After digging around the portal a bit today and testing a few things, I came across a few new solutions in the gallery 🙂

Let’s take a look!


Key Vault

The Key Vault Solution allows you to understand the usage of your Key Vault’s. Available features include:

  • Summary of Operations by Operation Name
  • Failed Operations
  • Operation Latency

Recommended Searches to explore data further and be added to your own Custom Dashboards, or used to generate Alerts, for example

  • Events by Caller IP Address
  • Vault properties updated
  • Graph of Avg DurationMs for each Operation
  • Min, Max, Avg DurationMs for all Operations


Network Performance Monitor

Modern applications, especially those that are distributed, require insights to performance of the network, as they can adversely impact the response time of the applications. Network Performance Monitor offers near real time monitoring of network performance parameters like loss and latency, fault localization and diagnostics/troubleshooting of the network problems. It not only helps you with timely detection of network problems but also localizes the source of the problem to a particular network segment or device. Network performance monitor generates alerts as and when a threshold has breached for a network link. These thresholds can be learnt automatically by the system (ideal-state) or can be configured by the administrator using custom alert rules.

Dashboard of the solution displays summary of your network including recent alerts and network links that are facing high packet loss and latency. You can drill down into a network link to get the health status of subnetwork links as well as node to node links. You can also visualize historical trend charts of the loss and latency at the network, subnetwork as well as node to node level. A topology map enables you to pin point the location of a fault within your network.

The solution uses synthetic transactions as a primary mechanism to detect network faults and hence it is agnostic to network devices vendors or models. It works across on-premise, cloud (IaaS) and hybrid environments. The solution automatically discovers the topology and various routes in your network and requires very little manual configuration. Like other OMS solutions all the data collected by Network Performance Monitor is searchable through Log search and you can directly query this data to create custom reports.

Data collected: Prefix and prefix length of your subnets. Loss and Latency metrics as measured across network.

Office 365 (I’m super excited about this one and predicted it a while back! Although I wish it did synthetic transactions and further testing :))

Provides full visibility into your Office 365 account, allowing you to track user activities, perform forensics as well as audit and compliance


Service Fabric

The Service Fabric Solution helps identify and troubleshoot issues across your Service Fabric cluster, by providing visibility into how your Service Fabric virtual machines are performing and how your applications and micro-services are running.

Available features include

  • Get insight into your Service Fabric framework
  • Get insight into the performance of your Service Fabric applications and micro-services
  • View events from your applications and micro-services

Data collected: Service Fabric Reliable Service Events, Service Fabric Actor Events, Service Fabric Operational Events, Event tracing for Windows event and Windows event logs

Requirements: This solution will only work if you have set up Azure Diagnostics on your Service Fabric VMs, and have configured OMS to collect data for your WAD tables


  1. hello,
    looks cool, I’m currently using OMS for looking at error events and have also been testing out the performance monitoring.

    the only thing I would like to see improved on these two things would be if they auto refreshed instead of me having to do a manual refresh, this functionality would allow me to setup VDU’s on the wall for the helpdesk to see if they had trouble brewing
