It is that time of the year again — the Top vBlog voting is now open! Just like previous years, you are asked to vote based on criteria including longevity, length, frequency, and quality. Like the last few years, I have blogged extensively on Log Insight — I wish that had a top Management Blog category! In addition, I have covered other VMware topics including vSphere, NSX, VIDM, and PowerCLI. In total, I published over 90 posts in 2016 — a decrease from 2015, but I hope an increase in quality of content. I appreciate your consideration in voting this year!

In this post, I would like to show how you can do suffix queries in Log Insight. 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!
