How to Keep Track of Your Higher Cost Azure Sentinel Tables Using KQL

Need a good way of tracking your Azure Sentinel table usage? Here’s a KQL query to help.

I can’t take full credit for it, other than sharing it. This query is an amalgam of different queries and the work of a multitude of individuals, but hugely useful.

union withsource=TableName1 *
| where TimeGenerated > ago(30d)
| summarize Entries = count(), Size = sum(_BilledSize), last_log = datetime_diff("second",now(), max(TimeGenerated)), estimate  = sumif(_BilledSize, _IsBillable==true)  by TableName1, _IsBillable
| project ['Table Name'] = TableName1, ['Table Entries'] = Entries, ['Table Size'] = Size,
          ['Size per Entry'] = 1.0 * Size / Entries, ['IsBillable'] = _IsBillable, ['Last Record Received'] =  last_log , ['Estimated Table Price'] =  (estimate/(1024*1024*1024)) * 0.0
 | order by ['Table Size']  desc

This is what the results look like:

Table size by cost

NOTE: For the 0.0 in the query (at the end of line 5), enter your price. You can use the Azure Pricing Calculator to obtain it.
