You can uninstall the Log Insight Linux Agent RPM package.


  • Log in as root or use sudo to run console commands.

  • Log in to the Linux machine on which you installed the Log Insight Linux Agent, open a terminal console and run pgrep liagent to verify that the VMware Log Insight Linux Agent is installed and running.


Run the following command replacing VERSION and BUILD_NUMBER with the version and build number of the installed agent.

rpm -e VMware-Log-Insight-Agent-VERSION-BUILD_NUMBER


The uninstaller stops the VMware Log Insight Linux Agent daemon and removes all its files except its own logs from the system.
