We have installed
CENTOS 7 Minimal, rsyslog, loganalyzer. rsyslog is configured with mariadb.

We have 6 vmware ESXi hosts. Everything looks good. Only thing I want to do is loganalyzer should display VMWARE IP address along with VMWARE HOST name.

How can I do it?

What is in your sql-output template? Is there anything like IP where you must just swap for fromhost_ip?
