Virtual IP Address

Virtual IP Address – Would like to extend the tagging capabilities to ports. So for example instead of creating a new VIP for a different tagging set… create a new port to listen on for associating the tags. This would allow for much greater number of unique destinations to tag on (not expecting the agents to use this, rather our syslog infrastructure would leverage the custom ports).

Federated Queries

Federated Queries – Would like to have the ability to query across multiple Log Insight Clusters to address scalability (cluster size of 12/host size of 4TB) and to optimize log availability in a multi-tenant environment (allow for all tenants to have some level of log access to hardware/network logs without duplicating data to each tenant).
