Log browser is a plug-in to the vSphere Web Client, and is part of the vCenter Server installation package. To use the log browser, you must deploy the log browser plug-in.

If you deploy the log browser plug-in, you can view, search, and export one or more vCenter Server and ESXi log files at a time using the log browser. You can also export, manage, and view different log types.

Note:

The log browser cannot be used for the Platform Services Controller in the vCenter Server Appliance or vCenter Server on Windows.
