I’ve stumbled on a great article by Brandon Wilson named Demystifying Schannel on which he explains how we can enable verbose logging for Schannel to found out what protocols our machines are using. As I leave and breathe Log Analytics and love to crunch data I thought would be cool example if we can ingest that data into it and show you some cool example with the new query language on transforming data.
As you are familiar currently OMS has two search portals – the legacy one located in OMS classic Portal and the Analytics one. The Analytics Portal is slowly getting some of the cool features from the legacy Search Portal. One feature that was very handy in it was that TimeGenerated was displayed in the time zone you are accessing it. This is very handy when you have to investigate as it helps you track the events, logs and metrics at your local time. This was missing in the Analytics portal but now it is there and even enhanced.
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.

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

I saw that a few folks were struggling of expressing less than thresholds in Operations Management Suite View Designer. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. This is just idiom and I do not have anything against cats.
