      3. setup vmware.eventlog[\{$URL\},skip]

      Before restart hostid=10271, not working:

      hostid itemid lastlogsize name     
        10271   68735        73165 Event log
        11046   74354        31535 Event log

      After restart hostid=11046 - not working, but 10271 does:

      hostid itemid lastlogsize name     
        10271   68735        80254 Event log
        11046   74354        33877 Event log
