You can view a list of all hosts and devices that send log events to vRealize Log Insight and monitor them.

Entries in host tables expire three months after the last ingested event.


Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight web user interface as a user with the Edit 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.


  1. Click the configuration drop-down menu icon and select Administration.
  2. Under Management, click Hosts.
    Note: If you have configured a vCenter Server to send events and alarms, but have not configured the individual ESXi hosts to send logs, the Hostname column lists both the vCenter Server and the individual ESXi hosts as the source instead of listing just the vCenter Server.

What to do next

Users with administrator privileges can set up a system notification that is sent when hosts have been inactive. For more information, see Configure a System Notification to Report on Inactive Hosts.
