Spike In File Writes Help

In order to implement this search, you must populate the Endpoint file-system data model node. This is typically populated via endpoint detection and response products, such as Carbon Black or endpoint data sources such as Sysmon. The data used for this search is typically generated via logs that report reads and writes to the file system.
