ESX и VC - список логов.

Бесспорно, полезная информация - логи, где что. Итак:

  • Vmkernel Warnings - /var/log/vmkwarning – records activities with the virtual machines.
  • Vmkernel Summary - /var/log/vmksummary - Used to determine uptime and availability statistics for ESX Server; human-readable summary found in /var/log/vmksummary.txt
  • ESX Server host agent log - /var/log/vmware/hostd.log - Contains information on the agent that manages and configures the ESX Server host and its virtual machines (Search the file date/time stamps to find the log file it is currently outputting to).
  • Service Console - /var/log/messages - Contain all general log messages used to troubleshoot virtual machines on ESX Server.
  • Web Access - /var/log/vmware/webAccess - Records information on Web-based access to ESX Server.
