenario. Thank you

  3. Ability to export all the data of currently selected event to CSV / JSON

    When you've selected a particular event, all of it's data is show in the detail tab. Provide an ability to quickly save this as CSV / JSON from the portal for reference.

  4. First class support for Service Fabric

    While Service Fabric was in preview there was a nuget package for AI in SF, but seems that it has not gone GA with SF. Would love to see health reports from SF in AI, along with monitoring of services/actors.

  5. Handle TSQL commands in the dependency blade better

    In the command field in the dependency blade, long TSQL commands get truncated and remove the most important part of the statement, the FROM and WHERE clauses. Without this, the entire blade is almost useless.

    It would be better to show the entire statement, or even truncate the start of the statement, rather than the end.

  6. Support a single unified solution for n-Tier Windows Desktop & Server Applications

    Application Insights has become significantly less useful since the decision to fragment the telemetry experience by pointing rich client applications at HockeyApp and restricting AI to ASP.NET scenarios.

    For Enterprise Development Scenarios we would like to be able to use a single supported solution that works consistently across n-Tier applications built using the full range of currently supported Microsoft Platforms (.NET & Win32 Desktop Applications, Windows Services, WCF Services).

    In practise this is still just about possible by using the low level AI SDK, but increasingly Windows Desktop apps are being locked out of new features e.g. the Visual Studio…

    Thank you for raising this issue. Addressing this is a long-term problem that should be addressed. While this will not be solved in the near future, improving this situation is something under discussion. I will keep this suggestion updated with any progress.

    Regards,
    Dale

  7. Support for on-prem

    It would be great to use Application Insights for on-premises scenarios as well.

  8. Pre-filtered application map

    Allow creation of pre-filtered views for application map. I have many nodes writing to the same application insights from different environments.
    It will be helpful if i could create a pre-filtered views of the application map using specific cloud role names

  9. Add session replay

    Add ability to do session replay. Dynatrace has the ability to tie performance metrics with session replay allowing you to a) see how slow your site feels to others and b) look at the performance metrics for why it is slow.

  11. Ability to exclude specific requests from Performance Preview Blade in Azure Portal

    This Performance (Preview) blade in the Azure Portal is super helpful.

    One suggestion though: we have lots of very frequent (and fast) requests to a health check resource which is pinged by the load balancer and also used for the availability tests which run every 1 minute from 4 different locations.

    These requests totally pollute the statistics.

    Is it possible to filter out specific requests?

  12. Allow me to move of icons in Application maps.

    I leverage Application maps to monitor traffic flow. It's difficult to have a holistic view if I'm not able to move the individual icons closer together.
    Right now I have to move up and down the map because the icons spread out too much so I miss something if it's all the way down the bottom, so please allow me to move of icons in Application maps.

  13. Get status monitor for other platforms (Java based web servers, BDD servers, Linux or Windows)

    Status monitor gather a lot of useful info, it would be nice getting a status monitor for other web servers (Tomacat, Apache), hooking into Java SDK too, and compatible with Windows and Linux.

    Also, status monitor for other types of servers like SQL Server or Oracle, or non web based app servers would be usefull to understand system behaviors for end to end analysis.

    Moreover, installing an agent while system is already in production is a change easy to test and apply, whereas asking for a new release including custom telemetry can take time (depending on continous deployment efficiency).

  14. Omit NTLM handshake 401 responses from Application Insights Failures

    So when requesting any resource that requires windows authentication (username, password, domain) from say a webjob running within an app service, the first 2 responses are 401 setting up the ntlm handshake (nonce, etc). These should not be considered failures. They're cluttering up the reporting with false negatives, as the 3rd part, the actual authenticated request, returns non-401.

  15. Live Stream full screen option for OPS view

    have an option to open the live stream monitor full screen for a DEV/OPS monitor screen to see traffic and failures in real time.

  16. Integrate SQL Server Query Metrics Such as Server CPU Time

    SQL Server offers various query metrics such as CPU time, reads, and writes. However, this information is not exposed to client applications and services. Only duration from the client's perspective is available. I would like to see better integration of SQL Server metrics with client metrics.

  18. Add feature to accept insights data only sent from domain in the allowed list

    If somebody takes my Instrumentation key, they can use it to upload junk data to my App Insights.

    With Google Analytics you can create a white list of domains from which data will be accepted. Any data incoming from any other domain is simply rejected.

    I was hoping for AI to have this as well, but I didn't find it in my settings...

  20. Link to Failures with current selection and filters

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to link to the Failures tab with the filters as they are.

    Currently it is just a link to /ApplicationInsightsResourceName/failures
