Local configuration for osquery on Windows

I pretty commonly get asked by folks for a generic Windows configuration for osquery, as the example configuration pack in the osquery repository favors posix systems a bit (Something we're hoping to make better).

While the configuration is a core component to what queries one is interested in for their enterprise, we typically perform most of the daemon configuration through the --flagsfile. Below is the flags file I typically use with the following config.

--config_plugin=filesystem
--config_path=C:\ProgramData\osquery\osquery.conf
--enable_monitor
--events_expiry=300
--logger_plugin=filesystem
--logger_path=C:\ProgramData\osquery\log
--database_path=C:\ProgramData\osquery\osquery.db
--pidfile=C:\ProgramData\osquery\osquery.pid
--disable_watchdog=false
--disable_events=false
--windows_event_channels=System,Application,Setup,Security
--verbose

And here's the corresponding osquery.conf
