    Azure Monitor Application Insights can be used to

    • Automatically detect performance anomalies.
    • Help diagnose issues by using powerful analytics tools.
    • See what users actually do with apps.
    • Help continuously improve app performance and usability.

    This would most likely be the best option for your issue, as you can view all the requests that users make to your Application. This won't however show you telemetry from outside you Web application (i.e. if someone RDP's in and downloads the files). For this you would want to use Virtual Machine Insights for performance data and Defender for Endpoint (via Defender for Servers) to get the deep dive into all the processes and events occurring on your device.
