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 »

Application Autodiscovery

When Content packs are added post agent deployment on large estates, each agent's configuration requires updating to add the relevant section to the liagent.ini or the liagent-effective.ini. The recommended route is via the UI, but when the estate is large and there are many forwarders, then it becomes quite a task to determine which content packs are relevant to each of the target agents. It would be fantastic (and ...more »

Ability to make changes to a dashboard and save ALL of them in one go

The ability to be able to make all changes to dashboards one after the other and hit the save button. Now, we’ve got to make a change, save it, go back to editing the dashboard, make the next change, save, rinse and repeat. Gets tedious.

Select what information gets emailed out by Log Insight

The need to be able to select which information the system emails out. For now, it sends out all system info – such as space remaining, vCenter disconnection and reconnection etc. I need to be able to select which team/DL receives what kind of system emails. Managers for instance don’t want/need to see vCenter disconnections/reconnections. What’s happened is people have setup Outlook rules which flag email from Log Insight ...more »

Changing account UPN's

Where users are AD group based and their UPN changes they are then unable to login as Log Insight caches the UPN and uses that to authenticate them. If we remove the users from Log Insight and they log back in they have access again, but their profiles (custom dashboards, etc. are lost). I can't see any way of updating their UPN in Log Insight. Is there a way to do so so that we do not lose their dashboards by deleting ...more »

Event Fields Not Showing Custom Field

When creating a custom extracted field for Windows Security logs, the field correctly highlights the string of text I need, but does not appear on the list of event fields that I can use for creating dashboards etc for my query. This has happened several times for different scenarios and appears to be related to including the new line property (\n). Custom fields that I created without the new line property appear in ...more »
