Working With Azure Log Analytics Service

Log Analytics is a service in Operations Management Suite (OMS), that helps you to collect and analyze the data created by the resources in your cloud and on-premises environments. It gives you real-time understanding, using an integrated search and custom dashboards to readily analyze millions of records across all your workloads and the servers, regardless of their physical location.
