Implementation of intelligent logging and analytics includes connecting vCenter Server, NSX-T Data Center, and Workspace ONE Access to a vRealize Log Insight cluster that you deploy using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

During the deployment, SDDC Manager connects vRealize Log Insight to some of the management components in the management domain. You complete the integration with the SDDC management stack by manually configuring the integration with the NSX Edge nodes and the clustered Workspace ONE Access instance.

For information on the intelligent logging and analytics design, see Detailed Design of Intelligent Logging and Analytics for VMware Cloud Foundation.
