Feel free to download and use my Log Analytics view for Azure Automation DSC. To get started with DSC please use the right menu on my blog and look through the examples. Also, before using this view the logs from Azure Automation DSC need to exist in Log Analytics. Please see my earlier post to push the logs into Log Analytics Link.

Recently it became possible to monitor Azure DSC in Azure Automation with Log Analytics. Here is how to do this setup in the Azure Portal.
First go to the Log Analytics workspace and click on Azure Resources. Select the Automation Account where DSC exists.
Select DscNodeStatus and click Save. In my example, I also want information about jobs in Azure Automation.
Verify that you have nodes added for Azure DSC and then go to Search in Log Analytics.
Do a search for Category=DscNodeStatus and you will see information from Azure DSC.
For more information and to do this in PowerShell, see the following documentation page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/automation-dsc-diagnostics
This is a great resource to get nice OMS Views and templates for free. Look and search throw this resource on GitHub to see if you find anything that you like!
Off course this nice resource is not just for OMS but for many other services and solutions in Azure too ?
To do this go to your Log Analytics Workspace and click Overview and then right click the solution you want to pin on the Azure Dashboard.
