You can restart Log Insight by using the Administration page in the Web user interface.


Restarting Log Insight closes all active user sessions. Users of the Log Insight instance will be forced to log in again.

Verify that you are logged in to the Log Insight Web user interface as an Admin user. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the Log Insight virtual appliance.


Click the configuration drop-down menu icon and select Administration.


Under Management, click Appliance.


Click Restart Log Insight and click Restart.

After Log Insight restarts, verify that syslog feeds from ESXi continue to arrive in Log Insight. For troubleshooting, see ESXi Logs Stop Arriving in Log Insight.
