vmware vRealize Operations Manager syslog parsing

Hello,

Could anyone please confirm if there is any default ASP rule for parsing vmware vRealize Operations Manager syslog?

I am receiving these logs as 'unknown events'!

The screenshot below shows some logs I am receiving to McAfee Receiver.

Thank you.
Regards,
SP

Hi i think there is no standard parser for this product of vmware. But you can write your own parser or you can active all other parser for vmware for this Datasource. Maybe one of them will parse your log.

Thank you.

Enabled all VMware parsers but no avail.

I will try creating custom parser.
