vCenter Log Browser
The vCenter Log Browser is a quick and easy way to look at vCenter server logs.
You can browse the following log data:
- Main vCenter diagnostic logs (vpxd).
- Storage management service logs (sms logs).
- vCenter web services logs (vws/tomcat/stat/cim-diag).
For this dashboard to work correctly, you must have vclog data set up to forward to the Splunk App for VMware. See Collect optional log data section of the Splunk Add-on for VMWare manual for detailed instructions.

|Level||A logging level. This can be DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, or FATAL. The default is ERROR.|
