Sumo Logic

Install the VMware App

After configuring the collection of VMware logs, you can install the Sumo Logic App for VMware to begin using the Dashboards and searches in the app.

To install the app:

  1. In the Library, click the Apps tab. 
  2. Click VMware.
  3. Click Install.

  4. In the Install Application dialog box, select esx_perf from the _sourceCategory menu. If you don't see this option, please make sure you've configured VMware log collection properly. Important: If you do not select the correct _sourceCategory, data will not be loaded into the app. If you don't know which _sourceCategory to select, ask the administrator who configured the Source.
  5. For Custom data filter, type (_sourceCategory=esx_perf OR _sourceCategory=vcenter_log).
  6. Click Install.
  7. When the Confirm dialog displays, click Go to navigate to the installed app.

After the Install

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder. From here, you can publish it to share it with your organization.

Panels will start and fill automatically. It's important to note that each Panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the Panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps.
