Need true reporting capabilities in Log Insight

Dashboards make it possible to view data visually over time and alerts make it possible to get notified about events seen in the environment. What is needed is true reporting and more specifically: * Scheduling of when to run reports (both time of day and frequency) * Ability to at least email reports (pdf, html, and csv should be supported at a minimum) * Ability to include dashboards in reports (including legends) ...more »

Alert when log source is not sending logs

Currently there is no alerting when Log Insight Master or Worker is not receiving logs/API events from its workers or agents. Part of the PCI compliance requires notification when a stoppage of logs is detected.

 

If this could be an alarm, or an automated email that is sent out, and have the ability to set certain thresholds (no logs within 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 3 hours, etc), that would be great.

Drop specific incoming messages

An administrator may deem some messages undesirable, either specific logs produced by a source or a whole source. Such messages may result in CPU/disk resources being expended unnecessarily. Undesired log messages may result in Log Insight's data store being rotated more quickly than desired. In terms of licensing, one may wish to drop log messages from unlicensed sources, restricting sources from which log messages are ...more »

Transaction support

Log Insight should facilitate understanding transactional flows, where a group of log messages tell a story together. The transaction identifier should be definable in content packs and by users, similar to an extracted field. For example: - vCenter, vpxa and hostd tasks are identified by an opID, relating task Start, Finish and subtasks within. - ESXi vMotion tasks are identified by an MigID, relating Source and Destination ...more »

Export Event Results to VMware support

In customer's environment, all logs are usually collected by VMware LogInsight.

Support globs for filelog directory option in Windows Agent

The agent should support globs (asterisk and wildcard) for folders. THe use case is IIS where multiple domains exist on the same server. Something like this

 

directory= E:\sitecoredata\*\Data\logs

include=log*.txt

So then I could make one that does them all type thing.

 

Globs are supported for files so this is an inconsistency in the product as well.

Deduplication of Data

I was wondering if you guys could make the data be zipped/dedupped during the night? If it already does dedup or something I guess its fine but it would seem that log insight takes a lot more space then our other logging system. We are trying to move everything to log insight but space constraints don't seem to be matching up.
