Parsers for VMWare ESX ?

Hi !

I just added some VMWare ESX 6.5 data sources on my ESM 10.3.2. But as far as I see there are some issues with logs parsing. Most of events are "unknown event".

What can I do ?

Re: Parsers for VMWare ESX ?

Check that VMWare isn't in debug mode for logging.  We've had several instances where for some reason it was in debug mode and sending a huge number of logs that aren't relevant from a security context.

Re: Parsers for VMWare ESX ?

Several ESX nodes were in debug/verbose mode, thanks for that. But I still get a huge amount of logs that are not parsed.

I though McAfee would have a default VMWare ESX 6.5 parser so I don't have to write it.

Some SIEM have a full integration of VMWare products with dedicated dashboards and so on...

I'm not quite sure what you're asking for.

Looks like the events that are not parsed are coming from VSAN and NSX.

That should be quite easy to write
