Add support for calculated metrics to App Insights

I would like the ability to combine two metrics in a third, calculated metric. For example, I might want to create a "Custom Error Percentage" metric that divides custom errors per second by requests per second. I could then alert off an error metric that has been normalized for scale instead of one that's specifically tied to RPS.

        We are working on enhanced version of the metric explorer, as part of our next major update. In the first rev, we have a number of new capabilities like filtering and segmentation. Calculated Metrics or formulas are on our roadmap, but I don't have exact timelines as to when. I expect us to be able to define the formulas and calculate dynamically at query time, that gives you more accurate representation of the formula / calculated metric over the time period.

        Besides alerts based on the calculate metric, this feature would be extremely relevant to get to a single dashboard (like the OI dashboard) through which we can drive service reviews etc.
        Service availability is typically a combination of GSM availability numbers and some of the performance counters.
