Custom time for each widgets

Today I need to choose if I want the last 48hours or a custom time for all the widgets of my dashboard. I would like to choose if I want a widget to show me the entries for the last 48h and another one for the last 7 days within the same dashboard. I want to make a selection "per widget"

Weekly KB Content Pack

Idea is to take the weekly KB blog and create a content pack that is updated weekly to scan for known issues.

 

E.g of issues detected that could be flagged in LogInsight.

Not sure if this should go under feature request or content packs.

Chart colored incorrectly

Hi

 

Was playing around the the vRops content pack trying to troubleshoot a collector error. After selecting the different parts of the chart data, I cleared the selected field and set time range back to 48 hours and clicked the search button, only to get a chart back which had the same color multiple times. See attached screen dump

API - Dashboard Creation

Would like an API to create dashboards, perhaps using CSV input with a list of hostnames and dashboard names.

 

My use case is separate set of hostnames each in a separate dashboard, with a Query List displaying on each dashboard, making it one click for our support teams to get to a usable query page by each customer environment.

General Log Insight Q&A

Fail to add IPv6 Virtual IP

I've deployed a IPv6-only 3.3.1 loginsight, and wanted to add a virtual IP. The DNS-registration is correct from FQDN to IP-address that I try to add (and the reverse). I've also checked via shell access on the loginsight vapp.

 

There is only one vapp in the cluster, but I guess that is not relevant.

Widget to dynamically alter other widgets

It would be nice to be able to add a widget that has the power to update other widgets on the same dashboard. The use case would be for widgets that are aggregating data from many hosts, and you want to quickly add a filter to all of them to see the scope narrowed to a single host or tag value. This would be of particular benefit for helping search through log bundles uploaded from the import tool, as user-specified ...more »

Error configuring LI integration in vRO 7.0.1

Not sure if this belongs here, but wanted to post it for the LI folks' eyes before declaring it a bug. Basically, when trying to configure LI integration from vRO 7.0.1 via the Control Center, we get an "HTTP Status 500 - Failed to edit Log Insight Agent configuration file!" error message. Logs aren't particularly helpful and mention this message in /var/log/messages. It seems to happen regardless of the auth type (vRA ...more »

Alert on missing data

Many applications log some sort of heartbeat data, or are otherwise expectedly chatty. It would be nice to be able to alert on a query returning less than an expected result over time. If a host or other device suddenly goes silent, having the ability to be notified about it would be very useful.
