vRealize Log Insight collects log events from all management components in each region of the SDDC.
In a ROBO SDDC, deploy a vRealize Log Insight configuration that consists of the following entities.
3-node (medium-size) vRealize Log Insight cluster per region in the hub with log forwarding configured between the regions. This topology provides high availability, scale-out capacity up to sixteen nodes, and mirrored data sets per region.
3-node (small-size) vRealize Log Insight cluster in each ROBO site. This configuration supports localized high availability and increased log ingestion rates in each ROBO site. The ROBO site forwards log data to each region. In this way, you implement a single pane of glass to all logging data from the ROBO site in each region of the hub.
