The new feature "Dashboard legend mouse-over in one widget now highlights corresponding chart items across widgets" is really bad on some dashboards, so that some dashboards are not useable anymore, because the screen is filled up with mouse-over informations and on some dashboards it flipps between mouse-over hints and back and back to mouse-over - because of to many informations that will be displayed and between chart ...more »
General Log Insight Q&A
Failed to create cluster snapshot
Hi, Does anyone have any experience in running LI Agent on MS failover clusters? We are trying to monitor the SQL logs and obviously the clustered drive (where the logs exist) are only mounted on one server at a time, so when the LI agent starts on each server, in the pair, one can read the logs drive and the other can't so it ignores that drive as it doesn't exist. When the cluster fails over we need a way of telling ...more »
I noticed that some of the built-in vSphere Log Insight 4.x dashboard queries, for example, the VM Snapshots dashboard, don't seem to work correctly (or perhaps I'm not doing something correctly). The ESXi hosts are 5.5 and 6.0 hosts. For instance - If I open the "VM snapshots created" report, I see that it is filtering on "vmw_esxi_snapshot_operation" contains "create". But that does not bring up any snapshot related ...more »
Why is it that the Log Insight 4.x documentation recommends using a VCSA agent over the syslog forwarding for 6.0? Example: "For earlier versions of vSphere, while the vCenter Server Appliance does contain a syslog daemon that could be used to route logs, the preferred method is to install a vRealize Log Insight agent." Was going to setup the VCSA syslog forwarding as detailed in the following blog post: http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2015/03/a-preview-of-native-syslog-support-in-vcsa-6-0.html ...more »
Do we have a way to import data from SQL/Oracle (From tabels in DB)? Got a customer who needs this - Large Telco
Is it possible now or will it be possible in the short term to use the agent group name as an installation parameter for the Windows and Linux agent so it automatically gets the right config after installation without requiring administrative intervention?
Please see the attached screendump. The trend chart is showing a downwards trend. When I hover the mouse over the icon it shows that there is not difference in past and present trend/the trend is so small that there is little to no difference in the trend.
This is misleading in the sense that the trend is almost non existing
Back in May of 2015, Carlos Sen of VMware published a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHcT4xDyONc) on using vRLI to audit for license compliance using a License Compliance content pack. He provided no information on this nor was it linked to from the video, and I cannot find this in the Solution Exchange or anywhere else. Does this exist publicly, or something similar?
We have syslogs in LI with key-value pairs, and we'd like to show "lookup" values in LI dashboards. For example:
...bytes_in=100 protocol=6 ... or bytes_in=200 protocol=17...
We'd like to display protocols as TCP for 6 and UDP for 17 (and so on). Is there a way to do this in LI?
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 »
