  • Previously there was a VMware solution for Log Analytics but Microsoft has deprecated it. They have published the instructions for setting it up: https://github.com/microsoft/OMS-Agent-for-Linux/blob/master/docs/VMware-Instruction.md

    The instructions should be still possible. Basically you configure a Linux VM with Log Analytics agent installed to capture syslogs. From Vmware you setup the syslog events to be send to that Linux VM. The LinuxVM recieves these events process them and inserts them as data in table VMware_CL. The queries and the views are now old as there is a new query language that is used compared to the published one but the process of getting that data to Log Analytics should be still the same and possible. You can use workbooks to build your own views and dashboards based on the data you will have in Log Analytics.

  • Are you referring to the virtual machines hosted in the Citrix\VMware environment ?

    If yes, then simply download the agents from Log Analytics workspace and install it by adding the primary key and workspace ID. It just need internet for sending the telemetry data to log analytics workspace.
