  2. The documentation for the metrics in Azure need to be documented in a much better way as it currently is close to non-existant.

    Documentation is desperately needed for the metrics in Azure. For example, the Response time avg graphs in Metrics, Performance, Live Metrics, etc.

    I would like to know exactly where they start to measure and when the measurement ends.

  3. 1 sms/5 minute limit needs to increased/removed for user friendliness in services.

    In case of VM restart alerts,The 1 SMS / 5 minute limit needs to be increased/removed in order for the service to be useful.
    What is the reason behind this limit?

    When we initially shipped this feature the rate limiting was 1 SMS / 1 minute. Customer feedback was that 1 SMS was enough to alert the user that they need to log into the portal to investigate what’s going on. The other SMS were just noise.

    We have to have a rate limit in place for telecommunications regulatory reasons. A lot of countries regulate how many SMS may be sent to a particular phone number per-minute. If a sender exceeds that limit wireless carriers will blacklist the sender.

  4. Have monitoring at an instance level for virtual machine scale sets

    Right now monitoring for Azure VM Scale Sets is limited to aggregate values. It would be great to be able to see instance level metrics like CPU, RAM, etc.
    The current workaround is to use a third party tool like new relic for this, but it would be good to have as a native feature

  5. Single alert for all App Service Plans - CPU Metric

    We have many app service plans in our subscription. Instead of creating an alert rule per service plan we would like to create a single alert to monitor CPU usage on all service plans.

    Thank you

  6. 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…

  8. Add Usage metrics to Azure Monitor for Container Registries

    Currently, Azure Container Registry exposes the following metric via Azure Monitor:


    • Run Duration

    • Successful Pull Count

    • Successful Push Count

    • Total Pull Count

    • Total Push Count

    Through the portal it's also possible to see the usage quota included in SKU and space used by repositories.
    Please expose Usage metrics in Azure Monitor.

  9. Modify Monitor Alerts limitation on Update Management

    Currently Azure Monitor Alerts for update management do not support custom subject line on emailed alerts.
    We're looking to include VM name for the failed patches(VMs with failed windows/Linux update) in the subject line of the alerts that's been emailed.

  11. Allow email notifications to be sent directly to Microsoft Teams

    Right now the only way to send alert notifications to MS Teams is by either using a logic app or sending emails to a specific user then forwarding them to a Teams channel. Please consider implementing a functionality that will allow Azure alert notifications to be sent directly to MS Teams

  13. Allow users to download End to End Transaction chart with events in Azure Portal

    It would be really helpful if we allows users to download the end to end transaction chart with series of events in Azure portal. Right now it is read only and only wait to get it printed is through Analytics screen, but from there we will loose the visualization which shows time division by events,

  14. Add the country code +32 (Belgium) for SMS alerting

    SMS alerting integrated into a full monitoring solution is great but should include more countries. Please add +32 from Belgium

  15. 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.

  17. Decrease alert latency

    Notification latency limit should be less than 5 minutes because it can be a value too high for critical alerts. In particular, I think average value should be less than alert rule frequency.
    On other cloud providers, average latency is of the order of (few) seconds

  18. Dependency agent for containers

    Hi, it would have been nice to have support for dependency agent running in a container. I understand that it will be some challenges when it comes to IP's but there are other ways grab the source/destination of a container.

  19. Azure Storage capacity metrics update hourly

    Azure storage metrics are only refreshed daily (every 24 hours) even though they are sent hourly. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/monitor-blob-storage-reference#capacity-metrics
    This means that any alert configured on capacity metrics may trigger up to 24 hours after the threshold has been breached.

    Please change it to be refreshed hourly

  20. Deleting a VM's Data Collection Rule Association doesn't stop it logging to a log analytics workspace

    Adding a Virtual Machine as a "resource" to a Data Collection Rule creates a Data Collection Rule Association, which triggers an install of the Azure Monitor Agent, which allows logs to be sent to the associated logs analytics workspace.

    On removing the VM as a resource on the Data Collection Rule, it would be expected that logs would stop appearing in the logs workspace from that VM, however the logs continue to appear. This seems like a bug.

    mdsd is responsible for sending the logs, and should receive updated configuration when the VM is removed from the Data Collection Rule…
