Log Analytics: Usage and Estimated Costs – update

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!
