Ensure Azure Monitoring Enabled For Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster

As part of Azure Monitoring, valuable telemetry reported by AKS is collected and stored. In addition to memory and processor metrics for controllers, nodes, and container logs, individual container logs are also included. Azure Log Analytics provides access to this data for AKS clusters and Azure Monitor instances. Memory and processor metrics from containers, nodes, and controllers should be stored. As a result, AKS clusters can be analyzed in real-time and post-mortem to identify unknown behaviors.
