+1 for this, quite frustrating jumping between the different blades within the AI experience and constantly having to change the time range when diagnosing problems. Drop a cookie please!
I've achieved what I needed by using a custom metric and the monitoring API - details at https://medium.com/@dylanm_asos/using-the-azure-monitor-metrics-api-to-create-custom-metrics-933be1795629.
Adding to this, it would be useful to be able to set up an alert at the namespace level that could be triggered whenever any of the entities reach x% capacity. For example, I have a namespace that is made up of 50+ queues and topics - I want to be alerted when any of them are reaching capacity. To do this now, I need to set up individual alerts at the entity level, that alert when size > x bytes. A single alert - 'when any entity is x% of max size' would be easier to manage.

Yep - similar to this one as well https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/34419790-automatic-refresh-and-configurable-refresh-interva

Sergey might be able to help you find ways to do this on your own. But we don’t have any plans to do this automatically in the App Insights SDK, given the breadth and telemetry size consequences of that kind of change.
- David from the App Insights team
@Sergey - we're just going to build this in to our app configuration, so we can enrich telemetry with the setting.
Hey @Sergey, a couple of use cases as follows. In both cases, consider the process to be deployed to EUW and EUN, both sending to a single instrumentation key.
1) A web api processing client requests. We would like to enrich the request telemetry to include the region of the web API that received and processed the request
2) A Daemon app of some variety, generating customEvents / metrics / exceptions etc. We would also like to enrich this telemetry with the geo-region that generated the telemetry
With the cross-instrumentation key enhancements that have been introduced recently, we're moving more towards a 1-2-1 relationship between an application deployed to a region and an instrumentation key for the application in that region, which then gives us this capability.
However, we have a number of apps not in this state at the moment and it would be useful to know if we can easily enrich the telemetry with this information, allowing us to easily split and graph data accordingly.

The ability to view a number built from an analytics query would be a really useful feature, something like https://s33.postimg.cc/ms8qut0nj/number-stats.png
