First post, so please bear with me. I'm interested to know if anyone's used the Veeam MP to verify that ESXi host logs are being written. We had an outage on a host recently, and were unable to do any root cause analysis, as the vmkernel log hadn't been written for several months. I'd like to have a simple monitor in place to make sure that, at a base level, the vmkernel log is being written to, and is relatively fresh (i.e. if there hasn't been a single log write in the previous 24 hours, we'd like to know about it).
Anyone know if this is something that the MP can do for me? I'm not concerned (at the moment) about the content of the vmkernel logs, just that they are at least being written.
