Sharepoint Monitoring( Database) from Central admin
I would like MSFT give us the ability to see the following things/ reports either from Central Admin or Powershell.
Content Database Size( free space, data space etc)
Site collections in the Database
Site collections Size per database / per web app.
Disk space on the SQL Server
Manage the Permission on DB from SharePoint.
This will help administrators to managed the Content DB and plan the storage space effciently. in the orgnization where SP admin dont have access to SQL server, these reports really help.

It seems like Trending of this data would be a positive addition, if this were to go forward.
3rd party tools are great, but that pushes the product set closer and closer to being cost prohibitive for smaller organizations.
Traditionally this type of reporting has been the stomping ground for our partner/ISV teams or custom built by customers.
We are working on a range of new telemetry ideas and I will feed this back to the team responsible.
