You should use Cloudyn reports. Cloudyn is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product integrated into Azure that enables you to track resource expenditures. Cloudyn also offers in-depth guidance to help you reduce your monthly spend. Cloudyn is an extension of Azure Cost Management, Microsoft's native cost management solution in Azure.

You should not run interactive queries in Azure Log Analytics because the scenario does not state that Azure resources are configured to write their diagnostics data to an Azure Log Analytics workspace. If this were so, then you could indeed use KQL to generate resource cost data. However, Azure Log Analytics does not offer optimization suggestions.

You should not design metrics charts in Azure Monitor because the metrics charting capability does not support ad-hoc queries. Furthermore, you would use not Azure Monitor but Azure Cost Management or Azure Advisor to retrieve cost optimization advice from the Azure platform directly.

You should not create a Stream Analytics job in the Azure portal. Azure Stream Analytics is an event-processing engine that uses a Structured Query Language (SQL)-like syntax to filter and process data extracted from Azure Event Hubs or IoT Hubs.
