Azure Monitor

Azure Monitor Action Groups enable you to configure how to receive notifications when an Azure Monitor Alert is triggered.

How can we improve Azure Monitor?

  1. Provide granular Activity Log event operations

    For most service providers (if not all), it is not possible to identify Create from Update operations from Activity Log events, they are all provided under a generic "write" operation, which doesn't allow proper event-driven solutions to be built.

    It would be great to be able to set up granular alerts for each operation type and receive it on the webhook's payload as well.

    • monitor export

      We can see some metrics from Monitor Service.
      But it doesn't have a export UI on Azure Portal against Metrics.(Activity log has export UI.)
      Exporting these metrics is usefull for point of customer side system monitoring.

      • Make it configurable for the time interval for the resource was unavailable for

        Hi team,

        Currently, we provisioning resource health alerts via ARM to monitor the health status of our vms, per the recommended template here:

        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-health/resource-health-alert-arm-template-guide#recommended-resource-health-alert-template

        We are receiving multiple alerts while stopping a VM for the same event (status change: available => unavailable). We don't want to receive so many alerts for the same event. We are also seeing other users are having the same issue. https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/20560

        And we've found one of the event alerts was "Down: Virtual machine has been unavailable for 15 minutes"
        which seems to be very helpful for us to use. But 15 minutes is too long…

        • Time range for Metrics Explorer

          Currently we could not display the over 30 days of metrics graph at once.
          If we want to display 93 days, we cannot display at once, so display at multiple times. I want you to support display the graph in maximum 93 days.

            • Allow to select all alerts at once

              In the "All Alerts" view (see path below) it would be very helpful to be able to select/deselect all (visible) alerts at once and to change the state once. This option is already available in another view (see path below). If there are many alerts it's very annoying to select them one by one.
              The attached screenshots show both views, where option is available and where it's not available.

              Path to view where "Select all" option is missing:
              Azure Portal > Monitor > Alerts > (choose severity) > All Alerts

              Path to view where "Select all" option is available:

              • Text Alerts in Azure Monitor Not Detailed

                Text Alerts in Azure Monitor are not detailed enough as only show the description of the alert and not the service or server effected by the issue.

                More detail on the Text Alerts to be added or potential options for customising Text Alerts to add and include information.

                  • Rework the standard support e-mail

                    The standard e-mail is not very good.

                    1. I have 6 different subscriptions to monitor. There is no way of knowing which subscription has triggered the alert, unless i memerize the GUID for the subscription.

                    2. Rule ID: Same thing. Use the name of the sub instead.

                    3. The link in the e-mail points to "the portal". Just the default page. Is there no way to point the user to at least some other page, nearer the actual error?

                    • Support action groups as an action for an alert rule

                      Support Microsoft.Insights/ActionGroups as an action for a Microsoft.Insights/alertRules

                      Action groups are supported elsewhere in Azure (e.g. Log Analytics and Azure Monitor) but not in Application Inisghts. It'd be great if we could use our action groups as a way to encapsulate our response to alerts from App Insights, OMS and Monitor.

                      Is this on the roadmap?

                      • On app service performance counters for TCP connections, don't filter by TCP state, instead show a line per type

                        Under "Diagnose and solve problems" > "Metrics per instance (Apps)" > "Perf Counters" > "TCPv4\ TCPv4 Connections Established"

                        It describes the graph as...
                        Connections Established is the number of TCP connections for which the current state is either ESTABLISHED or CLOSE-WAIT.

                        Can you instead show a line per state so we can understand if there are connection issues. And don't filter on just the above 2, show all.

                        Also, the description has "CLOSE-WAIT" as what it is showing, but the state in TCP is actually "CLOSE_WAIT", is there a possible bug with the filter and it is actually not showing…

                          • Add possibity to disable mail notification when a new action group is created

                            When you add email recipient to action group this recipient will obtain mail notification "You're now in the ... action group".

                            There is no possibility to disable it. It is annoying when environment is scripted and deployed multiple times.

                            Please add possibility to supress this notification.

                              • The documentation for the metrics in Azure need to be documented in a much better way as it currently is close to non-existant.

                                Documentation is desperately needed for the metrics in Azure. For example, the Response time avg graphs in Metrics, Performance, Live Metrics, etc.

                                I would like to know exactly where they start to measure and when the measurement ends.

                                • Metric Display Name and Threshold Name are confusing.

                                  I found that there are differences between Metric Display Name and Threshold Name for alert setting. E.g, about ExpressRoute, Metric is BitsInPerSecond but Threshold Name is CountPerSecond. I know those names mean same value. I think it's very confusing. I hope those name will be same name.

                                  • Log Alert can not mail notification about resolved or closing status

                                    Log alert will not be notified if alert is set to Close.
                                    Metric alerts can be notified when an alert is closed.
                                    Why does not log alert work the same way?

                                    Customers expect the same mechanism.
                                    Or are you planning to be installed in the future?
                                    Customers are comparing with Zabbix.
                                    If Azure can do the same thing as Zabbix, customers think that it is easy to switch from Zabbix.

                                    • Add the country code +32 (Belgium) for SMS alerting

                                      SMS alerting integrated into a full monitoring solution is great but should include more countries. Please add +32 from Belgium

                                      • Ignore completed jobs when evaluating Cluster Status for Container Insights

                                        Container Monitoring Solution UI shows false Critical / Warning status for AKS clusters with completed jobs.

                                        Those jobs are counted towards "Stopped user pods" on Cluster Overview, causing false critical indicators and making overview screen non-informative to those who have at least few jobs running.

                                        However, drill down to the Pods / Containers level for the cluster in false Critical state shows no errors or warning - as it shows job pods as Green/Completed.

                                        Please make the critical/warning check consistent with details grid and exclude stopped jobs from "failed" pods counter.
