What is Log Analytics?

Azure Log Analytics is a service in Operations Management Suite that helps you collect and analyse data generated by resources in your cloud and on-premises environments. Get real-time insights by using integrated search and custom dashboards to analyse millions of records across all of your workloads and servers regardless of their physical location.

Collect, combine, correlate and visualise all of your data

Separate the signal from the noise with simple, powerful log-management tools. Collect and search across data sources from multiple systems, centralised in a single data store, so that you can quickly identify the root cause of operational issues. Search powered dashboards using drag-and-drop search queries to build custom visualisations. Create your own personal lens to focus on what matters most.

Manage your Azure resources at an enterprise level

Get deep visibility into your Azure resources across multiple subscriptions your enterprise might use. Transform your Azure activity data and managed resource data into an insight with flexible search queries.

Ensure that your servers are up to date

Identify missing system updates and see malware status across all of your Windows Server instances running in your datacenter or the public cloud. Know which of your servers have the latest updates and which ones need updating.

Track server configuration changes

When you troubleshoot an operational incident, the first thing you want to know is what has changed on your servers. Quickly identify operational issues caused by Windows services changes and software changes in your environment.

Review configurations for your workloads

Detect potential configuration issues or deviations from best practices for workloads such as Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint, Exchange and Hyper-V. Proactively avoid problems with an ongoing assessment of your configuration.
