Along with our ongoing UI and general improvements, the March release brings a much awaited mobile browser view and a beta AWS integration. We’re also excited to introduce a new framework for collector upgrades, to ensure you get the latest and greatest when you want it.
Get an at a glance view of what is going on with your infrastructure and perform basic triage tasks from your phone with the mobile browser view.
Access Mobile View
To access the mobile view, go to https://youraccount.logicmonitor.com/santaba/mobile. If you are using single sign on, you will want to sign in directly to your account first and then access the mobile link.
Alerts will be displayed based on most recent first. You are able to quickly scan device, datasource, instance, value and duration. Use the search function to look for a particular alert or filter the alert list based on device, instance, or other important criteria.
Swipe to easily acknowledge, schedule down time, or escalate an alert or click on the alert for more detail. If there is a graph associated with the datapoint that is in alert, you can click to it from the Alert Detail view.
It still needs polish, but we wanted to get it into your hands quickly. We’ll be adding more functionality around Dashboards and Device views as well as native apps. Comment below to let us know what else you’d like to see.
LogicMonitor’s beta AWS Monitoring functionality allows you to monitor your Amazon cloud infrastructure and services alongside your existing monitored infrastructure.
We use two mechanisms for AWS Monitoring on a specified AWS account:
These CloudWatch and SDK metrics integrate with existing LogicMonitor reporting, alerting, and notification functionalities.
For more information about the integration, check out the AWS Monitoring documentation. Before you begin, you will need to contact LogicMonitor Support to enable beta AWS Monitoring for your LogicMonitor account.
Collector updates have inherently been a part of the release process. This has proven to be less than ideal as it can result in a few minutes of downtime and doesn’t always fall within your maintenance window. To address this, along with the fact that not everyone benefits from every collector improvement, we’re implementing a new update framework.
With the v.59 release you will see a button in Settings | Collector Management for Update Collectors. (Note: this new functionality is only present in the new UI.)Select the collectors you wish to update and click Update Collectors. The first Early Release collector will be available for manual updates at the end of March.
As optional General Deployment collectors are added the ability to schedule updates for a future date will become visible. Detailed instructions will be provided with the notification of the General Deployment collector release.
Versioning & Compatibility
The collector version will be clearly listed in the collector management page. All collectors will be version 19.0 after the v.59 release. All general deployment collectors will increment by 1, early release collectors will increment as .01.
Multiple collector versions can run within your environment, but it is recommended that your backup collector is the same version as your primary collector.
The Beta view of the User Interface continues to undergo many improvements. Thank you to everyone who has sent in feedback and thank you to all for your patience as we add the necessary polish to ensure this is the easy to use, feature rich experience you’ve been waiting for.
We’re working on some significant improvements to the device page, as well as adding in some new features for the next release. In the meantime, you’ll find a number of updates including:
