  1. Document Azure Monitor security model

    There does not seem to be a good reference as to the security model for Azure monitoring at the moment I am making assumptions which is not great when designing an architecture.

    Presumably there is only a level of data in the alert (ie not contextual in terms of IP addresses, database names, contains data from system etc?).

    In terms of the above if not where is data stored (presumably it is shared and not dedicated to a subscription), who has access to this data.

    These are questions we will be asked in terms of compliance, i cant see anything…

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  2. Support Hyphens in Azure Monitor Log Ingestion/Log Analytics

    Currently Azure Monitor (formerly Log Analytics) does not support ingesting log file names including the hyphen symbol. Many applications generate log files with this name (often to handle date/time separations)

  3. Make it possible to modify automatically generated VM Insights alerts.

    The new VM Insights experience is great, and fills a void in VM monitoring. Now we can finally get an overview of full disk etc.

    We would like to modify or add the alertrule for these alerts to get notified on Teams/Webhook/mail etc.

  4. Support for RBAC enabled clusters

    Hi,
    the FAQ states that RBAC enabled clusters are not supported by Azure Monitor yet, but on the other hand https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/azure-monitor/insights/container-insights-live-logs already has instructions how to enable live logs for RBAC clusters. This requires Azure Monitor to run.
    Can you provide an estimate when RBAC clusters will be fully supported?

  5. Web App for Containers Monitoring

    I would like better support for container monitoring in Web App for Containers so that Docker logs (lifecycle, etc) are more available. Perhaps better integration with Application Insights and / or integration with Container Insights..

  6. Advisor Recommendations performance warning - results in killed pids on small VMs

    I have enabled Advisor Recommendations on Ubuntu 18.04 B1s size VM which resulted in frequent outages, CPU spiking to 100% for a period of 45 minutes and increased IO. Support have confirmed logs show killed s
    pids due to memory pressure. Granted it's a tiny VM but portal should either not allow to install Advisor on such small VMs or at least give a noticeable warning in the Portal. Moreover, the advisor is not easy to remove via Portal.

    Sorry that you’re experiencing these issues. Azure Advisor does not install anything on VMs in order to provide recommendations. Can you provide additional details that will help us route this issue correctly? Thanks!

  7. Azure monitor - Include tags in webhook payload

    It would be useful to have resource tags included in the webhook payload when generating an alert. It will add additional context.

    Thanks

  8. Audit Tag Deletion

    We had issue where audit tags were deleted from resource, then searching logs can't find out how to check for TAG deletion.
    Require Better auditing of TAGS.

    Solution from MS made no reference to delete, just string with no delete reference

  9. monitor for container should allow log filtering

    For monitoring containers in AKS, It would be usefull to be able to filter the logs that will be stored in the OMS Workspace. Some logs (from certain pods for example) are not relevant for me in the OMS Workspace, but I would like to access them with 'kubectl logs...' command.
    Now I need to disable them, not to generate extra OMS costs.

  10. Remove resolved findings

    It would be great if the resolved findings would go away. Giving me 4 pages of results that never go away is impossible to manage.

    Thanks. Advisor does remove resolved recommendations, although there can be a short lag, typically less than a day. If you’re seeing recommendations still in the list after several days, please let us know.

  11. free tier

    Bring back the free tier so customers can try Azure Monitor for free.

  12. Allow editing of JSON payload for webhooks on Azure Monitor-based alerts

    If an Alert rule is based on an Application Insights query and one of the action groups is a Webhook, then I am able to customize the JSON payload sent to the Webhook.

    I would like the same feature for Azure monitor-based alerts, please.

  13. Add signal logic support for period of 7 days and frequency of every 24 hours

    Currently, triggers are limited to a maximum period of 24 hours with the longest period between checks as 1 hour. Please increase the permitted period to 7 days and allow a frequency of every 24 hours.

    In my case, I want to check for idle storage accounts by looking for ingress/egress under a certain threshold over the past week. Checking only the last 24 hours doesn't work as I have tasks which only write data to storage once per week.

  15. Filter the logs published to Eventhub

    When publishing log events (diagnostic), there should be a way to filter the logs. Many times, all the logs need not be published to Event Hub so that the target systems consuming the events will have the right events to process.

  16. App Service Plan storage monitoring

    We would like to set up a metric alert that fires when the File system storage of an App Service plan is reaching its 80% limits.

  17. 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.

  18. Remove the requirement to use the bin() function for KQL queries feeding a 'Metric measurement' alert rule

    The following KQL is not accepted in the a 'Metric measurement' alert rule's GUI, as it does not employ the bin() function (nor does it need to):

    Heartbeat
    | where OSType == 'Windows'
    | summarize TimeOfLastHeartbeat = arg_max(TimeGenerated, Computer) by SourceComputerId
    | extend AggregatedValue = ((now() - TimeOfLastHeartbeat) / 1m)
    | render table

    I ended up having to feed in the following query for it to work:

    Heartbeat
    | where OSType == 'Windows'
    | summarize arg_max(TimeGenerated, Computer) by SourceComputerId
    | extend Age = bin(((now()-TimeGenerated) / 1m),1)
    | summarize AggregatedValue = max(Age) by Computer, bin(TimeGenerated,1s)
    | render table

    I think that…

  19. Add Japan region workspace option for Azure Monitor for VMs - Performance

    Currently we can set the workspace which is deployed on the four regions in order to show the data on Azure Monitor for VMs -Performance. (These four regions is not including Japan region.) I suspect this case an opportunity loss since there are a lot of customers in not only Japan but also APAC, who is using Japan resource. It would be great if we can show the data on Azure Monitor for VMs – Performance in Japan region as well.
