I can't find the logging agents for my Ubuntu VM. When I look in Extensions+Applications, I don't see any.

i've tried searching for: azure analytics agent, logs, agent, i only have some third party results, like from Datadog, symantec, 24x7 . My goal is to set up some basic health monitoring on my VM.

Azure Monitor
