  1. ignore specific exceptions

    I keep getting false positives in smart detection, because our WCF services return a custom fault in certain situations. These faults are not failures, but part of normal execution.
    It would be nice if we could tell SmartDetection to ignore specific faults/exceptions.

  2. Add Date-Time Range for Smart Detection Failure Anomalies Analysis Page

    When looking at the failure anomalies page, it would be nice to be able to select a date/time range. We've noticed a trend in a specific failure over time, but when looking at the failure anomalies analysis page, we can only see data for the last 12 hours. Being able to go back days or months would allow us to visualize a trend in this request that keeps failing, without losing the Detection Analysis summaries.

    Thanks for reaching out to us. Currently both Failure anomalies and Smart Detection features have Time range in the UI based on which the graphs change, Are you referring that feature is not catering your needs. If so, could you please explain you scenario so that we can take your feedback and prioritize with our existing Feature backlog accordingly.

  5. Smart Detection to provide more details into .NET processes

    We have a WebAPI2 project that is spawning memory & CPU warnings - SmartDetection shows the metrics and when they occurred.

    However, there's no actionable details - like which .NET objects are consuming memory, or what API calls are generating CPU utilization.

  9. Application Insights Diagnose Slow Startup

    Have application insights track the time between a shutdown and restart and determine what is causing an application to take time to startup.

  10. Define maintenance time period for Smart Detection

    We have a daily maintenance period to restart web pools (2:00am-2:05am), so during the warmup periods we are getting false positives in Smart Detection and a lot of email alerts. It would be very helpful to define a time period for pausing the Smart Detection per Application.

  11. Let us remove Smart Detection items or filter out localhost requests

    I'd like to be able to remove items from Smart Detection I have investigated and/or solved. Also, I need to filter out localhost as development on localhost skews response times

  12. Add additional email recipient for alerts and apply it to all alerts

    At the moment if you want to add an additional recipient to the alerts you have to manually edit all alerts. A setting can be added to apply a list of email recipients to all alerts.

  13. Send Smart Detection emails in a more timely manner

    Smart detection emailed me for a brief duration problem, but I did not receive the email until over three hours after the end of the detection.

  14. Use deep links in Smart Detection emails

    Received an email today from Smart Detection, but the "see analysis of the issue" and "configure" links just go to my Azure portal main page. I am already logged in to Azure in that browser. So if these are deep links they are not working for some reason.

  15. Would like the ability to display dates in clients time zone in smart detections.

    Currently smart detection shows dates in UTC. We would like the ability to set the time zone for display purposes only.. or use timezone based on the client browsers time zone

  16. Make "New Work Item" send to a webhook

    As we use Target Process rather than Github or VSTS I would like a new work item to send to something we control so we can generate work items

  17. Enable segmentation of a web application in AI

    It should be possible to segment a website into different areas. Only data within an area should be used for smart detection and other features.

    For example
    In a website there might be two areas, the normal User website that's available to normal users, and another area, the Admin site which is used by administrators.
    It is not useful to be told that a page doing some maintenance task in the admin portal is doing much worse than all other pages...it is supposed to run for a long time!

  18. Exclude the first few requests/events for each url/page/resource after a restart when evaluating Smart Detection, since those are not repres

    Exclude the first few requests/events for each url/page/resource after a restart when evaluating Smart Detection.

    The initial requests to a url/page/resource typically take much longer time than what is normal.
    So the timing and measurements of the initial requests to a page/url only misleads the Smart Detection evaluation and produces a lot of random and useless results.

    Suggestion
    1. Figure out when a resource is restarted (probably the same time that AI is initialized).
    2. Keep an internal dictionary for requests, dependencies and other stuff. Reset when restarted.
    3. Every time a request/dependency/resource is processed by AP, add it to…

  19. Allow us to annotate the smart detection alerts

    Once you determine the issue in the smart detection screen, then be able to annotate the alert. That way, other team members that come to the site to review these alerts know that they should not be working on troubleshooting or investigating them anymore.

  20. Blacklist traffic

    We get emails on a daily basis about increased failures that all tend to fall into a bucket that have traits that could be blocked entirely. The one that triggered this post was listed as:

    Operating System: Scrapy 1.0
    Source of Synthetic Traffic: Scrapy

    The ability to blacklist that traffic across my subscription, and for Azure to keep and make available data on repeat offenders to either automatically block the traffic or at least give us the option to view repeat offenders and block the traffic on a case-by-case basis would be a huge improvement in the Azure ecosystem.
