Feature Enhancements - Metric alert multiple dimensions request
While using Azure monitor during the development, we found there are lots of limitations/by design in the metric alert dimension feature, please help have a look and share with us if any plan to enhance or release the features:
Our objective is to try make alerts better by looking at two metrics at the same time. This can be achieved by using ‘Split by dimension’ already available in Azure Monitor.
Both the below options will allow us to configure Azure monitor in such a way that criticality of the alert is decided within and we don’t get alerted unnecessarily:
1. Combination : Server Response time and Count of Successful Request (For example: Alert when Response time > 3 seconds & count of successful request > 20 in last 5 minutes)
2. Combination : Count of Failed Request and Count of Total Requests (For example: Alert when count of failed request > 5 & Count of successful request > 20 in last 5 minutes)
a. For metric “Failed requests (Platform)” , add another dimension “Count of Total Requests” so that can be added under ‘Split by dimensions’.
b. For metric “Server response time (Platform)” , add another dimension “Count of Successful Requests” so that can be added under ‘Split by dimensions’.
I believe it's not only 1 user but also other customers need this necessary feature. I understand it's available to implement with log search alert, but usually it will also with data ingestion latency. Thus metric alert is the best choice I believe.
