Azure Log Analytics plays a central role in monitoring and management of your Azure environment. It enables collecting telemetry and other data from a variety of sources across Azure, and provides a query language and analytics engine for deep analysis and insights on the operation of applications and resources. For more information on the Log Analytics platform, see What is Azure Log Analytics.
With native support for saving SQL audit logs directly to Log Analytics, log data from all of your database resources can be gathered and stored in a single central location. The logs can now be analyzed using the rich analysis tools provided by the platform, which can provide deeper visibility and advanced cross-resource analytics.
In addition, SQL Server audit logs (from on-premises SQL Servers or SQL Servers on a VM) can also be collected in Log Analytics via OMS agent integration, as described in this article. Thus, you can manage and analyze all of your database audit logs, whether from the cloud or on-premises, in a single central location using the power of Azure Log Analytics.
