Azure Monitor Room for Improvement

I'm quite involved in the automation of dynamic alerts so I really can provide some insight into how that can be improved. They did have an alerts feature before and it was quite well automated, but since they've gone to a dynamic model and did a few updates, it broke a few things. Some commands that were used before no longer work. But some things that could be improved are: * Feedback should really be feeding back to MSFC (Windows Server Failover Cluster). * Make it so you can actually create more dynamic alerts on the fly. * Add capabilities to export templates dynamically. * Integrate better with Terraform — which everybody seems to be using these days. The integration with Terraform is broken on the Terraform side as well so it's not working as well as it should be from either point. View full review »

Overall, we're not too enthusiastic about the solution. The solution is administration heavy, and very cumbersome. Using it is a lot of work on the admin side. It doesn't do things out of the box the way other products do. The new data ingest pricing model is wrong. They should scrap that all together. It should be a flat rate per year. As of right now, it fluctuates month to month, so it's hard to really know how much you will be charged. The solution needs a lot of work. It needs out of the box monitoring, real-time monitoring, and better network mapping. There are many features that are lacking. The process of implementation needs to be easier. The problem is the solution only does Azure. It can't monitor any other SAAS products. That's a very limiting design flaw. View full review »

I think the product could be improved if they were to work on automation related to gathering metrics from more applications without the need for instrumentation and things like that. I'd like them to work more on that. Additional features they could include would be more automations related to applications and monitoring, user experience monitoring on the application level. Improvement on technical support would also be helpful. View full review »

They need to work on a more hybrid deployment that will allow us to monitor local on-premise deployments and connect to different systems. I would like to see more integration. In the next version, I would like to see more mobile applications. The current support is based on email so customers don't have full support. I think the developers need to put some effort into the support team to put skilled people in place and provide phone access. View full review »

In comparison to New Relic, which I've used before, it's a bit more complicated. It's not as easy to use. It also took some time to get it working. The implementation needs to be simpler. View full review »

When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible. It is not very user-friendly so the GUI can be improved. View full review »

I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now. View full review »

They can simplify the overall complexity since you have multiple data sources in the cloud for monitoring. It's quite simple, but there are so many portals. It takes time to work with it. If they could simplify the user configuration, that would be good. The integration capabilities could use some improvements. View full review »

The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring. They should simplify the logs. View full review »
