VMware Event Log

VMware Event Log returns an aggregate view of vCenter managed logging. You can determine which categories of event messages to collect when you enable Virtual Monitoring event listeners for each vCenter server device.

Each log message record contains the following data columns:

Fetch and filter log data

Choose device. Choose one or more host devices.

Choose time constraints. BusinessHours Choose specific windows for log data, or choose Last Polled DateRange for the latest.

Filter and reduce by row and by column. Select rows based on specific column values, remove columns, and remove noise and chaff from the table.

Note: VMware Event Log only returns log messages for hosts that have the appropriate Virtual Monitoring listeners and event collection enabled. For more details, see Enable Virtual Monitoring Event Listeners.

Tip: Date-time stamp for VMware Event Log log messages are relative to time settings configured for the vCenter/hypervisor.
