Come join our live training webinar every other Wednesday at 11am PST and hear LogicMonitor experts explain best practices and answer common questions. We understand these are uncertain times, and we are here to help!
Feel like you just finished reading the last set of Release Notes? With the Collector Update Scheduler we are able to bring you more frequent and less disruptive releases. You’ll find that the Device Page Enhancements make navigation more user friendly, while also introducing the concept of a Device Dashboard. We’ve also added the ability to turn off alert status notifications (acknowledgement and SDT), further ensuring you only hear from LogicMonitor when you want to.
The last release included the ability to manually update collectors. With this release, you can also set a schedule for future updates to automate receipt of the most recent collector features at a specified time.
To update your collectors, go to Settings | Collectors. Select the collectors you wish to update.
Click Update Collectors to select either a One-time Update or Automatic Update.
One-time update gives you the ability to select a collector update version and a desired start time for the update process. Automatic Update enables you to set a time to automatically install selected future updates as they become available.
Select which updates you would like to have automatically applied.
Note: With the decoupling of collector updates, separate release notes will be provided for each collector version.
Select when you would like updates to be applied, often based on your maintenance windows.
The description that will be associated with the scheduled update.
View all scheduled updates, including time, collectors included, and type of updates.
Expanding a update row will also display the description and the ability to remove the update schedule.
Tip: Selecting all collectors to be included in the update schedule provides the option to include future collectors. If future collectors are included, collectors will display as All, otherwise specific collector numbers will be listed.
We continue to incorporate feedback into the Beta UI, with a primary focus on the Device page in this release. Some of the highlights include:
Once you have navigated to a specific device, the associated datasources will expand in place so you can easily navigate between instances.
The favorites panel has been update to Compare, to more accurately describe it’s function.
Selecting an item in the Compare panel will not update the Device pane, enabling you to easily click between instances in the Compare section and those you have navigated to via the Device search. Tip: The Compare panel will auto-collapse if the instances on the active device fill the pane. Click the up arrow to view items in the Compare panel.
A breadcrumb has been added to the detail screen, providing at a glance context for the data you are viewing.
On the Device detail view screen, the Data Tab is now the Graphs Tab. Along with the Device dashboard that was introduced in the last release, you can now add Device dashboard templates that can be applied to multiple devices. Determine which graphs are meaningful across device types, configure the dashboard view once, and easily view consistent metrics across your infrastructure.
Creating a new Device dashboard allows you to utilize the same Applies To logic that exists in LogicMonitor DataSources to specify what devices the dashboard should be available to.
Select the Datasource(s), Instance(s) and Graph(s) you would like to include in the Dashboard. When the dashboard is displayed, each Datasource will be grouped together to account for the variable number of graphs across Devices.
Last year we introduced the ability to turn alert clear notifications off per alert rule. We’ve expanded that configuration to allow you to turn off status notifications for scheduled down time and acknowledgements. To edit your notification settings, go to Settings | Alert Rules and select manage for a specific alert rule. The following checkboxes will display in the Edit Rule screen:
Send notifications is enabled by default.
Note: The beta UI refers to Send while the current UI refers to suppress notifications. While the beta UI wording is more clear, it can cause a little confusion while when running the two views concurrently.
