Configuring Remote Syslog on vSphere Using vCenter Log Insight

Now that you have vCenter Log Insight deployed and configured, you need to configure sources to send their log messages to Log Insight. If you enabled vCenter Server integration then you should start to receive log messages, but this is only the beginning of configuring remote syslog sources.

IMPORTANT: Configuring vCenter Server integration does not configure vCenter Server or ESX/ESXi hosts connected to vCenter Server to send remote syslog to Log Insight. For more information continue reading!

Let’s start by going over what Log Insight supports today and what mechanisms it has to configure vSphere devices for you.

Announcing vCenter Log Insight!

Do you use log messages to troubleshoot issues and perform root cause analysis? Have you ever opened a service request with VMware or any other vendor and been requested to upload a support bundle? If you answered yes to the second question then you should have answered yes to the first. What many people do not realize is that log messages typically provide as much information as traditional monitoring tools and are often used by support teams to resolve an incident. In addition, log messages are usually easier to understand than monitoring tools such as SNMP that require you to translate information like those found in MIBs.
Today, VMware announced a new product that allows administrators and executives to get better insight into their environments via log messages. The product is called vCenter Log Insight and it is a log aggregation, correlation, reporting, and monitoring tool specifically tailored for VMware products.
Why would VMware want to get into this market?

Introducing VMware vRealize!

To date, VMware has had two primary brands being vCenter and vCloud, however many products did not technically fall under one or the other. A big announcement today prior to the start of VMworld US 2014 is that all of VMware management products are being rebranded under the name vRealize as well a renaming of several management products. This impacts products including vCAC, vC Ops, and of course Log Insight.
