General Updates

Alerting

Enhancements

  • You can now manage datapoint threshold levels at the instance group and instance level. By default, new instances inherit the properties of the instance group.

Container Monitoring

Enhancements

  • You can now see several new resources such as Jobs, Deployments, and ReplicaSets in your Kubernetes topology map.
  • Updated the cluster overview dashboard to include resource usage charts such as CPU and Memory used by the pods and the nodes in the cluster.
  • Added new dashboards for tracking pods and nodes metrics.

Cloud Monitoring

Enhancements

  • Updated Cloud Common Library to 7.0.0.
  • Added BurstBalance to the AWS_RDS datasource.
  • Added monitoring for replication lag time for Azure Site Recovery.
  • Made improvements to the Azure Recovery Protected Items auto properties.
  • Added basic properties for data backups and recovery in Azure.
  • Added support for data collection and monitoring in Azure China regions. These regions will only be available for accounts that are valid in China and have a China Subscription ID.
  • Added support for discovering and monitoring AWS Transfer Family servers using the LM AWS Integration.

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected handling of BytesReceivedRate in Microsoft_Azure_NetworkInterface datasource to correctly show the data.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Azure Databricks were from being discovered or monitored.
  • Fixed an issue where the Basic Info fields were not populating for AWS and Azure Info tabs.
  • For auto-deleted cloud resources, alerting is now disabled before deletion to ensure that open alerts clear, rather than remaining open with no closure options after the resource is deleted.

LM Logs

Enhancements

  • You can now create log pipelines and log alert conditions from the logs action menu. For more information, see Log Processing Pipelines and Log Alert Conditions in the product documentation.
  • You can now use a Stop button on the Logs page to stop long-running queries. For more information, see Logs Query Language.

Bug Fixes

  • Log pipeline queries did not generate log alerts if the query included a resource group.
  • LogSources did now import from the repository when safe import was disabled.

NetScan

Enhancements

  • Unmonitored hosts associated with a Netscan execution are now removed when the execution record is removed. Previously, other delete actions would unexpectedly fail due to the lingering unmonitored host records.

REST API

Enhancements

SaaS Monitoring

Enhancements

  • The output from the Zoom Room API is now stored in Redis cache, which resolves the 429: too many request error that was occurring.

Topology

Enhancements

  • When clicking Explore Maps from the Maps tab in a Resource page or viewing the Maps tab on individual alerts, your context and map progress is now saved. This makes it easier to troubleshoot with the topology map when using an alert as the entry point. Previously it would reset when navigating to the main mapping canvas from one of these tabs.
  • The Mapping page now shows more information about each saved map and makes it easier for you to quickly switch between saved maps. For more information, see Saved Maps.
  • You can now view port-level information on the topology map when clicking on Network-type edges. For more information, see Interface Mapping.

Cisco_UCS_Sessions
Improved session handling in collector script cache and additional debug messages. Now checks the expiration time of the cache entry for the UCS session and will proactively log out and get a fresh session when expiry will occur in less than 5 polling cycles. We highly recommend all customers using this module upgrade collectors to version 32.200 or higher which contains persistent script cache and will have less chance of losing sessions due to script cache volatility.

Deprecated LogicModules

The following 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.

Replacement:

snmpTCPUDP
LogicMonitor deprecated the recently released PaloAlto SDWAN package because it failed to meet our quality standards.

Recommendation: Use LogicMonitor’s native SNMP capabilities to monitor Palo Alto Network Prisma SN-WAN Instant-On (“ION”) devices (formerly Cloudgenix).


LogicMonitor is actively assessing how to leverage Palo Alto Networks’ Unified SASE SD-WAN API to deliver complementary, additional monitoring value to Prisma SD-WAN customers and partners.
