Feature Requests

Ability to turn off "Oldest Data Will be Unsearchable Soon" emails

Our Log Insight users receive emails from Log Insight saying the "Oldest Data Will be Unsearchable Soon". This seems to be an alert that just says LI is getting close to reusing some of the storage. Isn't that the way it's supposed to work? We'd like to be able to turn these off so they don't get mixed with email alerts we need to respond to

Log Insight to properly handle Microsoft DNS debug text log

Within our environment our security team would like to enable a subset of the DNS debug log and use Log Insight to ingest it. This would allow us to capture requests to our internal space incorrectly leaving to internet resolvers, for instance. And that works well. By enabling Log Insight we would be able to keep the text debug log itself small. However this type of 'debug' log does not roll over to a newly named file ...more »

Allow equivalent entries to be colored the same way across widgets

If we have a dashboard and >1 widget in that dashboard tracks the same field, it would be great if there was a way to specify that the color should be the same across widgets when the same entry is being reported. For example, in my Log Insight instance, we track vCenter user logins and vCenter users creating tasks. In both cases, the value on which we are reporting is the same (vCenter users) but the report itself is ...more »

role based access for dashboards

When a user or group of users access is limited by data sets it still can open all dashboards.

I would like to have the RBAC also for dashboards, so you can hide one or more dashboards for a user or group of users.

 

Now a user who have restricted access by a data set still sees all dashboards..... which is a bit confusing for these users.

Configure ESXi syslog over SSL/TLS by default

When configuring ESXi hosts to send messages via syslog, the ESXi hosts need to be configured to trust the public key of the Log Insight server. Today this needs to be done by hand. Manipulating the ESXi host's CA trust store is done via "esxcli system security certificatestore", and esxcli is already used to read and manipulate the ESXi host's syslog configuration itself. Log Insight should support automatically pushing ...more »

Customize colors in charts

When group by a field in a chart it would be great if I can associate an expected value with always the same color. Use case: I want to monitor my automation test logs in LI I have built proper query that returns the executed tests grouped by their result. I know that possible result value could be PASSED, FAILED or SKIPPED. So I want in my chart PASSED to be marked always with green, FAILED with red and SKIPPED with ...more »

Log Insight alerts need more flexible configuration

The alert type that uses grouping from the alert query doesn't allow an alert to be trigger when only one match is found (assuming count is metric being displayed in the grouping query). It's true that the "on any match" option will take care of this, but the emails sent by these alerts don't include the information we would like to see when configuring an alert that uses grouping.

Hosts in maintenance and email alert info

Currently log insight will send a email alert for "Host Connection and Power State". It will send this regardless of whether the offending host was in maintenance mode or not.

 

It would be nice to ignore alerts from hosts in maintenance mode.

 

I would also like to see the following information in email alerts:

 

The last 5 tasks performed on the host and by who.

 

Which vcenter and cluster the host belongs to.

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.
