Log partitions meet IT operational and non-operational use cases for:

  • Observability across systems to detect events and patterns in log data
  • Real-time monitoring and notification to detect anomalies and system health
  • Auditing and compliance data archival for business data retention requirements
  • Ad-hoc troubleshooting and analytics for event resolution and research
  • Reduce cost with competitive and flexible consumption options

Root Cause Analysis powered by AIOps

Another vRealize Log Insight Cloud exclusive BETA, log root cause analysis building blocks helps find and investigate the potential root cause from the million log messages by reducing the data and noise to show only the significant logs as potential root causes. By surfacing information in the form of log clusters, the algorithm detects anomalous logs by assessing their frequency, average, variance and groups them into patterns based on their significance.

Find potential root cause from millions of log messages to detect and surface relevant logs in the form of log clusters and reduce the number of logs with sophisticated algorithms to show only significant logs as potential root cause.
