Allow More Control Over AppInsight Templates

Allow More Control Over AppInsight Templates

Please allow for us to individually disable specific components in the AppInsight templates. The all or nothing approach with these is not very helpful. Our AppInsight IIS template has a number of components (worst offender is Worker Process Statistic Monitor) that just generate constant alerts that we do not need to receive. Currently, our only method of disabling this component is to remove the entire AppInsight template which is a really horrible design. These should be customizable to allow for more fine-tuned monitoring as needed in each environment.

What do you mean by 'Process Statistic Monitor'?

Level 8

It is the "Worker Process Statistic Monitor" in the "AppInsight for IIS" template. These seems to generate when an application pool recycles and possibly from a number of other events. Either way, there is no information on how to resolve the condition causing the alert, no way to adjust the threshold for the monitor, no way to disable the component without removing the entire template, hence I am stuck with an erroneous alert that I have no control over and is impacting our service delivery metrics.

How do you have your Worker Processes configured in IIS? Also, what is the alert you're receiving? The 'Worker Process Statistic Monitor' should go into a 'Not Running' state when the start mode is configured for 'On Demand'.

Why does this not have more votes???  BUMPPPP for the love of all that is good.  BUMP!

Yes please .  There are some things that just keep turning red/yellow and if it's not a data anyone cares about  it's very frustrating to not have a way to just disable it.  Its also annoying when you try to make "higher level dashboards/reports" and there's always something on the board that's red and having to say "this is normal for that system, and we can't turn it off or tune it".

RE: Removal of default website in appsight for IIS​, I would be really happy to see my tweaks persist after I have un-managed a component that is included in the AppInsight template.
