Provide mechanism for vRealize Log Insight to create Catalog item in Identity Manager

Provide a mechanism within vRealize Log Insight's Authentication Configuration section that allows for easy creation of the application within the within the catalog for VMware Identity Manager. At the moment, a user must manually create this, an operation that has the potential to change between vIDM releases which complicates the situation and causes a poor UX -- example : https://blogs.vmware.com/services-education-insights/2017/08/vrealize-log-insight-authentication-via-vmware-identity-manager.html ...more »

Time between logs - as numerical value

I am suggesting that you should be able to Select "Time Between first-last" as a value. So if you for example have made a log Query that shows all error logs for a specific event, then you can present how long this event occured. This can also be useful if you have one log entry for start of a deplyment and one for finish, because then you could present build time from the Timediff between the first and last log entry ...more »

Ability to inject data from an external source (DB,etc) in to log streams

I've repeatedly seen a requirement to enrich log event streams within vRLI using field injection of data sourced from external data providers (fetched from database or through REST API calls). To-date the only way to accomplish this is to use another 3rd party product to do the field-injection and/or field-replacement prior to ingestion by vRLI. To-date, we need to implement syslog-ng on an intermediary system, leveraging ...more »

Disable built in system alerts from sending emails

I would like to be able to disable default system alerts, specifically the SSL certificate handshake. I continue to receive alerts due to a an "SSL handshake problem. This may be a problem with the SSL Certificate or with the Network Time Service. In order for Log Insight to accept syslog messages over SSL, a certificate that is validated by the client is required and the clocks of the systems must be in sync." I am receiving ...more »

Add progress status for storage expandtion

Hi Just had to had storage to a Log Insight cluster. I guess I have not do that in a while or atleast I do not remember how long it takes. As it seems like the node is just stuck doing nothing it would be nice if a progress bar/status could be shown on console when storage is expanded. A plus would be is an ETA could be shown as well 🙂 the only way to see that the VM/node is not dead is to look at disk usage ...more »

Generate Support Bundle for Host or Hosts from vRLI Data

Basically, the thought is that we have a UCS Blade based host go down and we've now lost our logs. But wait, we have vRLI running and has those logs, but I don't see anyway to collect a Support Bundle for the host that would include the proper log entries for a SR request with VMware. Well, I can say I want entries from this data range with the hostname of xxx, but am I sure I got what I needed? Also, when I export ...more »

Add conf.d style configuration to liagent's config

I'm deploying systems under ansible and each has different log directories to be pushed. And I might layer different services. Similar to see /etc/rsyslog.conf and rsyslog.d, I'd like to be able to add additional configurations by just simply dropping files into a liagent.d/ directory (the path of which would be defined in the main liagent.ini) This would allow me to drop say a liagent.d/httpd.ini to grab http logs ...more »
