vCenter Support Logs and ESXi log analysis

Quick query just looking to improve my log analysis of both vCenter Support Logs and ESXi logs

The companies whose VMware products I support all have VMware support

After troubleshooting and going through steps, what is the best way of analyzing logs

I am using Notepad ++ I can not find any guides online for this even to see in a rudimentary fashion

Some of the companies I support are using LogInsight but I would really like to get indicators as quickly as possible from log analysis

Would really appreciate best steps to do this

Thanks for comments, theres no sites, I have bought a few VMware books, very few of them mention it.I have a good idea just I have been doing it myself and thought there must be a guide , a pdf or a helpful video out there somewhere for this

If there is anything like this can you let me know :)
VMware used to have Troubleshooting Course, I'm not sure if they still do.
