The v.61 release will be rolled out through mid April and includes collector failback (the ability to fail devices back to their primary collector after a collector fail over), improvements to the Dashboard page, and an update to JDK 8 for Services checks.
LogicMonitor has always provided the ability for you to configure a backup collector, but there was not an elegant solution for moving devices back to their original collector after a failover. Until now.
On the surface, Collector failback is simple and only requires that you select the “Automatically failback when this collector becomes available again” option from Settings | Collectors | Manage Collector:
In practice, there are a few other things to be aware of:
The Custom Graph Widget is the most powerful Dashboard widget, and by nature the hardest to configure. To simplify the process, we are introducing two types of Custom Graph Widgets, Simple and Advanced.
The Simple Custom Graph Widget is ideal when you have a handful of datapoints or virtual datapoints that you want to include in a graph. Begin by creating a datapoint and selecting a device, datasource and datapoint:
Once at least one datapoint has been created, you can also add Virtual Datapoints which enable calculations to be performed on or between existing datapoints.
Once all of your Datapoints have been created, configure what is displayed in the graph by creating Graph Lines. During the Add Graph Line step, you select which datapoint to graph, how it will be graphed (Line, Area, Stack, or Column), the Legend, and the Color.
The Advanced Custom Graph widget provides the same basic functionality as the Simple version, but also includes the ability to use wildcards in datapoint definition. Because multiple instances can be evaluated in the same datapoint, there is an additional option to limit results.
If Aggregate is selected, you can choose to view the Sum of all datapoints, Min, Max, or Average.
There is an ongoing focus on improvements and bug fixes for the new UI as we work to move it out of Beta. Improvements in this release were focused on the Dashboard page and include:
