We are soon going to be migrating to Office 365 from Exchange 2013 on premise.
I want to know how to get the following information in the cloud:

 - Exchange mail Queue data (like I can get from the Exchange Toolbox in my on-Premise servers)
- Log information (transaction logs, and other logs from Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Logging folder)
- server event logs

Thank you,

It's a shared service, you do not have access to anything like this. You will have to make due with Audit logs, Message tracking and such.

Thank you for your response. I understand on how to find and use Message tracking in O365, but could you give me more information on the where I would find the Audit logs and any other areas you use to confirm functionality  and/or troubleshoot Exchange system in the cloud?

thank you,

What I meant is that you cannot access any of the logs like you are used to with on-prem Exchange install, and instead you will have to use the tools that are available via EAC or PowerShell.  For example, here's how you can access the auditing logs: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150497(v=exchg.150).aspx

Other useful tools will be the Remote connectivity analyzer (http://aka.ms/rca), the service health dashboard, different walkthroughs, etc. Here's a more detailed list: http://community.office365.com/en-us/w/diagnostic_tools/default.aspx
