You enable the integrated load balancer (ILB) on the cluster so that all log sources can address the cluster by its ILB. By using the ILB, you need not reconfigure all log sources with a new destination address in a future scale-out. Using the ILB also guarantees that vRealize Log Insight accepts all incoming ingestion traffic.
vRealize Log Insight users, using both the Web user interface or API, and clients, ingesting logs via syslog or the Ingestion API, connect to vRealize Log Insight using the ILB address.
A vRealize Log Insight cluster can scale out to 12 nodes, that is, 1 master and 11 worker nodes.
|Decision ID||Design Decision||Design Justification||Design Implication|
|CSDDC-OPS-LOG-001||Deploy a single vRealize Log Insight master node with an integrated load balancer.||
||Creates a single failure domain. The single vRealize Log Insight node must use vSphere HA for availability.|
