VMware vRealize Log Insight v-4.5

Veeam Logoby LazyLoneLion » Mon Aug 14, 2017 2:15 pm

I have installed Veeam Backup&Replication v9.5.0.1038.
Installed VMware vRealize Log Insight Server v4.5.0-5654101, installed Content Pack v1.0 by Veeam as well

All three -- most recent versions ATM.
Installed latest LogInsight Agent on Veeam B&R Server.

Got new Dashboards in the Log Insight about Veeam B&R (like "successful backup jobs", "failed backup jobs", "restore jobs", etc.), but no events in there.
Zero, nada, nil, zilch. (c)

I had fixed Log Insight Agent settings (in the Log Insight Administration page), to gather and forward Veeam events, which at the moment are in the Windows Event Logs, and got what I wanted.
Events coming to LgoInsight Server, Dashboards filling with events, etc..

Sharing my mini-content-pack here (addition to Veeam Content Pack, not a replacement).

VeeamAgent-1.1.vlcp:
Code: Select all
{
  "name":"Veeam Backup",
  "namespace":"com.veeam.backupreplication",
  "contentPackId":"com.veeam.backupreplication",
  "framework":"#9c4",
  "version":"2.4",
  "extractedFields":[ ],
  "queries":[ ],
  "alerts":[ ],
  "dashboardSections":[ ],
  "agentClasses":[ {
    "name":"Veeam - Backup",
    "info":"",
    "agentConfig":"[filelog|Services]\ndirectory=C:\\Users\\All
Users\\Veeam\\Backup\ninclude=Job.*.LOG;Task.*.LOG;Agent.*.LOG;Svc.*.LOG\nexclude=*.1.LOG\ntags={\"veeam\":\"servicelogs\"}\nparser=auto\n\n[winlog|Veeam_Backup]\nchannel=Veeam
Backup\ntags={\"veeam\":\"eventlog\"}\n"
  } ],
  "aliasFields":[ ],
  "aliasRules":[ ],
  "author":"Oleksandr Karimov",
  "url":"",
  "contentVersion":"1.1",
  "info":"Log Insight Agent settings for Veeam Backup Logs"
}


Or just Agent settings -- in the Loginsight administration page assign it to the Veeam Agent, installed on the Veeam Backup & Replication Server:
Code: Select all
[winlog|Veeam_Backup]
channel=Veeam Backup
tags={"veeam":"eventlog"}


All very simple and easy.

Hello Oleksandr and welcome to the community!
Installed latest LogInsight Agent on Veeam B&R Server.
Got new Dashboards in the Log Insight about Veeam B&R (like "successful backup jobs", "failed backup jobs", "restore jobs", etc.), but no events in there.

Have you configured an agent?
Thanks!

Haven't seen that link before %)
Did just the same, anyway.

Should be either in the Content Pack by default (preferrably), or in some "Installation instructions" / ReadMe-file

Thank you anyway.

I assume you should include those Agent settings in your Content Pack. Much better than any instructions.
