You can use system events, alarms, and logs to monitor the health and security of the NSX environment and troubleshoot problems. System EventsSystem events are records of system actions. Each event has a severity level, such as informational or critical, to indicate how serious the event is. System events are also pushed as SNMP traps so that any SNMP management software can monitor NSX system events.. AlarmsAlarms are notifications that are activated in response to an event, a set of conditions, or the state of an object. Alarms, along with other alerts, are displayed on the NSX Dashboard and other screens on the vSphere Web Client UI. NSX and Host LogsYou can use logs that are in the various NSX components and on the hosts to detect and troubleshoot problems. Audit LogsThe audit logs record all actions by users who log in to NSX Manager. Configuring a Syslog ServerYou can configure a syslog server to be a repository of logs from NSX components and hosts. Collecting Technical Support LogsOn occasions, you might need to collect technical support logs from the NSX components and the hosts to report an issue to VMware.
