  1. Diagnostic settings not being a part of a Resource Group

    Currently diagnostic settings are not a part of a resource group in Azure, this is uncommon and was wondering if there are plans to move these settings into a RG like most other resources.

    In the case of our use, we use terraform to provision these onto app services and azure SQL, which are by definition regional. I think it makes sense for diagnostic settings to follow this methodology.

    The issue we face is when destroying RG's the settings are not taken out, we need to run adhoc scripts to remove them.

  2. User want to check the Disk throttling from the Metric

    If disk throttling has happened, the user want to check it from the metric in Azure portal.

    Current:
    ・ Check to IOPS from Data Disk Read (write) Operations
    ・ Check the throughput if it is flattened near a certain value

  3. Support Event Hub GeoDR Alias as a Logging Destination

    Geo Recovery DR Aliases are a tool that create a failover group between Primary and Secondary EH Namespaces.

    Also, diagnostic settings can be applied to resources and can be streamed to Event Hubs as an endpoint. However, it is not possible currently to send logs to an Event Hub GeoDR Alias, that would end up in Primary Namespace, and would switch to Secondary namespace if the first is offline. Similar behavior of that of a SQL Failover Group.

    This feature would be ideal and would solve the issue of resources not being able to write to an Event Hub in…

  4. 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.

  5. 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)

  9. 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

  10. 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).

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  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?

  15. 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

  17. Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100

    Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100, which easily reachable, as there are number of Azure services use by organisation which need to monitored. I have this issue in two organisations quota of 100 is not sufficient. As there is limit for Alerts as well but that limit can be increased on request, I have escalated this issue with Microsoft i got the answer this is product limitation unfortunately they are not able to increase the limit.

  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

  20. Workbooks: Reordering [Added Column] in Merge datasets

    When creating an [Added Column] in a Merge dataset, the column always goes to the end of the list. If you move it to the top of the list, it does not change the order of of the columns as displayed.

    Related, it would be nice to be able to specify the name of an added column as you add it, rather than it always being named [Added Column] and having to be renamed afterwards.

    Less related, it would be nice to be able to adjust the widths of columns in a workbook.
