Setting the Remote Log on the vSphere Client

Setting the Remote Log on the vSphere Client

This section describes how to configure a remote log on the vSphere Client.


  1. Log in to the VMvare vSphere Client.
  2. In the right navigation tree, select the host you want to configure.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the Software area, click Advanced Settings.
    The Advanced Settings page is displayed.
  5. On the Advanced Settings page, choose Syslog > global.
  6. In the right pane, set the remote log. Table 5-1 describes related parameters.

    Table 5-1  General parameters




    Sets the maximum number of archives to keep.

    You can set this number globally and for individual subloggers.

    [Default value]


    Sets the default size of the log, in KB, before the system rotates logs.

    You can set this number globally and for individual subloggers.

    [Default value]


    Directory where logs are saved.

    The directory can be located on mounted NFS or VMFS volumes. Only the /scratch directory on the local file system is persistent across reboots. The directory should be specified as [datastorename] path_to_file where the path is relative to the root of the volume backing the datastore. For example, the path [storage1] var/log/messages maps to the path /vmfs/volumes/storage1/var/log/messages. If no path is specified, all log files are sent to /var/log.

    [Default value]


    Remote host to which syslog messages are forwarded and port on which the remote host receives syslog messages.

    You can include the protocol and port, for example, ssl://hostName1:514. UDP (default), TCP, and SSL are supported. The remote host must have syslog installed and correctly configured to receive the forwarded syslog messages. See the documentation for the syslog service installed on the remote host for information on configuration.

    [Default value]


  7. Click OK.

    If the remote log configuration requires enabling ports 514 and 1514 of the firewall outbound connection, run the following command on the esxcli:
    #esxcli network firewall ruleset set --ruleset-id=syslog --enabled=true
    #esxcli network firewall refresh
