  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    Need bi-directional integration for Azure Monitor with ITSM solution, following should be the features,
    1. When auto ticketing triggered from smart groups of azure monitor, once ticket created in ITSM solution, the incident number should be updated in one of the field in Azure monitor view.

  15. Azure monitor - Additional dimensions for application insights metrics

    Good day,

    Can you please add additional dimensions like "urlHost" to Application insights metric alerts. (Microsoft.Insights/Components)
    It's a more effective way to monitor a service that has multiple hosts behind a load balancer.

    Thanks

  16. Setting old autoscale rule to disabled to not block autoscale when new autoscale profile is deployed with arm templates

    When autoscaling rules exist on a service (cpu based for instance) and a new one is deployed with the help of an arm template there is no clarity in which rule is actually working, if any of them are enabled at this point.
    My suggestion to fix this is to disable the old rule if the new rule arrives to autoscale with enabled equals to true. If not, keep the old one as it is.

  18. Dry run autoscaling to monitor its behaviour without actually scaling

    Feature: An option to dry run AutoScaling.

    Why: Using custom metrics we need to validate that its behaviour concurs with what we expect, to a dry run feature in which everything is done except the actual autoscaling part.

  19. Allow custom Y-axis range per metric

    When using multiple metrics with different units in a single chart most of them are too small or too big to be displayed properly. By customizing the Y-axis range per metric it would be possible to create a more useful chart.
