  1. Do not display a value until the correct value can be shown

    The Metrics for the App Service Plan is plotting out the graph as zero even though it later updates to correct value. This should be fixed so that NO VALUE is plotted until the actual correct value can be plotted.

    Why plot an incorrect value? Very confusing, especially for new users of Azure.

    No value is MUCH better than an INCORRECT value.

    We had a support case for this, and the response was that MS wants to plot out values as soon as possible eve though they are partial, which is great, but to show incorrect values is a VERY…

  2. Add an option for a demo of service health alert

    Currently, there is no demo option for service health alerts, and an user can receive alerts only when an actual incident occurs. However, some customers would like to check if the alert works properly before configuring it in a production environment. Therefore, it would be great if the user could fire a service helth alert as a test.

  3. Configure Network Performance Monitor with Powershell / API

    I have a large number of services I would like to monitor with NPM, and using the web GUI will be very tedious to enter (and manage) them all.

  7. setup individual disk drive low free space alert on subscription level

    The existing Metrics function only can trigger alert when overall disk drive space is low, but cannot monitoring and trigger alert when disk space running out when occurred in single drive space.

    Classic alert can do the individual drive monitoring but needed to re-config & setup it "per drive" on each machine repeatedly & hard to manage, it cannot do that by subscription or resource group level for bulk management.

    So would like to have this missing function "drive level free space monitoring" on Metrics.

  8. Azure Monitor Metrics: Chart Multiple Public DNS Zones

    Before multiple resources can be charted, I am given instructions to "filter your view to one location."

    This is impossible with Public DNS Zones because all zone locations are set to global. Selecting any location filters out all zone resources.

    Use Case: Calculating query costs across all zones within an entire resource group, which is tied to a specific contract.

  9. Wrong command in Azure Monitor Docs

    Documentation for Data collection for Azure Monitor for Containers contains incorrect command under "Verify configuration" section. The command in the document is "kubectl logs omsagent-fdf58 -n=kube-system", but it should be "kubectl logs omsagent-fdf58 -n kube-system", a space instead of equal sign.

  11. Modify Monitor Alerts limitation on Update Management

    Currently Azure Monitor Alerts for update management do not support custom subject line on emailed alerts.
    We're looking to include VM name for the failed patches(VMs with failed windows/Linux update) in the subject line of the alerts that's been emailed.

  12. Azure Elastic Job - Integrate job status with Azure Monitor

    Elastic Job status cannot be monitored in Azure Monitor, users have to run a query to get the job status. These are additional steps the user has to perform to get the data. Azure Monitor should have the ability to show Elastic Job statuses from SQL Database tables instead of user manually running the query.

  13. Full transparency when VMs are throttled

    Please allow us to learn when Azure decides to throttle disk/CPU resources. You already have the data. I'm just asking that you share it with the customer so we can build alerts based on that data. Your suggested solution of asking each user to run performance-monitoring services within the client to monitor disk throughput/CPU usage is straight from the Department of Redundancy Department.

    Monitor the limit and current use of Azure services using API or cmdlet (currently only available for compute, storage and networking resources using Get-AzVMUsage, Get-AZStorageUsage and Get-AzNetworkUsage) in order to generate alerts before reaching the limit of use / quota

  15. Log Analytics Batch ignoring records older than ~150 hours

    When using the HTTP Data Collector API to send batch records, it is processed and the log is created without errors. However if the record timestamps are older than 150 hours then they do not show up. Also, there is no indication they weren't imported or expedited. API should import batch records even if the timestamp is older than 150 hours.

  16. Redundancy for Metric alerts during outage

    During an outage, Azure Metric alerts cannot trigger Azure Functions. There should be a redundancy within action groups that point to functions so the alerts are not lost.

  18. Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100

    Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100, which easily reachable, as there are number of Azure services use by organisation which need to monitored. I have this issue in two organisations quota of 100 is not sufficient. As there is limit for Alerts as well but that limit can be increased on request, I have escalated this issue with Microsoft i got the answer this is product limitation unfortunately they are not able to increase the limit.

  19. Custom logs via azure cli

    Custom logs can be set up through the portal GUI or some roundabout methods building custom APIs. It would be great to be able to do this through the azure cli so it can be scripted/automated.

  20. FileServices metric 'timeSeries' alaways returning 0

    Constructing a FileService URI, calling 'ListByResourceAsync' function to get metrics and making sure the value is not null. The metric query should return either first or most recent value when timeSeries.FirstOrDefault() is called, but it always returns 0, failing to obtain any metric scraper for file storage.
