Cons
"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.""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.""n 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.""As a younger product it still has room for feature improvement and enhancement.""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.""When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible.""I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now.""Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."

More Azure Monitor Cons »

"One area to improve is the user interface, of course. The second one is their R&D has virtually stopped building a product roadmap.""We would like to see support for non-Windows environments.""When we want to monitor our encrypted traffic, this product doesn't work because our cipher is not supported."
