LogicMonitor’s v.113 release is the 16th—and final—release of 2018. It caps off a year of innovative new features and important enhancements including user-specific time zones, a new REST API version, vastly expanded cloud monitoring, new user reports, and much, much more.
- Monitoring of GCP billing data. Monitoring for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) billing data has been added. This is useful for tracking GCP spend and correlating it with the performance and utilization of your GCP resources. More detail here.
- Monitoring of GCP App Engine service versions. A new DataSource that discovers versions of a GCP App Engine service as instances, and monitors performance metrics specific to each version, has been added. This is useful for comparing performance among different versions of the same service.
- Local Collector monitoring for GCP. The Enable monitoring via local Collector option is now available for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This allows you to use a LogicMonitor Collector within your GCP environment to get more comprehensive metrics (e.g. application metrics, OS level metrics) for your Compute Engine instances. These metrics will be displayed within LogicMonitor alongside monitored data from Stackdriver. For more information, visit Enabling Monitoring via Local Collector.
- Python and Go SDKs (beta). LogicMonitor is releasing beta software development kits (SDKs) for Python and Go that will allow you to more efficiently and conveniently build API-based integrations and workflow processes using v2 of our REST API. These SDKs, along with accompanying documentation, will be available once v.113 has been fully rolled out.
- Alert routing testing for cluster alerts. The ability to test alert routing for cluster alerts has been added (this capability was previously only available for individual datapoint alerts). Additionally, the alert routing testing icon has been updated to feature a bell ( ), replacing the cogwheel that was previously used. This helps differentiate the alert routing testing functionality from the manage functionality available throughout the interface.
- New sorting default for NOC widget. Newly created NOC widgets now default to a sort order that is determined by alert severity, rather than the previous alphabetical sort order determined by name. For larger NOC widgets that experience overflow, this ensures that resources that have been alerted on are always displayed first, giving you better visibility into potentially important alert conditions.
- Search functionality for recipient groups. A search box has been added to the Recipient Groups page (Settings | Alert Settings | Recipient Groups). This new search functionality returns all recipient groups that contain matching search text within their Name and Description fields.
Next we’ve listed new and improved LogicModules that were implemented since our last release.
