Log Insight Agent: Linux Configurations for Common Applications

In my previous post, I discussed how to configure vRA logging. In this post I would like to provide some Log Insight Linux agent configuration samples for common Linux and VMware applications. You may notice some duplication of information. I will be updating this post over time so be sure to check back from time to time!

NOTES:

– If you are running an agent version 2.5 or newer you do not need to restart the agent for changes to take effect. For version older than 2.5 you do need to restart the agent for changes to take effect.

– You can add configuration client-side via the liagent.ini file, server-side from /admin/agents or a combination of both.

– The configurations listed below are meant to be samples and may need to be adjusted for your specified environment.
