  1. 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.

  2. Support Wildcard expressions for folders for Custom Logs

    When configuring Custom Logs, wildcard matching is supported only for files. This is not useful when configuring logging for self hosted OCP as the default path in such case would be: /var/lib/docker/containers/<container-ID>/<container-ID>-json.log.
    Hence having the option to configure wildcard expressions will help in collecting Container application logs.

  3. Changing Tracking and Update Management?

    New Azure Monitor Agent attempts to consolidate all existing monitoring agents into one single agent. According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/azure-monitor-agent-overview, Log Analytics Agent is one the agents which is being replaced with new one. While new agent does indeed provide some log shipping capabilities, it does not implement all the features of the former agent. For example current Log Analytics Agent is also being used for other services, such as Changing Tracking and Update Management https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/log-analytics-agent#other-services and allows integration with Azure Automation. New agent seems does not mention anything about those features. Data Collection Rules only allow the shipment of system…

  4. 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.

  5. Azure Monitor Agent performance counters collection on Ubuntu 18.04 Vms not working

    I have Azure monitor agent installed on a Ubuntu VM in Azure eastus and its not gathering performance counter data

    root@markstestVM1205Thu:/var/log/azure# cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIBID=Ubuntu DISTRIBRELEASE=18.04 DISTRIBCODENAME=bionic DISTRIBDESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS" root@markstestVM1205Thu:/var/log/azure# uname -av Linux markstestVM1205Thu 5.4.0-1036-azure #38~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 6 18:26:30 UTC 2021 x8664 x8664 x86_64 GNU/Linux

  6. 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.

  10. Configure whether alerts should fire when data in lookback window is incomplete

    Currently, alert rules will fire when the condition(s) are met, even when the data for the lookback window is incomplete.

    Here's an example:
    An alert rule is configured for CPU Percentage > 90% with a 15-minute lookback window, splitting by VM resource dimension. A new VM is created with 100% CPU for the first minute, and the alert rule is evaluated at the end of the first minute. The alert rule currently triggers, even though there was only 1 minute worth of data (data is incomplete).

    The desire here is to be able to configure whether the alert rule should…

  11. Include Windows Defender Logs in Windows Event Logs

    Windows Defender Operational Logs are not available when using the Windows Event Logs. Specifically, these logs:
    Microsoft-Windows-Windows Defender Operational

    It would be great if this could be included.
