VMware Syslog Grok Patterns


Hi all,
I want to collect VMware Syslogs into my ELK. Like expected, the VMware syslog format is not RFC conform and so I got an "_grokparsefailure_sysloginput", when using input syslog.
So I will change to input udp, but need grok patterns for vmware.

Are there already Grok Patterns for vmware (vSphere, ESXi) published anywhere ?

Can you post some sample lines?

Some VMware agents send rfc3164 conforming events and others send rfc5424 conforming events. You can can then build two grok patters in Logstash to capture either type. https://github.com/logstash-plugins/logstash-patterns-core/tree/master/patterns
