v.169 Release Notes

LogicMonitor v.169 is now scheduled to roll out to customer portals from May 4 through May 16.

Highlights

  • Feature Highlights: Added enhanced monitoring for Lambda Insights and AWS ECS Container Insights, new Maps and Graphs tabs available on the Alerts page. Released Argus v7.0.0
  • General Updates: Added the ability to automatically expand log messages, added the ability to view the display name and ERT when hovering over a node, and the Maps and Graphs Alert Analysis tabs are now available for all users.
  • Updated Monitoring: Added new monitoring for Zoom rooms, additional monitoring for Cisco APIC, and new coverage for Cisco ISIS devices.

Feature Highlights

Enhanced Monitoring for Lambda Insights and AWS ECS Container Insights

  • You can now collect Lambda Insights metrics for AWS Lambda functions that have Lambda Insights’ Enhanced Monitoring enabled. To start collecting this data, import the AWS_Lambda_Insights DataSource.
  • You can now collect AWS ECS Container Insights metrics to view how applications are performing down to the task family level. To start collecting this data, import the AWS_ECS_ContainerInsights and AWS_ECS_ContainerInsights_TaskFamily DataSources and ensure that Container Insights is enabled on the ECS cluster for which you want to view metrics.

New Maps and Graphs Tabs on the Alerts Page

The Maps and Graphs tabs on the Alerts page will be available for all users starting on May 2nd. These tabs streamline troubleshooting and root cause analysis by showing you the information at a glance, without requiring you to click into each alert.

General Updates

Container Monitoring

Enhancements

  • Updated the display names of the kube-state-metrics based LogicModules in order to make them more consistent with the rest of the modules in LM Exchange.
  • The ability to add a Kubernetes cluster has been restricted to users with Administrator privileges or users that have “Manage” permissions for at least one device group.
  • Added a new dashboard for the following resources based on the metrics received from the KSM integration:
    • Daemonsets
    • Replicasets
    • Persistent volumes
    • Statefulsets

For more information, see Monitoring Kubernetes Clusters with kube-state-metrics

Argus v7.0.0 was released with the following updates:

  • Supports Kubernetes (K8S) 1.23 and the latest GoLang libraries along with:
  • Enabled new Resource tree default view with Argus helm chart version 2.0.0 and Argus version v7.
    For more information, see Updating Kubernetes Resource Tree.
  • Added a new LogicModule to support Persistent Volume Claim and Endpoint Monitoring.
  • Added a Kubernetes selector to the LogicMonitor portal as properties so it can be easily used for filtering with the selector in cluster and dynamic group creation based on selector filters.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Pods that had status as complete were not getting deleted.
  • Fixed an issue that caused false 0 replica count alerts raised by LogicMonitor when Kubernetes performed an update on a ReplicaSet by scaling the old ReplicaSet to 0 and bringing up a new ReplicaSet.

LM Cloud

Enhancements

  • Added support for Azure PostgreSQL collection via Flexible Server deployment monitoring.
  • Added support for Azure Postgres DB Flexible Server deployments to the Collector Assignments tab.
  • Added support for monitoring GCP devices in the following regions:
    • us-west3
    • us-west4
    • northamerica-northeast2
    • southamerica-west1
    • asia-south2
    • asia-southeast2
    • asia-east2
    • asia-northeast2
    • asia-northeast3
    • australia-southeast2 

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the azure.country value from displaying properly in the Cloud Account information.

LM APM

Enhancements

  • Updated the authentication method in the OpenTelemetry Collector wizard from Bearer tokens to LMv1 tokens. Existing Collectors will still be supported but you will need to leverage users with LMv1 tokens with the minimum set of required permissions in order to create an OTEL Collector.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Traces page was not viewable by users with Administrator privileges in new trial accounts.

LM Logs

Enhancements

  • Added the ability to automatically expand all log messages using the Wrap Text setting in the Appearances options.
  • Updated the LM Logs Azure script deployment template to allow a non-US region to be selected.

Topology

Enhancements

  • Added the ability to view the display name and ERT when hovering over a node. In addition, you can now move the map around when a node is selected in all layout modes except dynamic.

User Interface

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented some device properties from displaying on the Devices page.
  • Fixed an issue with inconsistent column names between HTML and CSV formatted reports. For the Resource Metric Trend Report, the column name in CSV format was changed from “Device” to “Resource” to match the HTML format.
