Example output:

 {'duration': '7.858810',
  'id.orig_h': '',
  'id.orig_p': '4444',
  'id.resp_h': '',
  'id.resp_p': '443',
  'ts': '2019-08-24T01:40:58'},
 {'duration': '9.201697',
  'id.orig_h': '',
  'id.orig_p': '4444',
  'id.resp_h': '',
  'id.resp_p': '80',
  'ts': '2019-08-23T23:26:48'},
 {'duration': '9.953056',
  'id.orig_h': '',
  'id.orig_p': '4444',
  'id.resp_h': '',
  'id.resp_p': '443',
  'ts': '2019-08-24T01:57:38'}]

This was based on a hunch because I saw port 4444 earlier in Sysmon.
Unfortunately this didn't help me find the solution, but was fun nonetheless.
