  1. Logs with many lines should not jump to the next log until all the current log has been scrolled past

    When there is a log (specifically in Trace Logs) with many lines - think 20-30+ lines, it screws with the scrolling.

    If you're scrolling past a few one-line logs and hit a large log, it will jump past the entire log instead of smoothly scrolling down all the lines.

    • Ability to Configure Diagnostic Log

      Would like the ability to configure diagnostic logs within Azure Management studio. Specifically the storage account, trace logging level, and other items as well.

      This functionality exists within Visual Studio 2013 under "Server Explorer" by right clicking on a Cloud Service role, and selecting "Update Diagnostics".

      It would be niice to be able to do this within Azure Management Studio, as I find VS 2013 azure management features slow & buggy.

      • Event Log Viewer, add right click Copy to Friendly View

        The xml view of an event log entry has a right click context menu as it's a web format. But the friendly view does not.
        I really want to be able to just copy and paste a message into an email or IM to communicate to a developer, but the only current way is taking pieces from the xml view which can be tedious.

        • Include Precise Tracelog Timestamp in Download Data

          The Tracelog output in the software has the ability to show the precise tracelog date/time (the PresiceTimestamp column of the WADLogsTable) which corresponds to the time the message was generated. This is very useful information when troubleshooting issues.

          When you "download data" to export the log data into an excel file, you lose this value. It only shows the less accurate Timestamp field.

          It would be very helpful to include the PreciseTimestamp field in the export as well

          • Add section to Diagnostics like Trace Logs that will operate on custom ETW tables

            Add section to Diagnostics like Trace Logs that will operate on custom ETW tables, they added support for ETW in Azure 2.5 sdk, Diagnostics 1.3, We can now have certain events go to custom tables, combining that with the existing Trace Log filtering would be very powerful

              • Enhance Log Filtering

                It would be nice to have the ability to use Wildcard or Regex in the Text to Search field.

                It would also be nice apply multiple layers of filters.

                • Get email as alert when using Live Data Feed withTrace Logs

                  It would be nice to be able to get email as alert e.g. of all ERROR level trace when using Live Data Feed from Trace Logs. Email server for sending, alert receivers and trace level of which to alert should be configurable.

                      • Query WADLogs table is very slow when you add a filter.

                        I'm sure it's an issue with the logs more than your tool, but it would be good if the query returned more quickly. i.e. Timestamp gt Datetime'2014-05-13T14:30:00Z' and Level lt 5 and Role eq 'Worker.Role.Name'

                        • Have a Dashboard app that works with Studio data, that displays dashboard(s)

                          The goal is to have a lighter app or Studio app 'mode' that gui wise displays the 'default' dashboard graphic (hide details and supportive panels). Options maybe: to select multiple dashboards that the app would cycle every 15(?) seconds, multiple dashboards on the same view.

                          • Add trend lines to Dashboard graphics.

                            Add a dotted or dashed trend line option for each data series. A simple checkbox would work for the gui, use the same color. The line would responded to the scope of the timeline view sliders.

                              • When displaying aggregated performance counter graphs for multiple instances add possibility to specify aggregation function (e.g. sum, avg)

                                Currently only average of values is displayed. However it would be beneficial if I could sum counter values from instances and displays aggregated data graph.
