    I have enabled syslog forwarding on vCenter and while it works it is very verbose. Looking at what is provided by default I  get the below, when really all I want is what was provided by the API which is possible the vpdx events. Is there any way to reduce what is being sent other than playing with the verbosity?

    • /var/log/messages
    • /storage/log/vmware/applmgmt-audit/applmgmt-audit-syslog.log
