I have configured my VCSA and as a syslog server and my hosts are configured to send their logs to it as described below:
In the windows version of the syslog server I could see individual log files by browsing to a directory. How do I view the logs when they're send to a VCSA?
Thanks for the link. I think I have a better understanding of how this works now. I have deployed the vRealize log insight virtual appliance and redirected all the log collection to that.
What I'm really not clear on is whether or not the vCenter 6 appliance is meant to be a syslog and crash dump collector. I'm not sure I get it.
I get the impression it is not intended to be the final log collector location, but an intermediary.
For example ESXi host -> VCSA 6.0 -> external syslog collector. The VCSA provides a handy central configuration point for syslog from hosts (or really any source device).
