My last couple of weeks have been spent preparing to teach the VMware Troubleshooting 5.5 and VMware Optimise and Scale 5.5 courses. Both of the courses cover ensuring that your system is fit for purpose and delivers a reliable, efficient and secure system for your end users.

My thoughts on this are as follows,


“Let’s be honest, how often do you check your log files?”

“When I have an issue with the system”


“How often do you baseline your system?”



One of the products I’ve been playing with is VMware Log Insight Manager.


So what does it do?
