Content pack KB article included in search results

I love that the 1.5 version includes related kb articles in the notes section of each query in the content pack. I'd like to see this taken further. Add a link to the KB each log result from a search.

Variable retention periods

Hello,

 

In our environment we have different needs for log retention. For example my vsphere logs can be aged after a month while my firewall logging should never be deleted.

Datatype-aware field extraction

Sometimes log messages contain embedded data with a fixed standard format, like XML, JSON or CSV, either when logging about configuration/state information or when the messages aren't really logs.

Drop specific incoming messages

An administrator may deem some messages undesirable, either specific logs produced by a source or a whole source. Such messages may result in CPU/disk resources being expended unnecessarily.

Deduplication of Data

I was wondering if you guys could make the data be zipped/dedupped during the night? If it already does dedup or something I guess its fine but it would seem that log insight takes a lot more space then our other logging system.

Tiered online, searchable data storage

When Log Insight's local capacity to store messages is exhausted, messages are archived to a remote NFS location. It would be beneficial if this flow could be tiered such that data was available online as today but moved to a slower & higher-capacity tiered disks as it ages. Consider the use-case of keeping the most recent 50GB of data on SSD, migrating it to ~5TB of slower spindles over time while keeping it searchable, ...more »

display Log retention and disk consumption rate

It would be nice if Log Insight could display the current log retention time and disk consumption rate (x GB/day) next to the live storage statistics in the System Monitor. I know you get this info through the Admin Alert mail, but why not show it in the System Monitor?
