v.171 Release NotesLast updated on 15 October, 2022
LogicMonitor v.171 is scheduled to roll out to customer portals from June 13 through June 22.
- Feature Highlights: Create new log pipelines and log alert conditions using log queries. New monitoring for service-level AWS ECS Container Insights metrics and Palo Alto SD-WAN sites and elements. New EA and GD Collector releases.
- General Updates: Expanded support for the PagerDuty EU API URLs. For LM Cloud, updated AWS CloudWatch metric timestamps.
- Updated Monitoring: New modules to monitor AWS Backups, to support Telnet in Common Configs, and to add self-monitoring for Kubernetes KSM, and more.
Log Pipeline and Log Alert Conditions Improvements
You can now use the Logs Query Language when creating log pipelines and log alert conditions. Log queries allow you to filter and parse events using logical operators and log metadata values. Log pipeline and log alert creation now opens in a panel at the bottom of the Logs page instead of in a popup modal.
AWS ECS ContainerInsights Updates
We moved the service-level AWS ECS ContainerInsights DataSource to a new multi-instance DataSource, AWS ECS ContainerInsights Service. We added Dynamic Thresholds on each of the complex datapoints, and enabled Dynamic Thresholds on the existing complex Datapoints in all existing ECS DataSources. For more information see LogicModule Releases.
New Palo Alto SD-WAN Monitoring
We released a new suite of modules for Palo Alto SD-WAN (formerly CloudGenix SD-WAN) monitoring sites and traffic they generate, as well as CloudGenix SD-WAN elements (or devices) and their statuses. For more information, see Palo Alto Prisma SD-WAN Monitoring.
New Collector Releases
EA Collector 32.100
EA Collector 32.100 released on 3 June 2022. This collector release contains improvements to Netscan policies for scanning CIDR ranges. For the full list of updates, see EA Collector 32.100 Release Notes.
GD Collector 32.000
GD Collector 32.000 was released on 3 June 2022 and is based on the previously released EA Collector 31.200. For the full list of updates, see GD Collector 32.000 Release Notes.
- Fixed an issue where multiple SMS notifications were being sent even though alerts were cleared.
- Fixed an issue that prevented the SLA Dashboard widget from rendering properly if it contained special characters.
- For AWS CloudWatch data, updated metric timestamps to match the timestamps seen in AWS CloudWatch.
- Fixed a bug in the Azure Integration setup that displayed a blank screen when users clicked the Get Subscription button on the permissions page.
- We have expanded support for the PagerDuty EU API URLS. Now you can use a PagerDuty URL Region that you prefer for the integration.
- The Clear on Acknowledge function is not intuitive when adding log alert conditions. The Auto Clear after setting will clear alerts after the specified time in minutes, even if the toggle is off. Alerts will only be acknowledge if the toggle for the setting is on.
- Fixed an issue in the OpenMetrics DataSource Wizard that prevented you from resizing columns.
New and updated LogicModules are available for you to import from the LogicMonitor Public Repository. This section lists the LogicModules that are new in this release, updated in this release, or will be removed in a future release. Changes related to the LogicModule feature will be listed under General Updates.
|Added Telnet support for Common Configs. Added Telnet Common Config check and updated AppliesTo of other common config checks to take it into account.|
See Updated LogicModules for more Common Config improvements.
|New monitoring for AWS backups.|
|New module to provide service level metrics for AWS ECS Containers.|
See Updated LogicModules and Deprecated LogicModules for related changes to AWS_ECS_* DataSources.
|New Kubernetes self-monitoring for kube state metrics (KSM).|
See Updated LogicModules for related PropertySource.
|New coverage for Palo Alto Networks Prisma SD-WAN (formerly known as CloudGenix SD-WAN).|
|Common Config improvements to Active Discovery. Improved Common Config filters for timestamps. Updated timeouts for all “common ConfigSources” to make better use of available execution time.|

See New LogicModules and Deprecated LogicModules for related changes to AWS_ECS_* DataSources
|Removed unused code.|
|Added explicit timeouts to SNMP walks to prevent timeouts on slower devices.|
|Fixed an issue in Active Discovery regex filter that prevented instances from being discovered.|
|Reduced overall API calls by switching to batch versions of calls. Updated graphs, general cleanup, and rewrote modules as snippets for maintainability.|
|The HPE 3PAR suite has been rewritten to parse output dynamically to ensure correct data collection regardless of output formatting (hardcoded fallback remains for situations that cannot be parsed dynamically). Made improvements to graphs and maintainability using snippets.|
Note: Requires the collector to run groovy scripts in agent, groovy.script.runner=agent in collector configuration file agent.conf. For more information, see Editing the Collector Configuration Files.
Data loss will occur for battery and PSU instances in HP_3PAR_HardwareHealth. Instances previously had naming collisions causing monitoring to be incomplete
|Updated display names to match style guidelines.|
|Updated status code mapping for |
|Fixed an issue in the query command.|
|Added try and catch for certificate check.|
|Fixed an issue in the parameters passed to HTTP function call which caused the script to fail.|

|Removed debug print statement.|
|Made Topology improvements.|
|Expanded Kubernetes monitoring to include self-monitoring for kube state metrics.|
See New LogicModules for related monitoring updates.
|Expanded API version support.|
|Expanded appliesTo to include Netscaler devices.|
|Updated topology tags for F5 and Cisco devices.|
|Fixed a namespace script error.|
|Fixed an issue that caused manual instances to be ignored. Added handling for blank or missing mssql.integrated_security device property.|
|Blocked applying a certain LLDP ID OUI matching routine to Araknis devices.|
This table lists LogicModules that we are deprecating in this release. This means that these LogicModules will be removed in a future release. If available, a replacement LogicModule is listed. For the history of deprecated modules, see Deprecated LogicModules.
|Details||End of Support|
|Replaced the old module that did not filter services properly and reported intermittent or no data for a number of datapoints.||06/17/2022|
In this section, you will find announcements about upcoming beta features, updates about ongoing beta features, and information about the end-of-life of existing features.
Troubleshooting WMI Collection Notice
Microsoft published a Windows DCOM Server security feature bypass (CVE-2021-26414) to address vulnerabilities with WMI. You need to first patch the Collector device and then the monitored device to the latest updates to resolve the issue. For more information, see Data Collection Failure due to WMI Vulnerabilities.
MongoDB Collector Type Remove Notice
The future LogicMonitor EA Collector 32.200 release will no longer have MONGO as a separate collector type. Upgrading to this release will remove all “mongo” settings from agent.conf. You can still use other collector types, such as SCRIPT, and DataSources to monitor MongoDB instances. For more information, see MongoDB Monitoring.
Azure China Regions Monitoring Beta
Select users can opt-in and start monitoring their Azure China Cloud accounts. Contact LogicMonitor Support to enable this beta feature for your LogicMonitor portal. After the feature is enabled:
- Add a new Cloud account to be tied to your China-hosted region using the Cloud Account (Legacy) option.
- In the Permissions tab, select the China account checkbox.
- In the Services tab, select the China regions you want to monitor.
If you need additional assistance, contact LogicMonitor Support.
Old Alert Page Removal Notice
Support for the old Alert page (https://accountname.logicmonitor.com/santaba/uiv4/alert) has been removed. Issues related to the old Alert page are no longer being addressed and access to the page will be removed with an upcoming release.
