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!
Note: LM Exchange will be activated for all customer portals on June 4.
LogicMonitor offers an ever-expanding library of LogicModules to bring you out-of-the-box monitoring for the networking devices, applications, databases, services, and other systems and tools your enterprise relies on. With the introduction of the new Exchange page, we’re making it significantly easier for you to maintain this library.
The Exchange page provides a centralized view of LogicModules. This view includes not only those LogicModules that live locally in your portal, but all LogicModules available in LogicMonitor’s global repository. It’s the new home for LogicModule management—and it’s right inside your portal!
Note: SLM is being released as an early access (EA) feature. EA features debut new functionality and are largely stable, but are not yet recommended for use in critical operations.
To learn more, see LM Exchange.
Upon your account’s upgrade to v.136, import our new and updated LogicModules from the LogicMonitor repository to expand and enhance your monitoring coverage.
Added discovery and monitoring for AWS API Gateway stages, which are a named reference to a specific deployment stage. Metrics monitored per stage (as reported by CloudWatch) include 4XXError, 5XXError, CacheHitCount, CacheMissCount, Count, IntegrationLatency, and Latency.
Discovers and monitors AWS Elasticsearch service, which is a fully managed service to deploy, secure, run, and scale Elasticsearch. Metrics monitored include AutomatedSnapshotFailure, CPUCreditBalance, CPUUtilization, CPUUtilizationMax, ClusterStatusGreen, ClusterStatusRed, ClusterStatusYellow, ClusterUsedSpace, ClusterUsedSpacePercent, DeletedDocuments, FreeStorageSpace, JVMMemoryPressure, Nodes, SearchableDocuments.
The addERI_Cisco_Hyperflex PropertySource and the Cisco_Hyperflex_Topology TopologySource have been added to enhance topology mapping coverage for Cisco HyperFlex.
In v.134, LogicMonitor released a new monitoring package for Cisco UCS that leveraged the UCS Manager API (rather than relying on SNMP as the collection method). With v.136, we are releasing seven more DataSources to increase our API coverage: Cisco_UCS_Fans, Cisco_UCS_PSUs, Cisco_UCS_FabricExtender, Cisco_UCS_FexPorts, Cisco_UCS_SANPortChannels, Cisco_UCS_ChassisPorts, and Cisco_UCS_ServerInterfaces.
We have also released the addERI_Cisco_UCS PropertySource and Cisco_UCS_Topology TopologySource for enhanced topology mapping coverage). For more information on setting up Cisco UCS monitoring via API, see Cisco UCS Monitoring.
Note: These new API DataSources overlap some (but not all) functionality of the existing SNMP-based Cisco UCS DataSources. For now, we are recommending that you do not disable the SNMP-based DataSources, but rather run both sets in parallel. In an upcoming release, we will be expanding the reach of the API-based suite and will, at that time, note any official DataSource deprecations.
This new suite of LogicModules (names are prepended with “Dell_SC”) replaces the Dell Compellent and Dell SC Compellent (names are prepended with “Dell_Compellent” and “Dell_SC_Compellent” respectively) LogicModules for Dell-SC-based systems.
This new suite was added because, in recent hardware, it’s been discovered that the discovery and collection of important data such as temperature, fans, fan status, and other data has become unreliable as Dell transitions away from the older 220.127.116.11.4.1.16139 Compellent technologies OID to the newer 18.104.22.168.4.1.674.11000.2000.500.1 Dell Storage Center OID. This new monitoring suite uses only the latter OID for discovery and collection.
For details on setting up this new monitoring package and model compatibility, see Dell SC Monitoring.
Note: As discussed in the next section, alerting has been disabled for the latest versions of all Dell_Compellent* and Dell_SC_Compellent* LogicModules to prevent duplicate alerting.
Monitors performance metrics (as reported by Stackdriver) for the serverless, fully managed GCP Cloud Run compute platform. Metrics including billable instance time, container CPU/memory allocation and utilization, and request counts and latencies.
Discovers and monitors expiration data for Azure automation certificates.
