What's New in vRealize Log Insight 3.3

vRealize Log Insight 3.3 includes new and enhanced features that cover all major areas of the product including installation, configuration, licensing, alerting, dashboards, reports, and policies. This release introduces the following enhancements.

  • New and Enhanced Agent Parsers
    New Syslog, Labeled Tab-Separated Values (LTSV), and Regex parsers are now available. vRealize Log Insight 3.3 also includes enhancements and improvements to previously released parsers.
  • New Interactive Analytics
    vRealize Log Insight 3.3 includes a tabular view of chart data to easily spot the top results of an aggregation query. You can also optimize your Interactive Analytics view with a more flexible event display.
  • Multiple Virtual IP Addressing
    You can configure multiple virtual IP addresses (vIPs) for the Integrated Load Balancer. You can also configure a list of static tags for each vIP so that each log message received from the vIP is annotated with the configured tags.
  • Alert Webhooks
    The new alert notification transport provides event notification over HTTP POST. This enhancement enables potential integrations with other platforms (for example, Slack, SocialCast, etc.).
  • New Product Licensing

  • New Windows Agent Support
    The vRealize Log Insight Windows agent now supports Windows 10.
  • IPv6 Support for vRealize Log Insight Agents
    This release includes support for IPv6. You can now use IPv6 addresses in the same way as IPv4 addresses.
  • Query API
    You can use the new API to enable remote clients to programmatically query the vRealize Log Insight platform remotely to retrieve events and aggregations over events.
  • Enhancements
    • The VMware vRealize Log Insight Linux Agent now collects log files rotated with copytruncate.
  • Preview Features
    VMware vRealize Log Insight 3.3 includes several features that you can use on a preview basis.
