Operations management includes vRealize Network Insight, vRealize Log Insight, and vRealize Operations to provide real-time monitoring and logging for the infrastructure and compute workloads.

vRealize Log Insight

vRealize Log Insight collects data from ESXi hosts using the syslog protocol. vRealize Log Insight has the following capabilities:

  • Connects to other VMware products such as vCenter Server to collect events, tasks, and alarm data.

  • Integrates with vRealize Operations to send notification events and activate launch in context.

  • Functions as a collection and analysis point for any system that sends syslog data.

vRealize Operations

vRealize Operations tracks and analyzes the operation of multiple data sources by using specialized analytic algorithms. These algorithms help vRealize Operations learn and predict the behavior of every object it monitors. Users access this information by using views, reports, and dashboards.

vRealize Network Insight

vRealize Network Insight collects and analyzes information about the operation of network data sources such as NSX-T Data Center and vCenter Server. Administrators access this information by using dashboards.
