Collection profileDescription
vSphere:Collection Profile for vSphere Logs

Contains a data collector template that can be used for collecting data from the VMware vSphere logs stored on the vCenter.

Before using the collection profile, BMC recommends that you edit the collection profile to update the following details depending on the location where your logs are stored.

  • Shared location (directory path) where the logs are stored.
  • Credentials for accessing the shared location (user name, password, and domain).

For more information about collection profiles, see the topic on "Managing collection profiles" in the TrueSight IT Data Analytics  online documentation portal.
