The current .NET Autonaming functionality is nice however we currently use a standardization on Application Pool names that does not allow for autonaming to be completely useful, meaning that application pools do not disambiguate region they are associated, with this every region of an application will report in the same if we use autonaming. Currently the solution is to manually name each application in newrelic.config/web.config, this isn’t terrible, but there could be other ways that would make autonaming useful
I was thinking a quick fix for other people with this might be to add the ability to perform a prefix/suffix to naming, configuring this at the global level would allow for very quick deployments.
