As a Log Insight user and a member of a devops team, I would like to... * be able to set the aggregation as the "raw value" of an extracted field * be able to configure the unit of time to any arbitrary length of time ...because... * I have created a script that generates a log message with an aggregated value * the aggregated value within the log messages generated by the script can be extracted using the extracted ...more »
The current SSL certificate installation procedure is (IMHO) unnecessarily complex, since 90 % of the work needs to be done manually outside vRLI using weird command line instructions. It's like if the first instruction after buying an IKEA shelf would be "hey, go out and buy some screws and make your own wooden plugs". I think the procedure should be more like in NSX, where the product web UI can be used to create ...more »
For some of our network appliances we had to create a dataset for access control. I'd like to leverage that dataset as a filter for querying. It will be handy when creating alerts for specific groups of objects.
I was working on making a presentation of different values, and it struck me that it was exposing a lot of different values. One Place i got a Count, and another Place i had MB while on the NeXT one there was bytes. In making comparative Dashboards there should be the ability to use a Math factor for either multiplying or dividing the number you have, so you can alter the exposed value to the desired resultset.
The importer today does not support uncompressing bz2 -- it should especially given that VMware support bundles use bz2.
Microsoft (until recently) has not natively supported syslog. Event viewer's native format is XML. While the LI agent can collect event viewer logs, it formats them in a proprietary way. It would be ideal to collect in a standard format so when forwarding such events to a third party syslog destination (e.g. SIEM) the third party could properly parse it (without a custom parser). XML is that standard for Microsoft. ...more »
We are trying to only forward specific NSX rules to Splunk. Rules that are in specific subnet ranges. I'd like the ability to do a filter on a regex search of vmw_nsx_firewall_dst or any of the other NSX fields.
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 »
LI version: 3.6
After upgrading content pack on 3.6 Log insight from 3.6 to 4.0 result is at being all dashboard removed // disappear.
Is this because 4.0 CP should be run only on 4.0 and higher LI or?
Is there a way how to recover previous dashboards configuration?
I was trying to use the gauge Control to be an alert overview if i had less than a certain number of DNS servers, ESXi hosts and so on. And i thought having it presented With red color when everything was ok, wasnt exactly right. I tried reversing the scale, and that didnt work. Then i tried to adjust the alert values in reverse order, but that didnt work as well. Is there any way to use the gauge Control in reverse?
upgrade from 4.0 to 4.3 failed on pre-validation
