Agent group as installation parameter

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?

Trend - misleading icon

Hi

 

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

Where is the License Compliance content pack?

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?

Lookup field value

We have syslogs in LI with key-value pairs, and we'd like to show "lookup" values in LI dashboards. For example:

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?

vROps alert integration

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 »

How to influence event_type

Hi

 

I was hoping that I could use machine learning(event trends), to look at firewall logs. But as it sees the firewall logs as one event type, nothing useful can be gain from this.

 

Is there a way to influence or manipulate how the event type is found ?

 

Like I stated I want to use machine learning to see if "new" network patterns happens over time

agent machine shows under hosts

IHAC, who installed and configured a windows agent in one of the Windows 2012 machines and pointed to redirect all the logs to VIP ( integrated load balancer) .

 

However the hostname of the windows box is showing up under Hosts instead of Agents tab (in administration tab)

 

Customer do want to know why it's shown under hosts and how to remove the hosts which displayed under hosts tab manually

 

Thanks
