vCenter Log Insight
vCenter™ Log Insight™ is available for purchase in two different ways. It is available per "operating system image" (OSI) with one flat rate for collecting logs from any server, virtual machine or hypervisor. It is also available “per CPU,” for one flat fee for collecting logs from a single CPU socket.
Per Operating System
vCenter Log Insight is licensed on a per operating system instance (OSI) basis, which is defined as any server, virtual or physical, with an IP address that generates logs, including network devices and storage arrays.
You can analyze an unlimited amount of log data per OSI. The advantage of this is a simple and predictable pricing model that is based on the size of the infrastructure; it does not force you to buy additional licenses to cover the worst-case scenario and pay more for increased log volumes. This is an important distinction because systems and devices can generate huge amounts of log data during peak times, or while monitoring and troubleshooting for various IT issues.
vCenter Log Insight is also available on a “per CPU basis,” where there is one flat fee for all log data sources from a single CPU. For more information about pricing, contact Sales.
In addition to standalone vCenter Log Insight, we have now made available VMware vRealize Operations Insight, as an add-on offering to VMware vSphere with Operations Management. This new offering includes vCenter Log Insight and is available on a “per CPU basis”. Learn more here.
