  1. Azure network performance monitor keeps sending the packets to the deallocated VM.

    Azure Network Performance Monitor keeps sending the test packets to the deallocated VMs and causes the false alert issue. Since the VM is shut down and will not respond to the test traffic, the packet loss ratio of the subnet link will be marked as 100% while there's no network performance issue. It would be best if Azure adjusts the NPM and make sure deallcated VMs will not get any test packets.

  2. enable custom log in container

    There is no way to collect custom log on container. In order to collect various kinds of log files on containers, We strongly desire to add this feature to Azure Monitor.

  3. Enable setting VM Insights Health default configurations at scale

    VM Insight Health default configuration for monitors can't be directly changed (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/insights/vminsights-health-configure-dcr). Overrides can only be defined in the monitor configuration for individual virtual machines. To make the solution scalable, we need to both change the defaults and apply overrides to groups/scopes, not individual computers.

  4. Make File Share dimension available for monitoring the standard storage accounts

    This dimension is only available for premium storage accounts, which in turn, have their own functional restrictions. It should not be asking too much to expect that the file share dimension be made available to be monitored separately.

    As of now, the work-around is to create separate storage accounts for each share, in order to monitor each such share separately.

    I had a case open with Microsoft support regarding this. Please see the case reference: REG:121011024000358

  6. Activate Azure Monitor for AKS without collecting container STDOUT logs in Azure Analytics Workspace

    It would be nice to activate Azure Monitor for AKS without collecting container STDOUT logs in Azure Log Analytics, I usually only use the Live Log feature, meanwhile the size of the logs in Azure Log Analytics keep increasing and therefore the price. If I could activate Azure Monitor, see my container stdout logs with the Live Log feature and do not collect the logs in Azure Log Analytics Workspace that'll be great.

  7. Azure Storage capacity metrics update hourly

    Azure storage metrics are only refreshed daily (every 24 hours) even though they are sent hourly. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/monitor-blob-storage-reference#capacity-metrics
    This means that any alert configured on capacity metrics may trigger up to 24 hours after the threshold has been breached.

    Please change it to be refreshed hourly

  8. Add support for VM Insights in South Africa North and West

    Please advise when VM Insights will be available for Virtual Machines and Log Analytics Workspaces hosted in South Africa North and West. This is a feature that many clients want for full monitoring and don't want to have to send their data cross-region.

  9. Deleting a VM's Data Collection Rule Association doesn't stop it logging to a log analytics workspace

    Adding a Virtual Machine as a "resource" to a Data Collection Rule creates a Data Collection Rule Association, which triggers an install of the Azure Monitor Agent, which allows logs to be sent to the associated logs analytics workspace.

    On removing the VM as a resource on the Data Collection Rule, it would be expected that logs would stop appearing in the logs workspace from that VM, however the logs continue to appear. This seems like a bug.

    mdsd is responsible for sending the logs, and should receive updated configuration when the VM is removed from the Data Collection Rule…

  10. Allow Export or move of Log Analytics Workspace to different Region/Workspace

    Allow the export of a log analytics workspace into a different log analytics workspace in another region. Currently, log analytics workspaces cannot be migrated to different regions. Due to feature differences in regions this can become a difficult issue to resolve if a feature that was not an initial requirement becomes a requirement after the fact. Due to the changing landscape of needs and desires over time, deleting a log analytics workspace after incredible investment can become a roadblock. Ideally, the ability to move a log analytics workspace from one region to another would be a fantastic feature.

  12. Diagnostic settings not being a part of a Resource Group

    Currently diagnostic settings are not a part of a resource group in Azure, this is uncommon and was wondering if there are plans to move these settings into a RG like most other resources.

    In the case of our use, we use terraform to provision these onto app services and azure SQL, which are by definition regional. I think it makes sense for diagnostic settings to follow this methodology.

    The issue we face is when destroying RG's the settings are not taken out, we need to run adhoc scripts to remove them.

  13. Allow more intelligent auto-scale (scale in) for virtual machine instances

    Azure auto-scale is metric driven. Can it be expanded to allow smarter scaling in to prevent removal of a server that is busy doing work?
    E.g. can a scale-in policy be defined to scale-in based on the standard metrics of CPU/RAM etc. but to also check if the server is busy. This could be done by supporting a webservice call or executing a run-book or other to check status.
    It would save having to emit a custom metric from the servers, whose only purpose would be to indicate 'I'm busy - don't scale me in'.

  14. Azure Monitor Agent (Linux) stopped logging to logs workspace

    We have Linux VMs with Azure Monitor Agent installed (via adding the VM to a Data Collection Rule).

    Logs stopped appearing in the logs workspace from one VM (others continued to log to the workspace).

    Neither a reboot of the VM nor restarting mdsd restored the logging to the workspace.

    We got logs:
    [DAEMON] Error: unexpected user id 0. Do nothing.

  15. Linux Syslog Data Source filtering doesn't take effect.

    Azure Monitor Agent on a Linux VM doesn't filter logs according to log level on the corresponding data collection rule.

    Each log facility has a minimum log level in the Data Collection Rule Data Source.
    We observe:
    Minimum Log Level "None": No logs from that facility appear in workspace
    Minimum Log Level not "None": All logs from that facility appear in workspace

    e.g. if LOG_LOCAL0 is set to LOG_ERR we continue to get lower log levels (e.g. LOG_DEBUG) from that facility in the logs workspace.

  19. Provide API to list alert history of new alerts

    Provide an API to allow to list history of alerts raised and be able to filter by SCOPE filter.

    Actually we can list of alerts raised but it list only classic alerts :
    Get-AzAlertHistory -StartTime 2020-10-30T11:00:00 -EndTime 2020-11-11T12:00:00
