This document describes the Microsoft Azure Log Analytics Nozzle for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF).
## <a id='overview'></a>Overview
Microsoft [Operations Management Suite](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/operations-management-suite/) (OMS) is Microsoft's cloud-based IT management solution that helps you manage and protect your on-premises and cloud infrastructure.
Azure [Log Analytics](https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/log-analytics/) is a service in OMS that helps you collect and analyze data generated by resources in your cloud and on-premises environments. This document refers to the Azure Log Analytics service in OMS as _OMS Log Analytics_.
The Microsoft Azure Log Analytics Nozzle for PCF receives logs and metrics from the Loggregator [Firehose](https://docs.pivotal.io/pivotalcf/loggregator/architecture.html#firehose), filters and resolves the events, and then pushes the events to OMS Log Analytics via the HTTPS Data Collector API.
PCF developers and operators can then view and analyze their application logs and health metrics through the OMS portal or the Azure portal.
## <a id='features'></a>Key Features
Microsoft Azure Log Analytics Nozzle for PCF includes the following key features:
* Consumes all data from Loggregator [Firehose](https://docs.pivotal.io/pivotalcf/loggregator/architecture.html#firehose), including logs from apps hosted on PCF and metrics data from Cloud Foundry (CF) components
* Organizes, filters, and transfers data to OMS Log Analytics for deep analysis
* Integrates with OMS Log Analytics, including default view dashboards and alert rules, to monitor the health and workload of your PCF deployment
* Adds logging to track the status of the nozzle itself, for example [slow consumer alerts](https://docs.cloudfoundry.org/loggregator/log-ops-guide.html#slow-noz), received, sent, and lost events
* Has automatic configuration defaults
PCF operators can install the [OMS agent for BOSH](https://github.com/Azure/oms-agent-for-linux-boshrelease) to supply additional system data to OMS Log Analytics, including Cloud Controller and User Account and Authentication (UAA) server security event logs, and VM-level syslogs and metrics from all components.
