OMS – Longer retention of up to 2years


As a team a lot of our days are now spent talking about OMS, one key OMS change recently was to enable the retention of data for more than the typical 7 , 30 or 365 days.  You can now go to 2 years if required.  See the blog from Richard Rundle that tells you how: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msoms/2016/11/15/search-for-up-to-two-years-of-data-with-oms-log-analytics/

The GUI will be updated later to do this in a less manual way.

UPDATE: the GUI has now been changed

To change the length of data retention:

  1. Sign into the Azure portal.
  2. Browse for Log Analytics and then select it.
  3. You see your list of existing workspaces. Select a workspace.
  4. In the workspace blade under General, click Retention.

Use the slider to increase or decrease the number of days of retention and then click Save

 

Thanks

Clive
