How to Deploy Log Insight with less than 500GB of Storage

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.

Log Insight Agent 4.5: Enhanced Silent Install Options

Since the Log Insight Agent was introduced, it has supported silent installation options to assist in automated deployments. The silent installation options were primarily focused around server, port, and protocol specifications. With the change of enabling SSL by default in Log Insight 4.0, additional parameters became necessary to automate the deployment of the agent in all environments. In addition, there have been feature requests to control other aspects of the agent during installation. In version 4.5, additional parameters were introduced to provide the flexibility you need.

vIDM: HA for a Small Number of Users

Someone approached me recently with the following question:

I am in the process of integrating vIDM with Log Insight and have a business requirement that vIDM be highly available. Currently, the conceptual design is looking like a 2-node cluster behind a NSX based LB. I will not have more than 15 – 20 admins using vRLI, and I’m therefore wondering if the design requires an external SQL database or not?

What is my recommendation? Read on to learn more!
