In the vsphere content pack, there is a pane under vcenter server overview where it Counts "vcenter servers integrated". This Count is very wrong, as it Counts occurences of the Word vcenter-server (despite showing it should Count Sources) instead of unique hostnames. In my installation it therefore shows 71 vcenters, instead of the 4 it should be. The reason is that the loginsight also receives logs regarding DRS rules, ...more »
IHAC customer (CBA) that needs to retain up to 3 months of data in vRLI. Unfortunately, my customer's vRLI setup is now only retaining 7-8 days of data (its slowly been dropping with the migrations)… this is all due to the volume of DFW (NSX) logs… The customer has discussed dropping all accepted/allowed but customer security policy informed the customer that it wouldn't be allowed to do so. The customer has queried ...more »
Cross-linking from VMTN, for more visibility! https://communities.vmware.com/thread/579407 Recap: When I try and configure vIDM as an authentication provider via the API, the API is rejecting due to using a "custom CA certificate" (in this instance, self-signed).... I would think the property for accepting the certificate would tell the API to, well, accept the certificate... but, that doesn't seem to be the case. Shouldn't ...more »
to leverage the most of LI it would be great to have an Agent for ARM Platforms. Lot of IoT Platforms (this includes Raspi and Unifi Cloud Key) are based on ARM and an Agent would be great.

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 »
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 »
What ever happened to the Puppet Enterprise content pack that VMware created for vRealize Log insight?
Now that Puppet is a first class citizen in vRA, I think this plugin is even more important than ever.
I have Log Insight version 4.3 installed, and I would like the capability of limiting who can schedule a query or search. I know there isn't a capability in Log Insight for this feature (yet). I know that version 2.0 introduced an alert.log file. I have a script that stays in memory. The script reads the alert.log file. If a new line is found, then the script will parse the current line and send data (syslog or snmp) ...more »
Log files that do not append does not get caught by Log Insight Agent. If it overwrites a log file with similar contents (such as change a number on a line), Log Insight does not detect it.
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 »
