Hi @Herald Roeleveld , Thanks for the post. I suggest going with option 2 so you can benefit from the latest and greatest improvements in Azure Monitor. IMO, there's no need to be concerned especially with this in Public (not Private) preview status but happy to hear why you think this is a concern. Also please share the link to the documenation that calls out the Preview mode and I will be happy to followup internally to see when this feature will be moved from Preview to Generally Availablility (GA) mode.
Hope this helps.
