We're currently doing some research around VMware® vCenter™ logging support with Log and Event Manager. In order to accomplish our research and understand the format of the vCenter™ logs, we need log samples from vCenter™ instances, ideally vSphere v6 or v6.5. You can view information on the location of the logs files via this VMware® KB - Location of VMware vCenter Server log files.
Based on our research, vCenter™ admins are primarily interested in the main vCenter™ server log, namely vpxd.log. However, if there are other log files within vCenter™ you are interested in monitoring, we'd really like to obtain log samples and discuss the use cases for monitoring these various logs with you.
Please submit compressed log samples to my e-mail address below. If your sample is too large to transmit via e-mail, just let me know and I can provide file sharing details. Please note that all log samples will be treated confidentially. Sanitized logs will also suffice.
Thwack points will be awarded on receipt of log samples.
