When deploying Log Insight, you have the option of selecting various deployment sizes. By default, Log Insight defaults to small. The best practice for production workloads is to deploy at least medium and whenever possible large. You will notice that by default and even with the larger deployment sizes that Log Insight allocates just over 500GB of space. In general, 500GB is not a lot of space for events and for production environments you will often need more space. With that said, some environments are small and do not require this amount of space/retention. One question I am asked is how to deploy Log Insight with less than 500GB of space.

I recently covered the newly supported VIDM integration in Log Insight 4.3. In this post, I would like to focus on the “Redirect URL Host” option to discuss how it works and what is required to make it work properly. Read on to learn more.
A few months back, I blogged about Log Insight GET configuration APIs. At the time, my goal was to provide a set of BASH functions that could be used to call Log Insight APIs and also to provide some minimum documentation on the Tech Preview configuration APIs in Log Insight 3.6. For one of my vBrownBag sessions at VMworld, I updated these functions and included some POST configuration APIs as well. Read on to learn more!
I am happy to announce that official API documentation has been released and is available on both the Log Insight 3.3 and Log Insight 3.6 documentation…
Log Insight notifies users when it is unable to maintain the defined retention period by sending a system notification. In this post, I would like to walk through what the system notifications mean in a clustered environment. Read on to learn more!
Time machine is a great piece of backup software that comes with Macs. How Time Machine works is that it backs up based on a policy until there is no space left on the destination. When space is depleted, Time Machine deletes the oldest backups. While the process makes sense, it does raise the question of how to backup multiple Macs to the same Synology device. I will cover the process in this post.
