Using Azure Log Analytics with Cloudera Data Warehouse in Azure environments

Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) provides an option to enable and leverage Azure Log Analytics in Azure environments. When you enable Azure Log Analytics from the CDW UI and select a Log Analytics workspace, CDW sends the log data to Azure Monitor Logs.

You can use the Log Analytics tool to edit and run log queries, and create dashboards and alerts from the log queries.
