This topic describes the VMware event source parameters.
You use the VMware option on the Log Collector Config View Event Sources tab to add and maintain configuration parameters for VMware event sources. These event sources generate events from a VMware virtual infrastructure. The infrastructure typically consists of multiple VMware vCenter Servers that connect to several ESX, ESXi, and embedded ESXi servers. Each of the vCenter servers collects and manages tasks and events. Events can be any message generated by a VMware event source (for example, an alarm). Tasks are jobs that you schedule to perform.
To access the VMware Event Source Configuration Parameters:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services
- In the Services grid, select a Log Collector service.
- Click under Actions and select View > Config.
The Service Config view is displayed with the General tab open.
- Click the Event Sources tab.
- Select VMware from the drop-down menu.
The VMware view in the Event Sources tab has two panels: Event Categories and Sources.
