Monthly updates for Azure Monitor: August 2019
It’s now possible to configure the data retention on your Azure Monitor Application Insights resources from 30 days up to 730 days.
Two new scripts are available now in PowerShell Gallery to streamline the query and collection of logs into Azure Monitor Logs.
Announcing Application Insights Status Monitor v2 is now generally available.
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 containerized 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.
