To enable Red Hat Insights monitoring of RHEV we require the redhat-access-insights RPM to be installed on the RHEV-H.
The redhat-access-insights RPM delivers some python code (the Insights client) which collects various logs and other information that we analyze at Red Hat an use to alert customers to potential problems. On average, this information is about 100kb (much much smaller than a SoS report).
Operationally, the Insights client will exist on the RHEV-H and be dormant unless invoked by an external process. It will *not* spawn any persistent tasks or processes. An external program will invoke the program (redhat-insights-coordinator-rhev) over SSH, the output will be sent to STDOUT, any artifacts will be cleaned up, and the connection will be closed.
The GIT repo for the Insights client is at . It is available today in BaseOS; however, that version is old. Our latest builds are at  and we would want to ship the _latest_ version in any spin of the RHEV-H.
Is there also a corresponding upstream package for Fedora or CentOS?
There is no Fedora component because Red Hat Insights is a subscription service offered to Red Hat customers. It does not make sense in the Fedora context.
Today, we do not support centos but I suppose that could change depending on a BU decision.
Fabian we should add it to next gen and Keith's team will be trying to use edit-node to test this on vintage node as well. There is a change this will need to go to z stream as well.
Thanks Keith, we'll add it to the upcoming RHEV-H Next.
There should also be no issue in including it into vintage RHEV-H - but please note that in this case the user needs to enable ssh in the RHEV-H TUI before this can be used.
When will you be building the next RHEV-H? I want to make sure you have the latest version. We'll need to build something in brew so that you can tag it into RHEV-H (I assume).
Today, our latest is .
This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see email@example.com with any questions
oVirt 4.0 Alpha has been released, moving to oVirt 4.0 Beta target.
1. Install RHEV-H ng RHEVH-7.2-20160520.t.0-RHEVH-x86_64-dvd1.iso via CDROM
2. Reboot and login RHEV-H, check redhat-access-insights RPM:
# rpm -qa | grep redhat-access-insights
3. Check RPM configure file
After step2, it shows:
After step3, There is RPM configure file: /etc/redhat-access-insights/redhat-access-insights.conf
So this bug is fixed on RHEV-H ng RHEVH-7.2-20160520.t.0-RHEVH-x86_64-dvd1.iso, change the status to VERIFIED.
Can we somehow verify that the rpms are working correctly, Keith?
Moving back to ON_QA until we have functional verification.
I'm just looking for the functional verification, because this is the first introduction of these tools.

Fabian, see comment 22, and comment 23, do we need to resolve the detected issue in RHVH? I will share the account by email to login the insights system.
The issue will be resolved by dropping docker from the RHVH package set, see bug 1349375, there is nothing to be done for now on the RHVH side.
According to comment 21 and comment 25, this bug is fixed on RHEV-H-7.2-20160622.1-RHVH-x86_64-dvd1.iso, and there is nothing to be done for now on the RHVH side.
The detected issue in RHVH will be tracked by bug 1349375.
So I will change the status to VERIFIED.
