Step 2. Enable Syslog Rules (if required)

In this article

    By default, all syslog hardware message events are enabled. If you do not need to track any syslog messages, you can disable the rules:

    1. In the OpsMgr console, go to the Authoring pane and select Management Pack Objects > Rules.
    2. Override the required rules from those listed below:

    Rule Name

    Syslog Severity

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Alert Message

    Error

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Critical Message

    Error

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Debug Message

    Information

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Emergency Message

    Error

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Error Message

    Error

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Information Message

    Information

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Notice Message

    Warning

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Syslog daemon service shutdown

    Warning

    Veeam vSphere Host Syslog: Warning Message

    Warning

    It is recommended that before enabling the above rules you complete Step 3. This will allow you to review the number of syslog events in the Veeam VMware log before the Veeam MP for VMware solution is configured to gather them. You can then review filtering settings and enable the required rules without the risk of overwhelming the Collector, OpsMgr Agent or filling OpsMgr database.
