  1. Metric Display Name and Threshold Name are confusing.

    I found that there are differences between Metric Display Name and Threshold Name for alert setting. E.g, about ExpressRoute, Metric is BitsInPerSecond but Threshold Name is CountPerSecond. I know those names mean same value. I think it's very confusing. I hope those name will be same name.

  2. Please Have Autoscale Activity Log Show the Actual Rule That Triggered the Autoscale

    Please have Autoscale's Activity Log show the actual rule that triggered the autoscale event. Currently, it only shows profile but not actual rule.

  3. Ability to filter storage logs

    When there are a lot of calls to the storage the new diagnostic settings can be a bit too verbose and thus create a lot of Log Analytics costs. In my case it was so bad that Log Analytics cost more than the storage itself. There should be an option to filter out some actions / users before the logs are being sent over to Log Analytics.

  4. Configure Activity Log Diagnostic Settings Via Powershell or CLI

    Currently the only method is to use ARM to configure diagnostic settings for activity log
    As documented in here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/diagnostic-settings-template

    This is important feature, we always need the configuration for compliance reason and send the activity log to storage account.

    It will be helpful if we can use powershell or CLI to do the configuration, in legacy approach, we do have options to use Add-AzLogProfile (storage account and event hub) and New-AZOperationalInsightsAzureActivityLogDataSource (log analytics workspace)

  8. Support a Workbook parameter type of "Result Set"

    When building a notebook in Azure Monitor, it would be useful to have a parameter of "Result Set" that could be used as a base query that represents the set of data shared by multiple query controls within the workbook

  9. Include resource display name in Common Alert Schema

    It would be extremely useful if the Common Alert Schema included the case sensitive name (display name) of the resources it applies to rather than just the resourceIds (in alertTargetIDs).

  10. Log rotate for OMS Agent logs on disk

    Hi MS,

    can you guys add an option to do logrotating on the logfiles that are created by the OMS agent?

    i had multiple times that the logfile went over a few gigabytes.
    this was especially on linux.

    or, could it be possible to put the logfiles somewhere else by the installer or something?

  11. Prevent a KQL user from moving away from a modified query without saving it.

    In the KQL query window, prevent a user from moving away from a modified query without saving it. Currently, it is easy to click away from a modified query and lose your work. The query window should prompt you if you have unsaved changes to a query and try to navigate away.

  12. The MMA agent when updated, should honor the settings already setup.

    When you build a new server in azure, it will automatically come with the MMA agent extension. If you have a post installation script that is run when you build your servers that sets up a connection to lets say SCOM 2016 or 2019. The MMA extension will install the latest version of that agent and completely wipe out the settings you've already set on the agents. This should never happen.

    This is extremely frustrating when you've setup the agent to disable the APM flag, which AFAIK has still not been fixed for all versions of .NET, having this flag…

  13. Pass parameter values to Azure Monitor Workbook from outside

    I have a workbook that has some parameters defined. Looks like the default values of the parameters are set when creating the workbook. Can I change the default parameter values programatically, or by some other means before sharing the workbook with others?

  16. Clicking on a point in the metrics graph links directly to +/-5 mins error logs

    Rather than looking at the graph for a timestamp and then collecting logs from either Kudu or Storage it could link directly to the logs and open them for +/-5 minutes from the point clicked

  18. setup individual free disk space for all computers in log analytics workspace

    The existing metrics function only can monitor average counterValue for all computers but not for each computer, see attached file for metrics result.
    Per many customers request, they need use metrics to monitor individual free space value for all computers. that is, we need get counterValue for each computer in metrics separately when we choose all computers.

  19. Azure Monitor Dashboard - Filtering fails

    Filtering fails to display a dashboard created manually with 'all resource groups', need to select specific resource group instead. Need an ability to filter a specific resource from a dashboard that has all resource groups.

  20. workbooks with custom metrics is broken

    When trying to setup a new workbook based on custom metrics all metrics are shown with a name as "Virtual Machine Host"

    This makes it more or less impossible to create a workbook based on custom metrics.
