Simplifying Root Cause Analysis and IT Troubleshooting of Infrastructure Hardware and Software

Machine-generated log data contains valuable operational and diagnostics details regarding IT infrastructure that can be used to identify and troubleshoot IT problems. VMware vCenter Log Insight provides automated log analytics to deliver real-time insights from log data produced by applications, physical hardware and virtualized infrastructure helping to minimize troubleshooting times as well as improve operational efficiency and cut IT costs. The product delivers automated log management through log aggregation, analytics and search. Administrators rely on an intuitive graphical user interface featuring search, pre-configured dashboards and robust reporting capabilities.

Content packs are easy to develop and use within VMware vCenter Log Insight. VMware vCenter Log Insight enables partners to produce content packs featuring pre-defined log queries, extracted fields, pre-built dashboards and alerts specific to their offering.
