  1. Automatic refresh and configurable refresh interval

    Introduce a dashboard setting to allow configuring a refresh interval, similar to the concept in Kibana, e.g.

    https://s33.postimg.cc/4dy7qrbhb/refresh-interval.png

    At the configured interval, all tiles on a dashboard should refresh their sources and update accordingly

  2. Remove custom events

    Please let us remove some events.

    The event javascript is a bit confusiong, so for example, i added a trackEvent("timezone", "Europe/Lisbon") , and what happened is that, the event timezone value for that event is split into an array of values like E, U,R,O,P,E,/,L,I,S,B,O,N , creating in the filter the prop E, U, r, and so on... Only after a bit of searching i realized i had to something more like trackEvent("account stats", {timezone:timezone}) and so on.. but now my filters are a bit polluted with wrong event data and need to remove that.

    Also for the metrics explore, i…

  4. Add Release Annotations to the Performance/Failures views

    Would be great if you could see Release Annotations from Dependencies as well.

  5. Graphing and alerting on the execution time per operation

    We're currently submitting "Operation Excecution Time" as a custom metrics per operation as it is currently not possible to either chart or create alerts on the individual operations execution time.

    This leads to an unhealth amount of "Custom Metrics" in large scale deployments.

  6. Allow submitting of a group tag to each custom metric

    Currently all custom traced metrics are grouped under "Custom Metrics", this is not ideal when we're crossing 100s metrics. there should be a way to attach a group tag to each metric.

  7. The preview-map needs more functionality like filtering on role or operation, as well as grouping/hiding of dependencies

    In large scale deployments with multiple operations, roles and dependencies the current preview-map is rendered useless as long as filtering, grouping and so forth is not enabled. It should for example be possible to select a specific role to view all its sub operations and/or dependencies.

    The new map experience since has been updated with better grouping of dependencies and the ability to click on any component and see the details of the dependencies/and operations in the performance and failure triage experiences, as well as overall KPI in the right side pane (for groups).

    How is this working (or not) for you. We greatly appreciate your feedback and help with improving our product.

  8. add 'x minute average' to live metrics stream cpu graph

    add 'x minute average' to live metrics stream cpu graph

    Given that cpu% is a common scaling criteria, it would be useful if the 'overall health' section showed a x minute average running total,
    so that we can monitor how close to scaling up/down the instance is.

  9. Add ability to track time as a user goes from URL to another in a funnel

    Retention is great, but it would be better if there was a time component to understand how long people stay on a URL

  12. Remove web related metrics

    My current application is not a web application but it uses the ApplicationInsights for custom events, messages and metric.

    I don't want to see all (default) web related metrics for users, sessions, web requests, views, load time,...and so on.

    For example the ApplicationInsights Azure portal overview pane and live streams show lots of empty charts (including the Weekly Application Insights digest email as well) and tables because my app lacks these web related metrics and doesn't have this data.

    I would like to remove/hidethem and put my custom events and metrics instead.

  13. Support charts with more decimals (+Y-Axis auto scaling)

    I really like the Azure ApplicationInsight charts, but I would like to see charts with autoscaling (y-axis) for my floating point custom metrics.

    For instance I have lots of floating point values like 10.2345678 with a change of ~0.00001 and the charts only shows 10.23, 10.23, 10.23 and so on...

    I would love to see more detail here!

    Thanks.

  14. Set an alert threshold from a live metrics stream graph

    While watching a live metrics stream, i noticed that i had a high error rate. It would be nice if there was a way to from a graph create an alert if the thing plotted crossed some threshold (failures per second was what i was looking at when i had this thought)

  15. Add average session length to session information.

    Average session duration would give a much better picture of usage and aid in calculations for load testing.

  16. "Request duration" should be a default column in the Live Metrics Server table

    The "Live Metrics" page contains a overview table "Servers". In this table the column "Request duration" should be selected by default, or your preferences should be stored in a cookie etc, so you don't have to configure this table every time you load the page.

  17. Would it be possible to view custom events on the live metrics stream?

    No idea how you would do this but it would be pretty amazing if you could view custom metrics on the application insights live metrics stream!

  18. Drag the components

    The components should be movable when viewing the Application map in Azure portal.

  19. "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance" should be ordered by Request Performance

    The second default graph on the Overview page for my ASP.NET web application is "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance".

    The data in the chart is currently sorted by request performance. To understand this chart currently, I have to read down the "Request performance" column and think about the duration that each of those rows represents, and whether that's acceptable or not. I can't tell anything "at a glance".

    If the chart was instead sorted by the request, I could glance at the "shape" of the chart, and see that most requests are acceptable (<250ms) but some are in…
