A module for exploring real-time streams of events

pip install realtimekql==2.2.4


Real-Time KQL

To process data with Kusto Query Language (KQL) queries today, users generally have to upload their data to storage first and then query it. The Kql Tools eliminate this need by processing event streams with KQL queries as events arrive, in real-time.
