    Hi Sean

    I understand that NSX components supports only Syslog.
    It does not support SNMP which is the basic for any networking related monitoring.
    Apart from syslog what are the best way to monitor the NSX components like Edge, Controller VM, NSX controller etc proactivtely.
    One way is by using Ping monitoring & what are the best way to monitor it.
    In case there is OSPF neigh change with NSX edge how effectively i can monitor it.
