the common logging service is referenced as vmware syslog service
to view status from vsphere6.0 cli run
service-control --status vmware-syslog
or from the vsphere6.0 webui log in as firstname.lastname@example.org & navigate to administration->deployment->system configuration->services
It appears I may have a problem with log rotation. The /storage/log directory has been kept in check for a while but now it seems each day to be at 95% disk usage.
9.9G 8.9G 544M 95% /storage/log
Is it OK to manually delete the contents of the large subdirectories such as: /storage/log/vmware/SSO, vdcs, vsphere-client?
Thanks for your assistance!
Thanks all for resources but for me problem still exist.
I create separate thread for this vROPS 6.1.0 - alerts - object is not available for vCenter License Performance Charts Common Logging vAPI Endpoint service
But there i have problems with much more services...
Looks like this service "Common Logging Service" from time to time is not working.
I think this can be related with service: vmware-syslog-health
because when i edit this object Common Logging Service in vRops:
And bellow information about some repeated outage for service:
Some advice ?
Im looking for some log where can i see some problems with this service....
I have the same problem as yours, there are intermittent alarm "object is not available" that were active only less than a minute. This happened few times every hour.
Object name: VMware Server Health Service
I stop received alerts. But often after some times this problem back because somehow vROps created anopther monitoring agent and in vROPS.
Today we dont have this problem... if i giood remember we impelemnt some update.
I will ask my colleague in next week if you need.
