OMS: Querying OMS the Message Analyzer way

22 Sep

 

Hi,

Short post to give you something cool I tried out today. I think about 1 year ago Microsoft dropped the Network Analyzer tool and replaced it with the Microsoft Message Analyzer tool.

With this tool you can now trace not only network traffic, like you only could do with the network analyzer tool, but also many other trace datasources. One of them is also OMS. Yes you hear it right. You can now analyse your OMS query’s using the Message Analyzer tool !

Here’s a short howto:

Download the Message Analyzer tool from:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44226

 

Install and start it.

 

Now press the “New Session” button.

Now select the OMS datasource

Logon into you AZURE account.

 

YOU will need to have an active AZURE subscription !!!

Select the correct Azure subscription and Workspace.

 

Now in de query box you can specify the search query like you would do in the OMS Log search.

 

For this demo I use “*” to get all records.

 

Press Apply

After a couple of seconds the OMS records will be displayed. Now you can select 1 record and see all the properties filed and values.

 

At this time the results are limited by 10. Maybe later on it will be changed.

 

Happy OMS’ing!
