Quick Post – #VSAN and Log Insight Custom Alerting Example
Log Insight is one of those great VMware products that needs to get more airplay as it has quiet a few applications other than a run of the mill log parser…in this post I’ll go through configuring a basic VSAN alert to detect disk failures. Once VSAN has been configured and deployed there is a new set of alerting parameters that VMware Admins need to be aware of that would usually be part of a traditional storage platforms feature set. Like all storage we need to be made aware of any issues with the supporting hardware such as Storage Controllers and Physical Disks. VSAN 6.2 comes with an excellent Health Monitor that allows you to get a quick overview of a VSAN instances state and will alert through vCenter if any issues arise.
