VMware Log Management

The Need for Monitoring VMware Server Logs

Companies are increasingly moving to virtual environment. There are many advantages such as flexibility, neutrality of OS, augmentation of hardware resources. On a virtual platform, companies can create and delete virtual machines at their own convenience. The OS of the virtual machines can be Windows, Linux, etc. Since the virtual machines are created and deleted at will, the hardware resource can be optimally utilized. VMware is a popular virtual platform. But monitoring VMware logs is found rare in companies. EventLog Analyzer has taken the first step to monitor the VMware virtual platform logs. VMware ESXi and ESX server logs are monitored and reports, alerts can be generated for the same.
