tag new data by source (hostname) instead of via VIP

Some Content packs needs an own VIP to tag incomming data so the dashboards of that content pack can filter it. For instance the NetApp content packs relies on it. This would mean that when you use a broad spectrum of content packs, you need extra VIP's just to tag data special for those content packs. What if you could tag syslog data based on the source. (IP address or hostname).... or by dataset.... This would bring ...more »

Better SSL certificate workflow/UI/UX

The current SSL certificate installation procedure is (IMHO) unnecessarily complex, since 90 % of the work needs to be done manually outside vRLI using weird command line instructions. It's like if the first instruction after buying an IKEA shelf would be "hey, go out and buy some screws and make your own wooden plugs". I think the procedure should be more like in NSX, where the product web UI can be used to create ...more »

Math factor - for values

I was working on making a presentation of different values, and it struck me that it was exposing a lot of different values. One Place i got a Count, and another Place i had MB while on the NeXT one there was bytes. In making comparative Dashboards there should be the ability to use a Math factor for either multiplying or dividing the number you have, so you can alter the exposed value to the desired resultset.

LI Agent to collect Microsoft Event Viewer in XML format

Microsoft (until recently) has not natively supported syslog. Event viewer's native format is XML. While the LI agent can collect event viewer logs, it formats them in a proprietary way. It would be ideal to collect in a standard format so when forwarding such events to a third party syslog destination (e.g. SIEM) the third party could properly parse it (without a custom parser). XML is that standard for Microsoft. ...more »

vROps alert integration

Has anyone has issues with this integration just stopping? I had it working for a month and then it just quit on me. I've opened up a case, but the engineer can't figure it out either. I can create test alert emails that work just fine. Also Launch In-Context works just fine as well so the integration partially works. I've sold the integration between Log Insight and vROps to users around my company. Quite a few are waiting ...more »

invert Gauge chart

I was trying to use the gauge Control to be an alert overview if i had less than a certain number of DNS servers, ESXi hosts and so on. And i thought having it presented With red color when everything was ok, wasnt exactly right. I tried reversing the scale, and that didnt work. Then i tried to adjust the alert values in reverse order, but that didnt work as well. Is there any way to use the gauge Control in reverse?
