Writing Extended Events To Blob Storage

Arun Sirpal shows how to write an Azure SQL Database extended events session to blob storage:

Last year I wrote about Azure SQL Database extended events (https://blobeater.blog/2017/02/06/using-extended-events-in-azure/)  and gave an example where I was capturing deadlocks via the ring buffer. Ever since then I wanted to do a follow-up post but using Azure storage as the target for my XEL files.

This is more complicated than using the ring buffer as the target and requires a couple of things:

  • Azure storage account where you create a dedicated container for the files.

  • SAS key.

  • Database master key.

  • Database scoped credential.

Also, fantastic obfuscation in the post.  Hello, Shane!
