Log Insight ships with two content packs: General and vSphere. Both of these content packs have been updated for Log Insight 2.5. I would like to cover the updates in these two content packs and how you can best leverage them in your environment.
One of the greatest features of Log Insight is its notion of content packs. Content packs are free plugins into Log Insight with pre-defined knowledge about specific events (for more information check out this post). Content packs are available from a variety of different locations and Log Insight 2.5 includes a new way that makes installing and updating content packs even easier!
The title of this post may make it sound like upgrades are difficult in Log Insight, but actually Log Insight is one of the easiest products to upgrade! From time to time you may experience an error and this post will explain what the errors mean, why they occur, and some best practices to prevent them from happening.
Log Insight 2.5 was announced at VMware Barcelona and today VMware released the Log Insight 2.5 Beta. Unless you are part of the Log Insight community you probably have not heard about all the new features that have been made available since Log Insight 2.0. To date, three Tech Previews (TP) have been released for Log Insight 2.5 and today’s beta serves as TP4.
