Ignore Microsoft generated internal events caused by an App Service's 'Always On' feature so the application insights feed is not cluttered
When Always ON is selected for an App service App, Microsoft send a keep alive 'Get /' to the app every 5 mins that clutters up the Application insights feed with events that are reality an internal system function and not related to 'real traffic'. (Real Get / events would want to be recorded). Could this traffic be ignored by insights rather than needing to implement filtering based upon the request source and type.

Yup, in the 2.x SDK we now have SyntheticUserAgentTelemetryInitializer that by default is configured to mark requests with "AlwaysOn" as user-agent as synthetic.

I think this is a duplicate and someone mentioned that a fix was in latest sdk to ignore AlwaysOn requests
