Alerting On Azure Data Lake Store Data Usage

Jose Lara shows off an interesting feature in Azure Data Lake Store:

The massive scale and capabilities of Azure Data Lake Store are regularly used by companies for big data storage. As the number of files, file types, and folders grow, things get harder to manage and staying compliant becomes a greater challenge for companies.

We will create a log analytics query and an alert that monitors a specific path and file type and sends a notification whenever the path or file is created, accessed, modified, or deleted.

Auditing access has historically been tricky, so it’s nice that they were able to get that in.
