The NSX Advanced Load Balancer can save and reuse log searches. A saved search captures the search parameter(s) defined by the currently configured search and allows the same user to retrieve the search later. Searches are tied to the user account and are not visible to other users. This section explores more on the Saved Log Search usability feature.

Saving a Search

Navigate to Applications > Virtual Services. Click a virtual service and navigate to the Logs tab. To save a search, enter at least one search parameter into the search bar. Clicking the star icon to the right of the Search bar brings up a box to input a name for the saved search.

Restoring a Saved Search

To restore and execute a saved search, click the Summaries drop-down menu on the right pane, which can be toggled to show Saved Searches. Click any one of the saved searches displayed below to automatically run the search against the logs for the selected time period. The star in the search box turns yellow, indicating that the search matches an existing saved search.

Removing a Saved Search

A saved search can be removed by clicking the X icon next to it in the Saved Searches list in the sidebar menu.
