Monitoring Azure SQL Transaction Log Usage with Powershell

Jose Manuel Jurado Diaz has a script for us:

Database administrators and IT professionals often need to be proactive in monitoring resources, especially when working in cloud environments like Azure SQL. One critical resource that requires monitoring is the transaction log of a SQL Server database. If it fills up, it can hinder database operations, leading to potential application downtime.

In this article, we’ll discuss a PowerShell script that monitors transaction log usage in Azure SQL databases and sends an email alert if a database exceeds a specific threshold.

There is a reference in the script to Check-LogUsage, which appears to be a different function, likely related to the linked T-SQL statement Jose posted.
