Posted: June 11, 2015 Modified: October 24, 2017


Overview

The Hewlett Packard LiveSite Insight Pack allows users of IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis, in conjunction with Logstash, to index and search HP LiveSite logs. This allows faster problem identification of LiveSite-related problems.

One data gathering mechanism is supported: Logstash.

The HP LiveSite Insight Pack supports logs from the following:

  • HP LiveSite 7.4
  • HP LiveSite 7.5
  • HP LiveSite 8.0

The HP LiveSite Insight Pack supports searching and indexing of the following:

  • LiveSite Base logs
  • LiveSite Security logs

Logstash uses the file input module to pull events from HP LiveSite logs. The records are then forwarded using the IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis Logstash Output Plugin.

Considerations

  1. Files with long log records require adjustments to the Java stack size so that they can be ingested.
  2. If you update the -Xss value parameter within the jvm.options file, you must restart the IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis system.
