    @Mihir Raj Singh You can use Azure Firewall logs and metrics to monitor your traffic and operations within the firewall. These logs and metrics serve several essential purposes, including:

    Traffic Analysis: Use logs to examine and analyze the traffic passing through the firewall. This includes examining permitted and denied traffic, inspecting source and destination IP addresses, URLs, port numbers, protocols, and more. These insights are essential for understanding traffic patterns, identifying potential security threats, and troubleshooting connectivity issues.

    Performance and Health Metrics: Azure Firewall metrics provide performance and health metrics, such as data processed, throughput, rule hit count, and latency. Monitor these metrics to assess the overall health of your firewall, identify performance bottlenecks, and detect any anomalies.

    Audit Trail: Activity logs enable auditing of operations related to firewall resources, capturing actions like creating, updating, or deleting firewall rules and policies. Reviewing activity logs helps maintain a historical record of configuration changes and ensures compliance with security and auditing requirements.

    The action to be taken depends on the metric or logs you are monitoring. Is there specific metric you are looking for?
