Viewing an Azure WebSite IIS Logs

On Azure created websites, the main Azure UI provides some interesting stats:

And if we enable Web Server Logging:
We can access the IIS logs via FTP:

We can also access a Kudu page on the Git repository location (I found this by accident, since I don't think the link is on the Azure UI)

Which allows us to download all the logs (via the Dump link)

And get a live stream of the lastest logs (which looks pretty powerful and should allow for realtime application monitoring)
