The v.102 release will be rolled out through the end of March and second week of April. Several much-anticipated changes are introduced with this release, including Collector Properties and an improved Table Widget.
In v.99, we introduced a major improvement to the Table Widget in which you could establish a dynamic Top 10/25/all table of instances for designated datapoints with glob. In this release, we expand upon this improvement by adding the following:
Why you care: displaying the bottom X instances for a datapoint is useful for tracking resource-deficient or over-provisioned parts of your infrastructure, e.g. displaying the 10 least used CPU or IOPS across servers. Additionally, the ability to color-code datapoint values in your Table widget is useful for at-a-glance verification of your environment’s health. For example, if you want a clear indication when Server A’s CPUBusyPercent is over 90%, you would set the column to be highlighted red when its value crosses this threshold.
You can now define properties on Collectors or Collector Groups for use in Collector-related alerts. Once a Collector property has been defined, it can be tokenized to customize Collector-related alert messages and/or integration delivery. These tokens are substituted with the property value at the time of generation so that the alert or integration delivery can include dynamic information.
Why you care: in addition to providing more context for Collector-related alerts, this feature is particularly useful for routing Collector down alerts to the proper team or customer via integrations.
SAML Security Enhancement – SHA-256
To ensure alignment with current best practice, we are updating our SAML Service Provider framework to accept the SHA-2 family of hashing algorithms. Existing SAML Identity Providers configured to use SHA-1 hashing will not be impacted.
Note: This change will be deployed to all customers during LogicMonitor’s regularly scheduled maintenance window on April 12th, 2018.
