Can I use Splunk Enterprise Add on as log management tool for Azure Websites (AppService)?

New Member


I am hosting a website in Azure Platform as a Service(PaaS).

I am using Azure AppService to host my website and a Linux VM hosting MySQL database and connected both.

What I am planning to do is integrate logs (Application, web server, Azure Activity logs, MySQL logs) and monitor them.

Is it possible to achieve this using Splunk enterprise?

For this scenario, you can use the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services (a.k.a. MSCS) to pull in the data from the various components listed. Azure Websites expose data via an Azure Blob, and the MSCS add-on can pull in the data written there. For the Linux VMs, you can install a Universal Forwarder, or you can enable diagnostics within Azure and have Splunk pick up the diagnostic data. The MSCS add-on can also pick up the Azure Activity logs (a.k.a. Azure Audit logs).
