Ability to manage the resources dedicated to perform queries

As a vRLI administrator, I would like to manage how much resources are devotes to performing queries for different tenants on the same vRLI cluster because I want to avoid the noisy neighbor problem if one tenant is performing a disproportional number of queries relative to other tenants.

Incorrect Time range values are displayed in Interactive Analytics page

The Time range displayed below the Time range selection dropdown in Interactive Analytics page does not do justice to the value selected in the dropdown. For instance, when "Latest 5 minutes of data" is selected, the time range "2016-11-22 00:31:31.600 to 2016-11-22 01:03:50.077" is displayed, which is incorrect. This issue persists for all the value selections in the dropdown. Incorrect time ranges are displayed.

PCI-DSS - logs/data Integrity

Offer assistance with queries that take too long

Today, when performing a query that takes a long time, we display a progress bar and a pause button where the log messages are displayed. If a query takes longer that several seconds to complete, the vRLI UI should offer tips while the query is completing. For example.. "Your date filters include X days and Y events, you may want to consider reducing the length of time..." "Your filters do not include a hostname, you ...more »

Force new config file

I would like to see the ability to force agents in a Group to copy the config from the agent Group into their liagent.ini file as startup config. After doing a mass deploy of agents i found that all agents come With auto_update=yes commented out, and if I use the option to change it in the agent Groups, it will not work as the agent obviously reads the local file at the time where the auto update is triggered.

A method to acquire data about past queries

As a vRLI administrator, I need a method to get data about past queries to investigate past query attempts that may have not performed well.

 

The ability to investigate past queries allows me to validate whether the query failure or poor performance was the result of an outage with the infrastructure hosting vRLI or some other issue.

Configured alerts don't seem to be sending out

The past day and a half, seems that alerts have stopped being sent out from the appliance. We have restarted server and services to no avail. Test alert emails were taking a while recently to complete, and are more on demand now. However, seems that the configured alerts still are not sending out.