Monitors various metrics per VPN connection/tunnel (via Azure Monitor) including average bandwidth and egress/ingress data such as volume, packets, and packet drop.
Discovers and monitors WebJobs (via Azure Monitor) as instances for a given app service, allowing customers to monitor job status.
Monitors the SQL Server nodes on a Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC). As discussed in Windows Server Failover Cluster (on SQL Server) Monitoring, these new LogicModules are intended to be run in conjunction with LogicMonitor’s SQL Server monitoring suite.
Monitors received NetFlow packets for the Collector associated with the NetFlow device and alerts if time since the most recent NetFlow heartbeat exceeds idle interval.
LogicMonitor has released a new monitoring package for Ruckus ZoneDirector. The various metrics monitored include uptime, CPU, memory, WLANs, WLAN clients, WLAN access point radios, WLAN error rates, and rogue WiFi signals. For details on setting up this new monitoring package, see Ruckus ZoneDirector Monitoring.
This functionality of this new DataSource is identical to that of the existing snmp64_If- DataSource, with the exception that it is written in Groovy. Its purpose is to increase efficiency, performance, and scalability and is intended to eventually replace the snmp64_If- DataSource. As of now, no default alerting is enabled in this new DataSource.
Monitors the status of SaaS applications with publicly-accessible status data hosted by Atlassian Statuspage (statuspage.io). For details on setting up this new monitoring package, see Atlassian Statuspage (statuspage.io) Monitoring.
Aggregates user QoS (quality of service) metrics for Zoom meetings including audio and video latency, jitter, bitrate, and average loss.
Update datapoints to reference the new AWS metric path of TransitGateway rather than TransitGatewayId.
For the Cisco_ASA_Fans DataSource, removed the lower RPM fan speed alert threshold for the FanSpeed datapoint; for the Cisco_ASA_Temperature DataSource, fixed the logic for the scale lookup and scaleArray match to value.
Updated data collection script to use the toLong() function to convert the values of the storage_provisioned datapoint.
Updated the addCategory_Cisco_UCS PropertySource for enhanced topology mapping coverage.
Inserted additional script API response checks to check for HTTP 404 error codes; performed minor Active Discovery and data collection script cleanup.
As discussed in the previous section, a new suite of LogicModules (names are prepended with “Dell_SC”) has been released to replace all current Dell Compellent and Dell SC Compellent (names are prepended with “Dell_Compellent” and “Dell_SC_Compellent” respectively) LogicModules for Dell-SC-based systems. To avoid duplicate alerting, alerting has been disabled for all Dell_Compellent* and Dell_SC_Compellent* LogicModules.
Added support for the NetScaler manufacturer endpoint.
Removed mentions of “SSL” in alert messages.
Added missing overview graphs; cleaned up various regular graphs, datapoint descriptions, and alert messages.
Updated Active Discovery script to add container environment variables as instance-level properties.
Fixed issue in data collection script when calculating number of teleworkerGateways; added session close logic into helper method; performed minor script cleanup.
Added new datapoints to monitor ARP and BGP availability, as well as global reach and QoS bandwidth metrics.
Adopted default datapoint data aggregation returned by the Azure API to mirror how data is displayed by Azure monitoring dashboard.
Added multi-output formatting support to address Active Discovery issues.
Removed duplicate token request; ensured -BasicParsing is passed into request.
For the Office365_Reports_MicrosoftTeamsDeviceUsage, Office365_Reports_OutlookEmailActivity, Office365_Reports_ServicesUserActivity, and Office365_SharepointOnline_SiteStatus DataSources, the Validate-Null function has been updated to return Null or Empty instead of defaulting to 0. In addition, performed PowerShell code cleanup and formatting.
REMOVED: Due to the creation of excessive instances, the following DataSources have been removed from the LogicMonitor repository: Office365_Reports_UserActivityDetails, Office365_Reports_OneDriveUserActivityDetail, Office365_Reports_SkypeforBusinessUserActivityDetail.
