  • Hi,

    The diagnostics logs are saved in a blob container named $logs in your storage account. For information about accessing the $logs container, 

    The following types of authenticated requests are logged:

    • Successful requests
    • Failed requests, including timeout, throttling, network, authorization, and other errors
    • Requests using a Shared Access Signature (SAS), including failed and successful requests
    • Requests to analytics data
    • Requests made by Storage Analytics itself, such as log creation or deletion, are not logged. A full list of the logged data is documented in the Storage Analytics Logged Operations and Status Messages and Storage Analytics Log Format topics.

    NOTE : Requests made by Storage Analytics itself, such as log creation or deletion, are not logged. 

    The following types of anonymous requests are logged:

    • Successful requests
    • Server errors
    • Timeout errors for both client and server
    • Failed GET requests with error code 304 (Not Modified)

    NOTE : All other failed anonymous requests are not logged.

    All logs are stored in block blobs in a container named $logs, which is automatically created when Storage Analytics is enabled for a storage account. The $logs container is located in the blob namespace of the storage account, for example: http://<accountname>.blob.core.windows.net/$logs. This container cannot be deleted once Storage Analytics has been enabled, though its contents can be deleted.

    Hope this helps !
