  1. I am attempting to use Infoblox 7.3.3 NIOS systems with the Log Insight Version 3.0.0-3021606. I can confirm that syslog data is being received by the VMware Log Insight system, but the filters on the logging interfaces (graphs, etc.) appear to look for http in the appname. The syslog messages appear to be sending named as the appname. Is it possible I need to change syslog settings? or has there been a change in how the syslog messages are reported?
    Any help would be much appreciated

  2. My contact an Infoblox has confirmed that the content pack should work for Infoblox 7.3.3 NIOS systems.
