VMware vRealize Log Insight 3.3

New features include graduations from our Technology Preview program, like a Query API for programmatic retrieval of events, Multiple IPs in the intergrated load balancer and Webhooks for sending Alerts to other systems. And perhaps most tantalizing, everyone with a vCenter Server license gets a free version of Log Insight. See the full list of what's new in Log Insight 3.3.

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 »

Federated Queries - accross multiple Log Insight clusters

The ability to query multiple LI cluster centrally. This would be similar to the Splunk's architecture of Search headers and Indexers/Forwarders. This could also help to address any maximums of clusters sizes, as you can have the ability to deploy multiple LI clusters as required and query from the one UI!

The ability to search archived data

The requirement would be to have some searchable metadata available that references which NFS archive to mount. With the compression the archive mounts provide, this data set can be extremely fragmented and span months and years. This makes it extremely difficult to pin point historic issue unless your certain of the timeframe and which NFS archive to mount.

Create a setting so the browser remembers the username and password

I would like the product to have a setting so the browser remembers the username and password, so chrome/FF remember name/password in my browser so all I have to do is to hit enter. I need this, since I have to log in quite a lot. Does not have to be on by default.

upgrading Log insight when using LI for vCenter license

I noticed I cannot upgrade Log Insight from 3.3.0 to 3.3.2 when I used vCenter Server license because it doesn't support clustering feature(please see attached screen shot).

 

Even I'm not clustering LI instances, the "upgrade cluster" button is needed for upgrading LI, so what would be the correct way to upgrading it?

YUM and APT repositories for Agent Packages

There should be a YUM and APT repository serving the Log Insight Agent. The repository should be hosted on vmware.com somewhere (e.g., packages.vmware.com, like VMware Tools) and on the Log Insight Server. An administrator or configuration management tool should be able to add this repository to the OS's native package management. Subsequently, they should be able to install or upgrade the Log Insight Agent package ...more »

Mark some events as Interesting

Rare and significant events can often be characterized as Alerts notifying someone or something of an important event. Other log events are of special interest only in context, and do not alone necessitate alerting. These interesting log events can be lost in the noise of chatty systems. When directly reading logs in Interactive Analytics mark some Interesting log events should be annotated with additional information. ...more »
