Highlight/Colour dashboard based on widget states / highlights

When highlighting/colouring a widget is accepted as an enhancement, the next logical step would be to allow the same on dashbooard level. It would be brilliant if not only the fact that one widget changed state drives the dashboard state. You can define a logical rule how their state will be taken into account to drive the change. E.g. Dashboard changes state/colour when all 3 widgets change state (widget1 & widget2 & ...more »

Highlight/Colour widgets based on reaching certain limit/value shown

To notify someone visually when a certain/critical situation has been identified, it would be brilliant if you can highlight/colour a widget so you get the proper attention. E.g. host disconnections have been found the information mentions this is something you should investigate. How about defining there is a certain number of messages found and the widget switches it's colour to yellow/red?

Search through Dashboards (like iOS Mail search on top)

Tried to prepare my own dashboard by using widgets from existing ones and found it would brilliant if there is a search field on the top left corner above the widgets to enter a search string which reduces the number of widgets to the ones matching the search string. Would speed the creation and improve the usage.

Allow for a field to be compared to a field value modified by a mathematical operator.

Allow for a field to be compared to a field value modified by a mathematical operator.

Typing the name of a custom field does not allow LI to compare the 2 values, rather LI will compare the value to the string. See the attached screenshot for clarification. I would like to ...more »

Allow for valid field values to be compared using the mathematical operators

Currently, the math operators only allow you to compare a filed value to a integer\decimal that you input. Typing the name of a custom field does not allow LI to compare the 2 values, rather LI will compare the value to the string. See the attached screenshot for clarification. I would like to alert on if this log string ever returns a cap value (cap=174) that is > 90% of the threshold value (threshold=250). In this ...more »

Lightweight Forwarder for Edge Compute

For Edge Compute platforms for one example ROBO, something VMware is publicly discussing widely we need the ability to collect and send logs back to the datacentre.. Normally in these environments compute and storage space is a minimum, so we need a forwarder that is very lightweight in its install. Maybe even deployable as a container. The LI Forwarder would be good due to the compression it uses as we also need to consider ...more »

Need better auditing of user activities

I have a user that changed or deleted a user alert. Well, I now have another user asking "who" made the change. I would like to see better auditing capabilities in Log Insight. I am looking for an auditing of the following types of changes: 1) Login and logout * This appears to be in the ui_runtime.log, but the data isn't exposed in the UI. 2) User alert creation, deletion, or modification via the UI or API. * We ...more »
