Log processing rate in vRealize Log Insight

Hi to all members.
Could anyone help if we can capture the log processing rate and the log arrival rate by vRealize Insight ?
I am particularly interested in

1. Capturing the arrival rate of the logs to the Log Insight in events/sec or bytes/sec
2. The processing rate of the logs by Log Insight in events/sec or bytes/sec.
3. Ensure my Log Insight processing rate is higher than the arrival rate.

There are statistics... more »

Dashboard sharing or cloning for Log Readers


Some of our log readers want some way of sharing dashboards between each other. They are not admins so can't write to shared dashboards.

We'd like a way of either :

granting certain users write/move to rights for *some* shared dashboards.

Ideally some sort of rights management features to accompany this.


as an admin, the ability to clone or mutate another users (not my) dashboard to a shared dashboard.

Force new config file

I would like to see the ability to force agents in a Group to copy the config from the agent Group into their liagent.ini file as startup config.

After doing a mass deploy of agents i found that all agents come With auto_update=yes commented out, and if I use the option to change it in the agent Groups, it will not work as the agent obviously reads the local file at the time where the auto update is triggered. For me... more »

Better SSL certificate workflow/UI/UX

The current SSL certificate installation procedure is (IMHO) unnecessarily complex, since 90 % of the work needs to be done manually outside vRLI using weird command line instructions.

It's like if the first instruction after buying an IKEA shelf would be "hey, go out and buy some screws and make your own wooden plugs".

I think the procedure should be more like in NSX, where the product web UI can be used to create... more »

Role to manage Agent configuration

As of today, in order to manage Agent configuration the user needs to have "Super Admin" role which has very wide scope including the ability to manage access control.


We should be able to delegate Agent Configuration to some "power users" without giving them the ability to alter Access Control.


An "Agent Admin" role would great in that objective.

enhance filtering options for data sets

would be great if we could use the same filters as in "interactive analytics" for "new data set".
At the moment there are just a few fields available.
For example we would like to create a data set for some users so that they can only see events where "text"-field matches a regex query or certain words or e.g. the "event_type" field is a certain type.
Custom extracted fields are also not available for data set filters.... more »

Custom fields in Data Sets

I would like to have custom fields within Data Sets. The static pre-defined fields do not grant enough flexibility in controlling access to the data.

It would require the following to achieve this:
* Datasets to include custom searches
* Datasets to include per VIP Static tags
* Datasets to include Content Pack regex

This would allow users to control access based on the source / tenant / business unit / environment... more »

Enrich log records

We would like to be able to enrich log records with info from an external sources (add custom tags for incoming/existing logs based on a query to an external service) like vROPS does.


Use cases:

a. Query GeoIP Web Service for IP’s location

b. Query CMDB via HTTP/LDAP for additional information (e.g. customer name, related services, server role, environment ….)
