You can monitor the status of the vRealize Log Insight Windows and Linux agents and view current statistics about their operation.

About this task

Only those agents that are configured to send data through CFAPI appear on the Agents page. Agents that are configured to send data through syslog appear on the Hosts page, as with other syslog sources.

If you change protocol from CFAPI to syslog, statistics cease to be updated and represented on the Agent page anymore and agent status is shown as disconnected. Data represented there is being sent from vRealize Log Insight agent every thirty seconds.

Note:

If you change a host IP for a vRealize Log Insight server in agent configuration, the agent resets page stats to zero.

Prerequisites

Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight Web user interface as a user with the View Admin permission. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.

Procedure

  1. Click the configuration drop-down menu icon and select Administration.
  2. Under Management, click Agents.

    Status information for each agent that sends data with CFAPI appears.

What to do next

You can use the information from the Agents page to monitor the operation of the installed vRealize Log Insight Windows and Linux agents. Click the agent hostname to go to the Interactive Analytics page for that host.
