Stop observing, start automating: RedHat and LogicMonitor pioneer the next gen of Event-Driven Ansible

Ansible Key Terms: Getting Started

LogicMonitor has long been synonymous with observation — a platform that keenly watches over IT environments, alerting teams to potential issues. However, the age-old challenge remained: how to seamlessly transition from observation to action. Enter the LogicMonitor event-driven ansible integration with RedHat. What sets this solution apart is the fact our teams worked together to build it. This shift towards a supported industry-standard approach gives users the discretion to automate responses to detected issues. Here’s why it’s a game-changer:

A Marriage of Monitoring and Automation

Consider a scenario where a critical component, like a web server, goes down. The LogicMonitor platform promptly detects this issue and generates an alert. Here’s where the power of the integration comes into play – the Event-Driven Ansible event, triggered by the LogicMonitor alert, can automatically execute remediation steps, such as restarting the web server. This bidirectional relationship allows LogicMonitor to do what it does best: provide critical data concerning the health of the IT environment so decisive actions can be taken based on this data. From observation to activation, this more than a partnership, it’s a paradigm shift.

The Bridge to Automation

In providing users with a supported industry-standard approach to automating IT operations with ansible, organizations are able to bridge the gap between the desire for automated responses, and the traditional role of monitoring platforms. This bridge is the essence of the LogicMonitor EDA integration: a solution that answers the question: How can we act on the observations of our monitoring systems?

Minutes matter, and this integration delivers efficiency and responsiveness. It allows users to define rules, guiding what actions to take when specific events are detected. This customizable, flexible approach, puts the power back into the hands of IT teams.

A Trusted Collaboration: LogicMonitor and Red Hat

Backed by, and built with, RedHat, the LogicMonitor EDA plugin is a reliable solution that comes with more than just RedHat’s stamp of approval. It’s a combination of the values of both companies, housed within a singular solution that not only meets industry standards, but promises ongoing support and reliability. For organizations considering the transition from observation-centric monitoring to a proactive, automated approach, this partnership provides peace of mind that this integration is not just a technological experiment, but a strategic investment in industry best practices and standards.

The Path Forward: User Discretion and Future Support

The uniqueness of this integration lies in its respect for user discretion – recognizing not every organization may be ready to fully automate responses to every detected event. The customization options put power firmly in the hands of the user and their unique environments and business needs. The decision to embrace automation is entirely at their discretion, offering a much more curated approach to traditional EDA integrations currently available in the market. Moreover, the partnership with Red Hat signifies a commitment to future support. Organizations can feel comfortable knowing that this integration, backed by industry giants, will continue to evolve, adapt, and remain a reliable component of their IT operations toolkit.

Welcome to a Future of Automated Precision

Navigating evolving modern application environments is difficult, but with LogicMonitor’s Event-Driven Ansible integration it doesn’t have to be.  This addition to your hybrid infrastructure will propel your organization’s IT operations into a future where observation seamlessly transitions into action, and automation. For enterprises seeking a supported, industry-standard approach to bridge the gap between observation and action, LogicMonitor’s Event-Driven Ansible is helping change the definition of what an observability platform can – and should – aspire to be.
