v.172 Release NotesLast updated on 15 October, 2022
LogicMonitor v.172 is scheduled to roll out to customer portals from July 4 through Jul 13.
- Feature Highlights: Expanded coverage for Kubernetes KSM monitoring. EA Collector 32.200 release.
- General Updates: Added support for new OpenZFS and NetApp ONTAP AWS FSx file systems, tracking for website usage in Account Information, logs collection support to Linux, Docker, and Kubernetes-based OpenTelemetry Collector installations, and more.
- Updated Monitoring: New modules to monitor Azure Databrick, Azure resource health, and Kubernetes KSM-based jobs, cronjobs, and deployments.
Expanded Kubernetes KSM Monitoring
You can now use new Kubernetes monitoring modules that are based on the kubestatemetrics (KSM) service and the Summary API. This improves the performance of the monitoring services by offering a wider coverage. The new modules are prefixed by “Kubernetes_KSM” and replace existing modules for monitoring pods, deployments, and nodes. For more information, see New LogicModules
Recommendation: Install the new modules for enhanced coverage and performance. A sunset plan will be announced for existing modules in an upcoming release.
New Collector Release
EA Collector 32.200 was released on June 27, 2022.
- This Collector release expands the CyberArk credential vault integration to support CyberArk dual account, eliminating delays such as password rotation that may be encountered when using CyberArk single account.
- Upgrading to this release will remove all “mongo” settings from agent.conf because MONGO will no longer be supported as a separate collector type. You can still use other collector types, such as SCRIPT, as well as DataSources to monitor MongoDB instances.
For more information, see EA Collector 32.200 Release Notes.
- Fixed an issue that caused suppressed alerts triggered multiple simultaneous notifications.
- Added support for new OpenZFS and NetApp ONTAP AWS FSx file systems.
- Fixed an issue that prevented Azure Backup Jobs from being discovered.
- Added support for logs collection on Linux, Docker, and Kubernetes-based OpenTelemetry Collector installations.
- Fixed an issue that caused the LM Logs Logstash plugin to ignore HTTP configuration items and run with default HTTP settings.
- The NetFlow Traffic threshold-based alerting feature is now available for beta participants in production environments; however, the feature must be enabled. If you would like to participate, contact your customer success manager (CSM) for more information.
- Added a column to the OpenTelemetry Collectors page to display the Type, which can be Traces or Logs.
- You can now track your website usage against the committed number of websites and view this information in your Accounts Information page. For more information, see Limits, Quotas, and Contraints.
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.
|New monitoring coverage for Kubernetes KSM-based jobs, cronjobs, and deployments.|
|New Monitoring for Azure Databrick.|
Azure Resource Health
|New monitoring for Azure resource health events.|
|New PropertySource to add system category automatically. Also adds a new property (auto.emc.cache) to identify which types of cache are used by the device and apply the appropriate module(s) accordingly.|
|New PropertySource to override the previous NoSnmpIf system category.|
|Expanded topology support for more granular identification of device types.|
|Common configs now use a time filter to try and catch prompt lines with embedded timecodes.|
|Added two complex datapoints – VolumeThroughputPercentage and VolumeIOPSPercentage.|
|Made corrections to metric paths.|
|Updated to include additional handling for empty responses and more robust pagination support.|
|Added optional host property – cisco.ipsec.aggtun.threadpoolsize – to allow for threaded SNMP walk execution (allowed range 1-10), and null value bailout for asciiConverterI().|
|Updated modules to use v1 of the Meraki API (except for Cisco_Meraki_Licensing which provides data that is not currently available in v1). Fixed a bad value range in the status datapoint in Cisco_Meraki_UplinkApplianceStatus. Added missing timing variables in the *Interfaces modules.|
|Improved instances by adding descriptions and new instance properties.|
|Added a tech note to Dell_PowerConnect_Interfaces to warn that this module will be deprecated in the near future in favor of SNMP_Network_Interfaces. Changed datapoints inOctets and outOctets from counter to derive.|
Dell_PowerConnect_Interfaces was initially developed to address discovery-based indexing issues that were seen in PowerConnect environments and caused collection issues where duplicate interface descriptions existed. This has since been addressed in SNMP_Network_Interfaces which also includes stability fixes in larger environments.
To transition from Dell_PowerConnect_Interfaces to SNMP_Network_Interfaces, you should import the latest versions of all 4 modules mentioned in this release so that the proper DataSources are applied. Once SNMP_Network_Interfaces is applied and data collection confirmed, Dell_PowerConnect_Interfaces should be disabled. For more information, see Disabling Monitoring for a DataSource.
|Updated appliesTo for EMC_FastCache_NaviSecCli and EMC_SPCache_NaviSecCli using new property. A fallback has been added to ensure that devices that have not had the new PropertySource run on them will not experience historical data loss when updating. Additional updates to bring all modules in package to current standards.|
|Added new datapoints for readyreplicas.|
|Fixed headless service alerts.|
|Updated to handle datapoints db_row_size, db_max_row_size and db_log_max_size correctly. Some datapoints remain for backwards compatibility with older versions of SQL server that do not have performance counters.|
|Removed undefined cluster disks and duplicate disks.|
|Fixed node topology for NetApp clusters.|
|Added support for Azure certificates.|
|Updated tags for improved searchability.|
|Updated display names and alert messages.|
|Added support for user-defined port via the optional host property unifi.port. If you are using a port other than 8443 for API access and have been relying on HTTPS with no port specified in the URL to redirect API calls correctly, you will need to set this property before importing to prevent data loss.|
|Updated tags for improved searchability. Changed Active Discovery to automatically delete instances that are not discovered. Data retention is set for 30 days, so will aliases (Edge Names) that are rediscovered within 30 days will have historical data populated. Edges and links that have not sent data for the last 30 days will not have historical data retained.|
|Updated Powershell scripts to handle password strings better.|
|Removed testing group.|
|Added NetSNMP to system.categories generated and expanded appliesTo to be case insensitive match.|
|Updated tags for improved searchability.|
|Added a new filter to Aruba configs.|
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 Date|
