Log Insight Agent - send logs to different targets

Our team supports the Operating System, while the Application Team supports their application. The Application Team already has their own Log Insight cluster setup to collect their application logs with the LI Agent. Because of this, we are unable to use the LI Agent to collect the Operating System logs. Ideally we would like to be able to send OS logs to our LI, and application logs to their LI. Forwarding logs from ...more »

General Log Insight Q&A

LI agent download over HTTP

With v3.6 of LI, is it possible to programmatically download the LI agent over unsecured HTTP? Previously, an API call had to be made over HTTPS, which poses a problem for scripting a download for the Windows agent, for example. I'm looking for the simplest way to retrieve the LI agent from the LI cluster (not cache it on a fileserver) so an application blueprint can more easily be made for vRA and added as a component. ...more »

"Auto-Update" configurable per agent

Instead of just being able to enable auto-update for all agents, it would be great to be able to configurable the auto-update-functionality for each agent. (Maybe just simple checkboxes on the "Agents" table?)

 

I am aware that "auto_update=yes" have to be set on the client-side for auto-update to work, but configuring that centrally on Log Insight would make it more practible and offers a better overview.

Compare extract fields on same access.

We need to have a feature where we can compare the extract fields on the same axis. Here is the reason why we need this feature especially when analyse GC logs. Use Case: Say i am using Log Insight to analyse the GC logs. The GC logs will have Initial Heap Size and the Final Heap Size. If we can have a feature where user can decide the axis to compare the extract fields, this will help us interpret the data better. ...more »

Provide SI units for the data parsed from logs

We need to have a feature where we can assign SI units to the numeric values parsed using the logs by writing a filter.

 

Say I am retrieving logs to parse the time taken or memory consumed in the logs. We should have capabilities to add SI units like sec, minutes, Bytes, KB etc.

Enhance logging of Log Insight agent for parsing errors

I was trying to set up a content pack that included a csv parser in the agent configuration that was being pushed out. Because the actual log files contained extra fields that weren't defined in the parser, no fields were getting tagged appropriately. I was able to find this out and fix it eventually, but the Log Insight agent log didn't give any indication that this was happening. It would have reduced my troubleshooting ...more »
