Back at the start of April Clive posted about an update around usage and estimated costs for Log Analytics. This is now live(in our workspace) and allows the setting of a daily ingestion cap. The ingestion by solution is interesting -
But also now you can set a daily cap as well as the data retention -
This allows you to build in some certainty around data volumes and ultimately protect against cost overruns if a team member accidently left debug on as an example………
The doc link has been updated with this info https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-manage-cost-storage
As an added bonus you can also alert on “OverQuota” within Azure Monitor!
