I just concluded my series on Log Insight reference architectures and I wanted to explicitly call out how to properly handle Disaster Recovery (DR) in Log Insight. Read on to learn more!
I have covered Log Insight DR in the past. In this post, I would like to discuss the operational process as well of thought process of failover and failback. Read on to learn more!
From time to time, I hear about the desire to configure two separate Log Insight instances to forward to one another without creating a loop. In this post, I will discuss the reasons for this desired state, the best practice to achieve this desired state and some alternatives to consider. Read on to learn more!
The question of whether Log Insight supports deployment on vSphere stretched clusters has come up multiple times in the last few months. As such, I figured I would cover it in this post. Read on to learn more!
In my first post about Log Insight 2.5 backup and recovery, I talked about deployment types, backup considerations and architecture of the different Log Insight components. In my second post, I talked about how to backup the various components. To conclude the series, I would like to discuss how to restore the various components.
Now that I have talked about the new forwarding feature in Log Insight 2.5, I would like to discuss why you should consider using it if you are not already.
I received a question recently on how to test if the Integrated Load Balancer (ILB) master goes down that another node actually takes over the VIP (i.e. failover). While there is technically no supported way to do this today, read on to learn how I would test this from the CLI.
When architecting a syslog solution, it is important to understand the requirements both from a business and a product perspective. I would like to discuss the different remote syslog architectures that are possible when using vCenter Log Insight.
