Programmatically Change Azure Log Analytics Pricing Model

Microsoft recently introduced a new model for purchasing Azure Log Analytics. To use this new model you will basically have to enable it on per subscription bases. In short you can either continue to use the old models or flip a switch on your subscription to use the new model.

Free E-book: Inside #MSOMS v2 now available

It took us some time but we’ve managed to update the one and only free OMS book. We had plans to release it earlier but unforeseen things has happened which prevented us to do it earlier. I hope you will understand but you will still enjoy it. The other authors and me put a lot of effort to get it out along with the reviewers.

The new query language of Log Analytics is not included in the book but that should not discourage you as the content is still relevant.

Go grab Inside the Microsoft Operations Management Suite for free. Let us know if you have any feedback.

I mostly would like to thank my fiancée for being patient with me and supporting me while I was writing my chapters.
