New VMware Skyline Collector 3.5 and Advisor Pro Releases with Diagnostic Findings

The Skyline team is pleased to announce new VMware Skyline Collector 3.5 and Advisor Pro releases with VMware Aria Operations for Logs Diagnostic Findings and new proactive Findings. If you have Auto-Upgrade enabled, your Skyline Collector will automatically update.

New Feature Highlights:     

Aria Operations for Logs Diagnostic Findings 

Skyline recently added Aria Operations for Logs product support, expanding the list of VMware products Skyline analyzes to keep productive and healthy in your environment. Once you add your Aria Logs endpoints to your Skyline Collector(s), you can view proactive Findings and Recommendations in Skyline Advisor Pro.

With this latest release, you can now view Diagnostic Findings in Advisor Pro, based on Aria Operations for Logs queries. Diagnostic Findings alert you to and pinpoint existing issues in your environment based on log data evidence. The Diagnostic Findings complement Proactive Findings, which alert you to potential issues in your environment that have not yet occurred. After you add your Aria Logs endpoints to Skyline, you will notice that the default setting for Diagnostic Findings is disabled. You can enable and/or disable the feature whenever you like.

We recommend adding all of your Aria Logs endpoints to keep them safe and productive, and enabling Diagnostic Findings to take advantage of log data analysis. Skyline will prompt you to connect endpoints that are not already connected.

Skyline Collectors Below v3.0 EOL: As previously announced, we have begun the End of Life (EOL) process for Skyline Collectors below v3.0. We strongly recommend you upgrade any Collectors below 3.0 to the latest Collector version v3.5, before the October 5, 2023 EOL date, to avoid losing access to Skyline. All of your Collectors must be on v3.0 or above to access Skyline Advisor Pro, which is smarter, easier and 12X faster than Skyline Advisor. Note that customers running Collector v2.1 and below who have not upgraded will no longer see data provided by those Collectors in Skyline Advisor.  As a reminder, VMware supports n-2 versions of the Skyline Collector. Currently versions 3.3 and below are no longer actively supported under General Support. Learn more about upgrading Skyline Collector.
