LogicMonitor v.151 is scheduled to roll out to customer portals from April 19th through April 28th.
- Feature Highlight: Alert Grouping in the new header graph is generally available and now includes a Tree Map visualization option.
- General Updates: Added Zoom and Azure EA Billing to Cloud Monitoring, various fixes to Alerts and LM Logs, and more.
- Updated Monitoring: New LogicModules to monitor Alcatel Aruba OS, Rubrik, Ruckus SZ systems, and more.
Alert Grouping, now with Tree Map Visualization
The new header graph and alert grouping functionality is now generally available on all LogicMonitor accounts. In an earlier version of this feature, the time-series header graph provided immediate visual insight into an alert storm or related events requiring investigation. In this release, we’ve improved the performance of the alert grouping and added a new Tree Map visualization option for the header graph.
The Tree Map graph allows you to select two dimensions when grouping alerts. For example, you can select LogicModule and Resources to get a grouping of all LogicModules that are “in alert” for the given time range, as well as a count of the number of resources with each LogicModule alert. Using the header graph to drill down into a LogicModule will further group the alerts by Resources with that LogicModule alert.
For more information about the alert graph header and alert grouping, see Managing Alerts from the Alerts Page.
- ADDED Datapoint names to the Audit Log records when changes are made to the Datapoint value in Dynamic Thresholds.
- ADDED an error message if the number of alerts being grouped exceeds the maximum limit of 10,000 alerts.
- CHANGED the column name “Dependency Routing State” to “Notification State” on the Alerts page.
- FIXED an issue in the Alerts page where expanding the Support panel caused it to overlap the workspace. The panel will now “push” the content as it expands, allowing users to see what they are working on as well as the Support information. This fix also applies to modals.
- FIXED an issue in the Alerts page where selecting and deselecting filters changed the total alert count. The total alert count should be the same regardless of filter selection.
- FIXED an issue in the Alerts page where the UI showed time-based thresholds when they didn’t exist.
- ADDED support for Azure Enterprise Agreement type billing information. To monitor your Azure EA Billing, input your subscription information and import the new DataSources to your portal. (Note: LogicModule updates will be available in an upcoming release.)
- ADDED support for monitoring data from Zoom. Add Zoom to your portal from Exchange > Cloud Integrations. To monitor data from Zoom, you will need to provide a Client ID and Secret Key when setting up the integration, add the resource, and import the Zoom DataSources.
- CHANGED the naming of HPA resources to use a combination of name and namespace. Previously, HPA resources were not being added if their system.hostname value were duplicated in the Collector.
- CHANGED the commands for adding the LogicMonitor Helm chart repository. GitHub has stopped redirecting from ‘github.com’ to ‘github.io’. Because of this, we’ve updated the ‘helm repo add’ command in our UI. If you’ve previously added LogicMonitor charts, you will need to run the following command to re-add charts with the ‘github.io’ command to avoid failure of helm updates:
helm repo add logicmonitor https://logicmonitor.github.io/k8s-helm-charts
- EA Collector 30.101 will be available in an upcoming release.
- ADDED alerts into the Logs page. Alerts are now viewable in the logs table and header graph.
- ADDED RBAC Logs management for log ingestion. Permissions can be set to specify which users are allowed to send logs to LM Logs.
- FIXED an issue in Pipelines where the regular expression was matching incorrectly and causing the pipeline to not work.
LM Service Insight
- FIXED an issue where delayed data will result in incorrect aggregations and sometimes lead to false alerts. We will show “No Data” for aggregations if we don’t have enough data to avoid this issue.
- CHANGED appliesTo criteria to not allow any sensitive property within functions.
- FIXED an issue where editing Dynamic Groups would display different error messages if the description was too long and included the keyword “update”. The maximum limit for the description field is 255 characters.
- When inheriting properties, the device will match the child-level property only, so you may see an addition or deletion of resources depending on the case.

Removed redundant SNMP parameters from scripts. Only handle specific exceptions. Add port checks to addCategory_Linux_SSH, addCategory_MySQL, addCategory_Nomad, addCategory_Vault, Linux_SSH_Info and adddCategory_Consul. Moved properties set by addCategory_HyperV to Device_BasicInfo. Pass filter to WMI query rather than fetching all services and enumerating in script in addCategory_Citrix_Licensing. Updated AppliesTo for addCategory_MicrosoftExchange to look for devices monitored by Windows collectors instead of Linux collectors.|
|addCategory_CitrixEUEM||(PropertySource) Make Citrix EUEM detection work even when there aren’t any running sessions.|
|addCategory_Dell_PowerConnect||(DataSource) Check SNMP response size instead of enumerating over response content.|
|addCategory_Dell_PowerConnect||(PropertySource) Check SNMP response size instead of enumerating over response content.|
|addCategory_LogicMonitorPortal||(PropertySource) Updated AppliesTo function to exclude status.logicmonitor.com devices.
Note: The category will need to be manually removed from any status.logicmonitor.com on which it is already set since status.logicmonitor.com is not a valid LogicMonitor portal.

|Details||End of Support Date|
|Modules generate an excessive amount of instances for ephemeral devices, in some cases multiple for a single device. These modules are known to cause performance issues and should be deleted or disabled.||2021-07-01|
|Old module did not produce unique wildvalues, new module uses scripted discovery to produce unique wildvalues by combining test name and owner. It is recommended that the old module be disabled to preserve historical data.||2021-04-22|
For the list of LogicModules deprecated over the past five releases, see the support article Deprecated LogicModules.
OpenMetrics DataSource Wizard enters beta
The OpenMetric DataSource Wizard will be available on sandbox account environments soon. The wizard requires EA Collector 30.100. The wizard can be used to quickly load OpenMetrics (Prometheus exposition format) from a provided URL endpoint and create a DataSource for ingesting the data into your LogicMonitor account. If you are interested in participating in the beta, please contact your CSM for more information.
Sunset of the RPC API
We have decided to focus on improving the LogicMonitor Rest API, which has higher security standards and integration capabilities that are more in-line with our future development goals. This means that we are preparing to end support for the RPC API with the upcoming release of LogicMonitor v.156. If you are using the RPC API for Ansible, reach out to Support for guidance on migrating playbooks to the REST API.
