Hey everyone 👋 Just joined. We’re using Uptycs/osquery for asset mgmt and IDS, looking to learn all I can about osquery in the process 🙂

As general info, this is a broader osquery slack. I believe Uptycs distributes a fork, so anything uptycs specific we won’t know much about #uptycs exists.

But folks here are always pretty happy to talk, and we try to be friendly.

Roger that! I joined #uptycs indeed, but more than eager to learn about osquery in general, so I’ll lurk around 🙂

it’s a big topic. You can ask pretty much anything on general, though you might get pointed to another channel

I tend to think about osquery as an API translation layer. If you want to know something, there’s a good chance there’s a table to translate that api to osquery, and then I can construct my questions in sql.

That is a nice way of looking at it indeed 🙂
