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. (i.e. TestCap > [TestThreshold * (.9)] 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 ...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 »

Full Configuration API

It appears that there has been a start to get some configuration options added to the API. I hope we can get to a point where everything available in the Administration section of the Log Insight appliance becomes available via the API. My most immediate need is user management -- IE, the ability to add a user from AD to LI and, while being added, assign a role(s) to that user. I've already figured out how to do this ...more »

Get support from EMC Common Event Enabler

We are sending audit protocol information from our EMC Isilon using syslog to Log insight but there is a massive delay in between the time it writes to the raw log and the time it has been consumed into the sylog partition. We have been told by EMC that the sheer number of events is what is responsible for this delay and that syslog is not really a performance tool for capturing audit protocol information and to use the ...more »

Export Event Results to VMware support

In customer's environment, all logs are usually collected by VMware LogInsight. Because all logs are in the centralized location would be good if there is a way how to automatically send them to VMware support (GSS). We currently have in LogInsight export event results feature (see attached picture) with two options: 1) Export Event Results 2) Export Chart Data This feature allows us to EXPORT logs (TXT / JSON / ...more »