Updated the WinSQLServices- DataSource, along with three PropertySources (addCategory_MSSQL, Microsoft_SQLServer_Connections, and Microsoft_SQLServer_SQLAuthConnections). The PropertySources are now cluster aware to accommodate the new monitoring capabilities introduced by the newly-released Microsoft SQL Server Failover Cluster DataSource. In addition, these PropertySources have been updated to use SQL authentication when the jdbc.mssql.user and jdbc.mssql.pass properties are populated on the device. For the Microsoft_SQLServer_Connections PropertySource, a stray 0 was removed from the script that was preventing data collection.
For the WinSQLServices- DataSource, the AppliesTo statement has been updated to prevent double reporting on Windows Server Failover Clusters. The data collection script for the Microsoft_SQLServer_SystemJobs DataSource was updated to be compatible with systems that have case sensitivity enabled.
Added upper kernel limit of 7.7 to accommodate an issue in Red Hat EL7 net-snmp version 5.7.2-43-el7 (as this is now fixed in version net-snmp-5.7.2-47.el7). This was released along with EL7 kernel 7.8. A fully updated system with kernel EL7 version 7.8 will be running net-snmp-5.7.2-47.el7 or higher.
Removed the No Data alert on the PeerAlert complex datapoint; updated Active Discovery and data collection scripts with debug output flag feature; updated tech notes to reflect multi-context support requirements.
For the Slack_Services_Status DataSource, added an alert threshold to the status datapoint for out-of-the-box alerting. For the Slack Events EventSource, updated event capture logic to better capture events and alert when there are updates to outages.
To improve topology mapping operations, the Active Discovery script for the following DataSources was updated to accommodate namespaces containing commas.
To improve topology mapping operations, the Active Discovery script for the following DataSources was updated to eliminate the passing of empty maps when calling SNMP WalkAsMap, which was preventing proper instance discovery in certain environments.
Almost every published addERI PropertySource in the LogicMonitor repository had minor updates applied for the purpose of enhancing topology mapping display and operations. These updates include script enhancements to (1) accommodate namespaces containing commas and (2) eliminate the passing of empty maps when calling SNMP WalkAsMap, which was preventing proper instance discovery in certain environments.
Note: There are only three addERI PropertySources in the LogicMonitor repository that did not receive one of these minor updates: addERI_Kubernetes_Node, addERI_Kubernetes_Pod, and addERI_Kubernetes_Service.
Refactored data collection method to use Groovy script to allow for use specification; improved graphs.
Updated the Active Discovery script to better handle broken VM hardware memory; previously, a single broken VM could impact association of the entire DataSource.
Enhanced topology mapping coverage.
Made multi-thread updates in Active Discovery and data collection scripts for improved performance.
The following features have recently entered beta testing (or will shortly). If you’d like to be considered for participation, we invite you to contact your customer success manager (CSM) for more information.
LogicMonitor is currently beta testing an enhanced alert integration for Slack that leverages our brand new LogicMonitor app for Slack. The alert integration between LogicMonitor and Slack is bi-directional, supporting the ability to:
To learn more about the new Slack integration features available in beta, see Slack Integration: LogicMonitor App Beta.
Last November, LogicMonitor released phase one of our AIOps Early Warning System. In this first phase, we brought you dynamic thresholds and root cause analysis. As part of our phase two efforts, we’re expanding the capabilities of dynamic thresholds.
As discussed in Enabling Dynamic Thresholds for Datapoints, dynamic thresholds currently suppress alert notification routing if the alert’s triggering value is not deemed anomalous by our anomaly detection algorithms. In other words, alert notifications that represent data values that fall within expected data ranges are automatically suppressed for the purpose of reducing unnecessary alert noise.
With the improvements available in this beta, dynamic thresholds will also automatically alert on values that fall outside expected data ranges.
By building upon our ability to recognize and proactively act upon anomalous data, we’re giving you the best of both worlds:
Beta participation requirements: In order to participate in the beta program for dynamic thresholds (phase two), you must have a sandbox account and be running LogicMonitor Enterprise.
