What is the issue or story related to the change?

This change is an effort to reduce info logs for core services. Combining all the AKS services we deploy in our prod, customer environments, we regularly see ContainerLog usage crossing 200 or 300gb daily. Since ApplicationInsight logging is not cheap, this is incurring huge costs.

With this change, we are reducing the number of trace logs that are otherwise not required for 'happy path' for a service request. Please see attached an example of Storage's POST /query/records api request log details from our dev env.


The highlighted entries seem unnecessary and given the volume of requests, add up to quite a lot of size. This change aims to remove these entries to cost-optimize logging.

Test coverage:

No change

Does this introduce a breaking change?
