  1. Update Management from Azure Monitor

    Much like with having a single pane glass of view for Azure Monitor Alerts, Log Analytics Workspaces, Virtual Machines etc... it would also be great to have a central Update Management view that spanes multiple Update Management solutions and Automation Accounts

  2. Smart Detection Rules Alerting - Resource Group

    The current alerts for Smart Detection rules send emails to the monitoring groups at a subscription level. Our company uses a single subscription for the entire company.

    It would be nice to send emails to the monitoring roles at the resource group level instead of (or in addition to) the subscription level

  3. Get logprofile on Azure Monitor for the subscription using resource graph query

    I need to retrieve log profiles associated with each subscription in a runbook.
    There's no documentation or module associated on creating the graph query for getting the logprofile.

  4. I want existing memory monitoring classic alert rules to be migrated with the migration tool.

    As described in the following public information, existing memory monitoring classic alert rules are not currently migrated from classic alerts and are supported by Log Analytics.

    Classic alert rules that will not be migrated
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/alerts-understand-migration#classic-alert-rules-that-will-not-be-migrated

    I originally heard it as automatic migration, so I would like the existing memory monitoring classic alert rules to be subject to automatic migration, or at least implemented as a migration target in the migration tool.

  6. Azure Monitor for Containers Prometheus support to mimic Prometheus scrape behaviour more closely

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/azure-monitor-for-containers-with-prometheus-now-in-preview/

    I know this feature is still under development but it seems it doesn't scrape kubernetes pods in exactly the same way that Prometheus does. I've noticed that it requires the "prometheus.io/port" annotation whereas Prometheus tries to scrape the pod's service ports without this annotation- a lot of helm charts will only have the "prometheus.io/scrape" annotation as a result.

    Thank you!

  9. Add Memory Usage Percentage and CPU Usage Percentage from the metrics tab

    Right now I can only see memory and cpu percentage from "Diagnose and Solve Problems."
    I should be able to just create a graph from the metrics tab and then pin it to my dashboard. You guys are hiding this so that I don't scale down. This is a dark pattern.

  10. Use content checksum for signatures in HTTP Data Collector API

    The HTTP data collector API uses the Content-Length as part of the string-to-sign for clients POSTING data to Azure Monitor. From a security perspective, wouldn't it be better if were to use a computed checksum on the content?

    Thanks,
    Vijay

  13. Add feature, to allow suppress of EVENTs based on number of Occurences

    Add feature, to allow suppress of EVENTs based on number of Occurences.
    Useful for isntance, when NW or subnet goes down, and there are X number of ping issues, or HealtCheck that normally creates tickets, without this kind of suppress it would create lets say 100s of alarms but with that suppress logic it would suppress the (100 alarms of not pingable or healthckeck issue) to create only ONE alarm that possible NW outage. or Global Healtcheck issue - saving troubleticket tools from processing large quantities of tickets that have same root cause.

  14. retiring custom metrics without a sufficient replacement is having a wide impact on customers

    I know we're pulling classic metrics aug 31 (latest date). ny replacement for this requires the use of custom metrics, which isn't supported in very many regions (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/metrics-custom-overview#supported-regions).
    As an SE, I've had to tell people they are just out of luck until MS supports customer metrics in more regions.

    We are negatively impacting customers by pulling the plug on this items before having a comparable replacement. If I'm mistaken, please let me know the alternative.

  15. Improve pricing option UI

    It is strange that the three OMS options are available for selection when creating a new workspace with no explanation. There should be some kind of verification step or at the very least a clear explanation that those options are typically not available for new workspaces. Having 3 out of 4 options be effectively unavailable to new customers is inviting confusion.

  16. targerResourceType support for VM only but not any other providers

    When targetResourceType is set to App Service Plan scopes and I got the following error.
    {"Code":"BadRequest","Message":"For the resource type Microsoft.Web/serverfarms, selecting only one resource is supported."}

    There is no way to deploy any other provider metric monitoring at Resource Group Level or Subscription using ARM template, Azure Cli and Powershell such as Database, App service plan, App Gateway ..basically except VM.

    If we need to apply App Service Plan CPU and Memory metrics for 10 App Service Plans, it means that we need to write individual 10 ASP x 2 metrics alerts. Total individual metric alerts will be 20 such…

  17. Add time parameters to Alerts

    We have a number of alerts (a large number actually) to monitor the % of cpu usage. This gives us an indication if something is going wrong or if a server is undersized. Also, we run batch jobs late at night/early morning. So high cpu usage is expected during our batch job runs.

    The trouble is the batch jobs create a lot of useless alerts since this it is expected that they will use a lot of cpu.

    My request would be able to set up time-base parameters for alerts. For example, I'd like an alert that is effective between…

  18. Add the ability to run webhook repeatedly if alert conditions are sustained

    Right now there is no option to force the resolve of Alert monitoring status.

    This is odd specially because we are forced to use alerts for vertical autoscale.

    So if you want to have multi-steps autoscale, you have to configure several alerts, with different times/tresholds, because there is no way to set an alert to resolved.

    For example you need to downscale a VM, you set an alert to trigger the webhook when the CPU is 30% or less for 15 minutes, the alert triggers, the downscale is made, but just 1 time. Because the alert is never set to…

  19. 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…

  20. 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?
