Monitoring vC Ops Upgrades

I was working with a customer this morning updating their vC Ops vApp from 5.0.0 to 5.0.2 and while everything went well it was a little frustrating because there is no feedback on the status of the update other than a "progress" animation.

To provide more detail on the status of the update, we opened a putty session on the UI and found that the /var/log/vmware/updatecoordinator.log was being updated as the upgrade progressed.

By running tail -f updatecoordinator.log we were able to get a better understanding on the progress and status of the upgrade as in the image below.

certainly a lot more interesting to watch than a progress bar!
