You can modify the logging level for the Broker Agent service by modifying the broker agent configuration.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Horizon Connection Server host where the broker agent is installed with a domain user account.

    Local accounts do not have the necessary privileges to configure all settings.

  2. From the Start menu, select VMware > vRealize Operations Horizon Broker Agent Settings.
  3. In the vRealize Operations Horizon Broker Agent Service section on the vRealize Operations Horizon Broker Settings dialog box, select a log level from the Log level drop-down menu.

    The available log levels are Off, Error, Warning, Information, and Verbose. The log level is set to Information by default. To troubleshoot problems, set the logging level to Information. To view detailed messages, including micro steps, queries, and returned results, set the logging level to Verbose.

    Note:

    If you set the logging level to Verbose, log files can become large very quickly. Set the logging level to Verbose only for short periods of time. Broker agent log files are purged once a week.

  4. Click Apply to save your settings.

    The status of your configuration appears in the Applying Configuration Settings window.

  5. After the configuration settings are successfully applied, click Close to close the Applying Configuration Settings window.
