I am coding in Nodejs, in Visual Studio Code, using Azure functions.
I am able to stream logs in local, but i am only able to view logs to console(console.log) and context.log.
Not able to view custom logs using application insights in local.
I am able to view the trace logs in Azure portal. But I want to know how to view it in local, in VS Code.

My code
let appInsights = require('applicationinsights');
appInsights.setup(<instrumentationKey>).start();
let client = appInsights.defaultClient;

client.trackTrace({
message: "message",
severity: appInsights.Contracts.SeverityLevel.Information
});
