VMware vCenter syslog Collector

November 22, 2014 0 By Allan Kjaer

I had a customer, where the vCenter server was running out of disk space, and i turned out to be, the vCenter syslog Collector log file that was growing rapidly, and had grown to +30 GB.

The solution was to disable the debugging on the service in the configuration file: %PROGRAMDATA%\VMware\VMware Syslog Collector\vmconfig-syslog.xml


Changed the level to 0.
