New VMware Skyline Collector 3.4 and Advisor Pro Release

VMware Aria Operations for Log Endpoint Discovery and Product Name Updates

We’re pleased to announce new VMware Skyline Collector 3.4 and Advisor Pro releases with VMware Aria Operations for Logs (formerly vRealize Log Insight) endpoint discovery, product name updates and new proactive Findings. If you have Auto Upgrade enabled, your Skyline Collector will automatically update.     

A summary of the new features is below. For additional details review the Skyline Advisor Release Notes. Log into Skyline Advisor Pro today to see the new enhancements!   

New Feature Highlights:     

Aria Operations for Logs Endpoint Discovery 

Skyline recently added support for Aria Operations for Logs, and now Skyline will automatically detect your Aria Ops for Logs endpoints and prompt you to connect them to your Skyline Collector. This enables you to easily add your endpoints and benefit from Skyline proactive Findings and Recommendations to avoid issues.

Product Name Updates

VMware rebranded all vRealize products to “Aria” in late 2022. This Skyline release reflects the new Aria product names to align with the updated branding. You will notice the vRealize names have changed to Aria throughout the Skyline UI.

New Proactive Findings   

Several new proactive Findings have been released, including security vulnerabilities, trending support issues and more. Read more about the new Findings in the blog post

If you have questions about any of these announcements, please visit the Skyline Community.      

Skyline Collector Tip:

We strongly recommend running the latest Skyline Collector version v3.4 to take advantage of all Skyline features. All of your Collectors must be on v3.0 or above to access Skyline Advisor Pro, which is smarter, easier and 12X faster than Skyline Advisor. Note that customers running Collector v2.1 and below who have not upgraded will no longer see data provided by those Collectors in Skyline Advisor.  As a reminder, VMware supports n-2 versions of the Skyline Collector. Currently versions 2.4 and below are no longer actively supported under General Support. Learn more about upgrading Skyline Collector. 

Best Regards,

The Skyline Team
