        Sorry, I actually gave up on using MSI.

                  If all of your client connections are to the region your application is deployed in then your application will always use the Cosmos DB replica in the closest region which is the same region you are deployed in.

                  If you are replicating to a second region the way you would load balance this is to deploy your application into that same region and configure it to point to it, then use Traffic Manager in front of your application to load balance client requests to the closest region that hosts your application.

                  If this is not what you are asking or suggesting please feel free to provide more information and we can assist.

                  Thanks.

                  The replica is setup more for DR purposes but there is no option to run the secondary at reduced RUs so that is potentially a lot of wasted resource and money. If I am using something like Power BI Service then I don't get a lot of say in where the application runs from. You are assuming a 3 Tier Architecture but Cosmos is not just being used for apps and websites. Data Analytics applications are often 2 Tier and more taxing on the database.

                    By "monitor" I mean individual queries and the focus on this suggestion was actually meant to be on the "killing" part. Its not hard to end up with rogue queries chewing up the RUs.

                        A trigger based on "Number of requests exceeded capacity" metric would be useful too. Logic flow might look something like if number of requests exceeds capacity > n then increase RU throughput by 10% with a maximum of x RUs.

                          Occurs when timestamp is a string but not when a number. Range indexing is used on string by default. Otherwise, performance of range query on timestamp is similar for both number and string formats.

                            My partition keys are GUIDs in order to evenly distribute eclectic data over the partitions. I therefore do not know the keys upfront and "DISTINCT partitionKey" is of no use.

                            Ian Bennett commented  · 

                            Also, it looks like the node.js SDK does not support passing of partition keys when executing a stored procedure.

                                  For partitioned collections it would be good if autoscale would work on a per partition basis to keep costs down. RU allocation across every partition can be inefficient as in the following examples.

                                  1. RU allocation applies to all replicas. Using node.js SDK, it is not possible to direct queries to secondary replicas so that RU goes largely unused.

                                  2. In some use cases it can be better for performance to only use 1 or 2 partitions at a time for read/writes but over time data is spread across all partitions. In this case the RU for all partitions not being actively used at the time are largely unused.

                                  Ian Bennett commented  · 

                                  My suggestions are, in order of preference:

                                  1. Allow setting of a max RU/s limit and auto scale between lowest possible and up to that limit
                                  2. Bring back RU/m.
                                  3. Allow scheduling of RU/s settings from the Portal (I know this can already be done in a convoluted fashion with command line).

                                        We’ve made progress on this scenario/pattern implementing message routing in the IoT Hub service.
                                        You can today set rules (called routes) based on messages content or headers and have them sent directly to “custom endpoints” (today we support Event Hub, Service Bus Queues and Topics, Blob Storage). Learn more here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-hub/iot-hub-devguide-endpoints#custom-endpoints

                                        We are considering other custom endpoint types. Your feedback is welcome here.

                                          This is a great idea. Please include a list of the top most generic tasks you would like to see.

                                            Further to this, the UTC settings should apply to Advanced Schedule as well. Regardless, it would be good if the timezone was shown in Advanced Schedule to avoid confusion.
