Support german language for content packs

I would appreciate support for the content packs for german language, e.g. for german vCenter systems or german Windows-systems.

 

Currently my Windows machines (even Active Directory) are [sadly] running with german language and it's not that easy so switch the system language on Domaincontrollers afterwards.

Event Fields Not Showing Custom Field

When creating a custom extracted field for Windows Security logs, the field correctly highlights the string of text I need, but does not appear on the list of event fields that I can use for creating dashboards etc for my query. This has happened several times for different scenarios and appears to be related to including the new line property (\n). Custom fields that I created without the new line property appear in ...more »

New Mouse-Over feature (v4.5) - need to disable, maybe per Dashboard or globally

The new feature "Dashboard legend mouse-over in one widget now highlights corresponding chart items across widgets" is really bad on some dashboards, so that some dashboards are not useable anymore, because the screen is filled up with mouse-over informations and on some dashboards it flipps between mouse-over hints and back and back to mouse-over - because of to many informations that will be displayed and between chart ...more »

Bug - Content pack loading after uninstall

Hi

 

After uninstalling a content pack. Log Insight still tries to access the last used content pack, which in this case has been uninstalled. This results in Log Insight loading "forever" - Atleast i did not see it timeout.

 

Workaround close all browsers and log in again.

General Log Insight recommendations/comments

As a VMware partner and consultant in the cloud and everything-VMware-space, I have been using this tool for a while now, and am extremely excited to see that, with v3.3, anyone with a vCenter license can use this tool. I think this opens up tons of possibilities and will hopefully generate a big uptick in adoption, which will hopefully drive more development, content packs, and more use cases. Here are some thoughts ...more »

Lookup field value

We have syslogs in LI with key-value pairs, and we'd like to show "lookup" values in LI dashboards. For example:

 

...bytes_in=100 protocol=6 ... or bytes_in=200 protocol=17...

 

We'd like to display protocols as TCP for 6 and UDP for 17 (and so on). Is there a way to do this in LI?

Agents, MS Cluster Services and Logs on cluster disks

Hi, Does anyone have any experience in running LI Agent on MS failover clusters? We are trying to monitor the SQL logs and obviously the clustered drive (where the logs exist) are only mounted on one server at a time, so when the LI agent starts on each server, in the pair, one can read the logs drive and the other can't so it ignores that drive as it doesn't exist. When the cluster fails over we need a way of telling ...more »

Fail to add IPv6 Virtual IP

I've deployed a IPv6-only 3.3.1 loginsight, and wanted to add a virtual IP. The DNS-registration is correct from FQDN to IP-address that I try to add (and the reverse). I've also checked via shell access on the loginsight vapp.

 

There is only one vapp in the cluster, but I guess that is not relevant.

Trend - misleading icon

Hi

 

Please see the attached screendump. The trend chart is showing a downwards trend. When I hover the mouse over the icon it shows that there is not difference in past and present trend/the trend is so small that there is little to no difference in the trend.

 

This is misleading in the sense that the trend is almost non existing
