FEATURE REQUEST: vCenter Logging

I would like to request that "Events" typically displayed by vCenter when managed using the vSphere client be able to be analyzed by LEM.

This is beneficial since the ESXi event logging does not not include operational events from the hypervisor in a vCenter managed environment, as a result actions taken against guest VMs are not logged.

It appears that logs may be stored in SQL using the tables “dbo.VPX_EVENT” and “dbo.VPX_EVENT_ARG”

Specific event types of interest are: user login, guest power on, guest power off, guest shutdown, guest reconfigure, guest relocation (migration), guest creation/deletion
