Log Analytics is an Azure service that collects and stores information/data from a set of different sources and we can use Log Analytics queries to retrieve records that match particular criteria, identify trends, analyze patterns, and provide a variety of insights into our data.  

Collect windows performance counters from Log Analytics agents at custom intervals to gain insight into the performance of hardware components, operating systems, and applications.
