    Azure Monitor for Containers with Prometheus support for AKS engines is now in preview

    Prometheus integration with Azure Monitor for containers is now in preview and brings together the best of two worlds. Typically, to use Prometheus, you need to set up and manage a Prometheus server with a database. With the Azure Monitor integration, no Prometheus server is needed – simply expose the Prometheus endpoint through your exporters or pods (application), and the containerised agent for Azure Monitor for containers can scrape the metrics for you. A seamless onboarding experience to collect Prometheus metrics with Azure Monitor is provided.

    In development: query interleaving for Azure Analysis Services

    Target availability: Q4 2019

    Enterprise BI systems need to support high user concurrency, which means there can be lots of queries submitted close to each other. We are pleased to announce that we are working on the query interleaving feature, which allows system configuration to improve the user experience in high-concurrency scenarios. Query interleaving allows configuration to improve the user experience in high-concurrency scenarios. Multiple queries can run concurrently so fast that queries are not blocked behind slow ones. Query interleaving can be set up with short query bias so if the system is under CPU pressure, short queries are allocated a higher proportion of CPU resources than long-running queries, allowing them to complete faster.
