Hi people,

I'd like to ask some clarification for Free Log Insight for vCenter before implementing it in my Vmware environment.

My environment:
2x Vcenter Server Standard 5.1 Update 1 - Windows Server 2008 R2
1x Vcenter Server Essential 5.1 Update 1 - Windows Server 2012 R2

16x ESXi 5.1U3b hosts running on HP Blade Bl 465c G7/8
200 VMs
15 other Physical machine

I read that the Log Insight for vCenter is now available for free only to the first 25 server.


1. Can I download and use it with my VCenter 5.1 ?
2. Assuming there is additional Agent to be installed on the VM or physical machine to effectively monitor, does it require a reboot ?
3. Can I install it on my physical host running on Windows Server 2008 - 2012 R2 ?
4. Does 25 OSI pack means 25 IP address maximum to be monitored ?

Thanks in advance.
