VCM5034 - Troubleshooting w/ Log Insight and vCOPs @ Cox Communications Extras!

We unfortunately did not demo the vCOPs integration w/ Log Insight.  I did record those videos though so I figure I would share them here.  No audio, but just videos.

Here we are demonstrating the 'context' awareness menu where you can select an object in vCOPs, in this case a VM, and jump into Log Insight w/ a pre-populated query.  It's only context aware from the aspect of object selection, meaning, the VM and the host it's running on, but imagine the integration possibilities.

This second video just shows how you can make custom queries and just by aspect of those entries showing up, send an associated alarm to vCOPs for tracking/notification purposes.  The video shows you the idea of finding 'cloned vm' entries and having log insight insert those as a specific type of alert in vCOPs.  The video is poorly edited and is meant to show you the 'concept':


Anyway, feel free to post comments here.  I'm always monitoring and willing to answer questions.  Hope you enjoyed our session and got something out of it.

Why didn't you get to demo?

Why weren't you able to demo?

We were more focused on the 'how' rather than the ancillary functions.

Hey Chris,

My name is Kimberly Horte. I saw your account on LinkedIn and I wanted to reach out to you about a couple of career opportunities I have. One is a Virtualization Engineer position, but I also have a Deployment Engineer position that is just stellar! I know it's kind of weird to reach out to you via your blog about this, but I ran out of inmail credits! Please e-mail me back at kimberly@smart-tek.net. Have a great day!
