We are using it because we have a VMware product. It has its own built in dashboards for VMware products, and that's a good thing.

vRealize Log Insight Cons

I think that it should be able to integrate with other third-party backup and recovery solutions, more that it does now.

It needs better integration with third-party analytics tools.
Log retention should have more options for user control.

The solution is a very good tool, but it has a lot of limitations. One of the main issues is around how you define your retention policy, for instance, in Log Insight. It doesn't have it. You can't define a log retention policy. You also can't define the destination or location for your logs. All of the logs are in one index or one bucket.

Documentation is lacking, including some guide as to how to use the expressions. It is not clear how to look for a log, for example. Some examples in the documentation might be helpful. I think that VMware had good documentation, but it's no longer hosted. The documentation is not as easy to understand as it was before.

It's great for VMware, but it would be good if they had third-party logins.
