  2. Azure monitor - Additional dimensions for application insights metrics

    Good day,

    Can you please add additional dimensions like "urlHost" to Application insights metric alerts. (Microsoft.Insights/Components)
    It's a more effective way to monitor a service that has multiple hosts behind a load balancer.

    Thanks

  3. Setting old autoscale rule to disabled to not block autoscale when new autoscale profile is deployed with arm templates

    When autoscaling rules exist on a service (cpu based for instance) and a new one is deployed with the help of an arm template there is no clarity in which rule is actually working, if any of them are enabled at this point.
    My suggestion to fix this is to disable the old rule if the new rule arrives to autoscale with enabled equals to true. If not, keep the old one as it is.

  5. Dry run autoscaling to monitor its behaviour without actually scaling

    Feature: An option to dry run AutoScaling.

    Why: Using custom metrics we need to validate that its behaviour concurs with what we expect, to a dry run feature in which everything is done except the actual autoscaling part.

  6. Allow custom Y-axis range per metric

    When using multiple metrics with different units in a single chart most of them are too small or too big to be displayed properly. By customizing the Y-axis range per metric it would be possible to create a more useful chart.

  8. Documentation Update Request for a definition list of all the configurable Activity Log Alerts

    Currently, We don't have a definition list of all the configurable Actitiy Log Alerts even though it is retrievable for users to get Activity Log alerts definition the users created by REST API.
    (e.g.,; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/monitor/activitylogalerts/listbyresourcegroup)

    if there is a new document regarding all of the definition,
    just like a list of configurable metric alerts (which can be accessed from: https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/azure/azure-monitor/platform/metrics-supported)

    it would be very helpful for users to find activity log alerts from each RPs.

  9. Update Analytics charts to work as smoothly as metrics charts

    Currently I have several dashboards that use Analytics charts, however they don't update with the time interval like metrics charts and they don't show the same point in time where you mouse is at like metrics charts do. And while I would love to switch to metrics, it simply does not have the ability to handle some of the operations I'm doing with Analytics, or easily add 16+ app insights resources to 10 different charts each.

  10. After Enabling the diagnostics agent on a Windows VM, custom metrics are not being sent to Azure Monitor

    After Enabling the diagnostics agent on a Windows VM, custom metrics are not being sent to Azure Monitor in a supported region. Therefore the custom metrics including the custom namespace (visible on the portal) is not available on the Azure Monitor API. An example request used to list namespaces:

    GET https://management.azure.com/{resourceUri}/providers/microsoft.insights/metricNamespaces?api-version=2017-12-01-preview

  11. 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)

  12. Allow Secure Webhook to be consumed by users athorised to the app as opposed the owner

    In an enterprise multiple subscription or resource group owners may with to send alerts to a central monitoring solution. This needs to utilise a secure webhooks to be able to authenticate the request. To use a secure webhook you have to create an application that is used to send the authentication header. The only people that can use the secure webhook are the Azure Application owners in Azure AD not the authorised users of the application. Hence to share a webhook across multiple subscriptions you have to make all subscription / resource group owners, owners of the Azure AD application…

  13. Azure Migrate - Assessment Module Notes Incorrect Branding

    Azure Monitoring Agent setup shows Operations Management Suite (OMS) branding rather than Azure Monitor branding. Replace OMS with Azure Monitor in Azure and in documentation.

  14. Filtering methods are too rudimentary on AML/Azure Monitoring performance counters

    Setting up CPU/GPU alerts are possible per node using, however this is not efficient as users can have tens or hundreds of nodes. Users would like to setup alerts and filter them based on experiment or cluster, this would be less work when users have close to hundred nodes.

  15. Enable stdout logs in OMS agent only for specific kuberentes deployments

    Currently, stdout/stderr log collection can only be configured on the namespace level. It would be useful if this could configured per deployment.

  16. update programmatically workbook(arm template)

    Hi guys, i

    now I have to work around to cleanup that specific workbook first and then deploy it again. Very helpful function would be the ability to update the workbook even if it exist.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  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.
