Highlights

  • Feature Highlights: New LogicMonitor Notification Center. New support for monitoring Azure Connect Sync, Azure AD Users, and Azure PostgreSQL Citus. Released the LogicMonitor OpenTelemetry Collector on Ansible Galaxy.
  • General Updates: Expanded cloud monitoring for AWS, Azure, and GCP. Improvements to container monitoring.

Feature Highlights

New LogicMonitor Notification Center

Note: Notification Center is currently only available if you have access to the new UI preview. To gain access, contact Customer Success.

LogicMonitor now provides a Notification Center in your LogicMonitor portal to notify you of features that can enhance your experience of LogicMonitor as a platform. For example, your environment may be using a log cloud service and not leveraging LM Logs. LogicMonitor makes you aware of this feature directly in your portal using the Notification Center. From the Notification Center, you can navigate to more information about LM Logs and how you could benefit from the feature. For more information, see Notification Center.

Expanded Monitoring for Microsoft Azure

LogicMonitor cloud monitoring for Azure now includes support for monitoring Azure Connect Sync, Azure Active Directory (AD) Users, and Azure Database for PostgreSQL – Hyperscale (Citus).

  • Azure Connect Sync shows you when Azure AD is enabled and the time since the last sync.
  • Azure AD Users shows you the total number of users, the number of active users, and the number of inactive users.
  • Azure PostgreSQL Citus shows you metrics from your Hyperscale (Citus) servers and server groups.

Release of LMOTEL Collector on Ansible Galaxy

The LogicMonitor OpenTelemetry (LMOTEL) Collector is now available as an Ansible Collection on Ansible Galaxy. The collection includes the Ansible modules and plugin for interacting with LogicMonitor. For more information, see the LogicMonitor Ansible Collection.

General Updates

Application Performance Monitoring

Known Issues

  • The inline support documentation tab does not display in the LMOTEL Collector installation page.

Cloud Monitoring

Enhancements

  • Added the option to “Enable Local Collector” to Azure Postgres monitoring for Hyperscale (Citus).
  • Added a datapoint to AWS NetApp ONTAP FSx that calculates free storage from AWS file system metrics.
  • Updated the Microsoft_Azure_QueueStorage datasource to return a value of 0 instead of No Data / Null when no data exists. This prevents a gap in data collection.
  • Updated the datasource for AWS Lambda services to include metrics for invocations, errors, throttles, duration, concurrent executions, and more.

Bug Fixes

  • The Azure NetApp Monitor was getting incorrect metric lists.
  • Removed or updated datapoints in AWS Athena that were no longer valid.

Known Issues

  • You can no longer create new Azure devices from Resources > Add > Cloud Account (Legacy).

Container Monitoring

Enhancements

  • If you are using a custom container registry to store Collector images, you can now specify the name of the container registry as a parameter in the Helm values file.

Logs

Enhancements

  • Log Anomalies and Log Alert Severity log information is now displayed in their own respective columns. Previously, anomalies and log alert severity were combined into the Severity column.

Settings

Enhancements

  • You can now suspend inactive users in Settings > Account Information.

Deprecated LogicModules

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.

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

Recommendation: Use LogicMonitor’s native SNMP capabilities to monitor Palo Alto Network Prisma SD-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.

Deprecated:
AWS_Backup_Vaults_24h

Replacement:
AWS_Backup_Vaults_1h
This module duplicates AWS_Backup_Vaults_1h and provides no new functionality with the only difference being collection interval. Customers who want to collect data at different intervals should modify DataSources directly or make a clone to customize to suit their needs.October 21, 2022
