    ESXi logging...

    jessem Enthusiast

      so obviously we all know ESXi out of the box has no persistent logging.  I've read a ton of info on using vma, free kiwi, splunk to mention a few.  My goal is to have a centralized syslog server for all my ESXi 4.1. hosts and really capture events for about 2 weeks or so, maybe a month but really nothing beyond that.  The whole purpose is to get logs prior to a host rebooting to troubleshoot.

       

      In anyone's experience and using 'free' options, what's the best method (syslog server; which one?) to handle and execute this without too much manual work...

       

      thx
