It's been a while since my last post! I've been spending some time in my homelab with the latest vRealize Suite products. One of those fantastic tools is vRealize Log Insight. I won't get into the details of the product, but one of the use cases I wanted to tackle for my homelab was ingesting any and all syslog messages I could find. A key piece of my homelab is a PFSense VM that I use for routing and firewall separation between my home network and the components nested snuggly in my HP Z800 Workstation.
