Actionable insights for server performance
End-to-end server monitoring provides full visibility into infrastructure health. Ingesting server log data provides an improved correlated impact on performance and uptime and helps identify issues before they cause customer disruptions.
LM Envision spots anomalous server log events to help minimize disruptions to service issues, such as common configuration changes or patch updates that could disrupt connectivity. Create LM alerts from anomalous server logs to ensure proactive monitoring for business-critical servers with contextual information.

LogicMonitor: Highly Recommended
LogicMonitor replaced the others because it provides better value for us: it is more effective, reliable and efficient at delivering functionality.

Using LogicMonitor as a Non-MSP
LogicMonitor’s licensing is per device instead of SolarWinds per interface. This means a switch only needs one license compared to SolarWinds licensing per port on the switch. SolarWind’s GUI is old and not very intuitive to new users. Setting up users in LogicMonitor is super easy and the use of roles makes managing permissions simple.

The Lowdown on LM
[LogicMonitor is] great for keeping an eye on infrastructure at a small scale (office-wide) or large scale (planet-wide).

LogicMonitor is Time Saving Magic!
Hands down the best support we have received from any vendor. Same top tier experience at any time of the day whether it is a simple question or a complex issue. They listen to feedback and do their best to implement feedback on problems that are discovered. Support is always providing references and material to learn more about what you are asking in a non-condescending manner which is appreciative.

Second time LogicMonitor customer
LogicMonitor’s onboarding process is smooth. Typically you would have an engagement with professional services to walk through the tool and have assistance onboarding select devices. The support portal has excellent documentation on adding third party environments like AWS and Azure into the platform. Additionally, the ability to setup NetScans to automatically enroll devices is welcome.

LogicMonitor is how monitoring should be.
There are few scenarios where LogicMonitor is not the right choice as a monitoring platform; in fact I cannot think of any where LogicMonitor was the issue.

Server Monitoring Benefits
Rapidly monitor server health
Quickly drill down into CPU, memory, and many other OS metrics from your servers. Track your server-based applications such as databases, mail servers, and web servers. Go beyond basic server monitoring and see how the performance of your servers correlates to cloud instances, virtual machines, RAID controllers, physical drives, battery systems, interfaces, and other hardware.
Keep your teams informed with incident response automation
Automated reporting and ITSM integrations with ServiceNow, Ansible, PagerDuty, Connectwise, Slack, and more to help teams communicate, troubleshoot, and optimize IT infrastructure rapidly.
Automate server discovery
Advanced network scanning and automated deployment make discovery simple – just add the hostname or IP address range of the devices you want to monitor and LogicMonitor does the rest.
Reduce alert noise
Distinguish service-impacting alerts from non-service impacting alerts. Reduce alert fatigue with dynamic thresholds, intelligent anomaly detection, and root cause analysis.
Identify performance trends
Predictive analytics, anomaly detection, and intelligent forecasting allow you to prevent resource shortages and improve infrastucture planning.
Powerful, real-time dashboards
Get started fast with fully customizable and scalable, pre-built dashboards. Powerful visualizations let you present data the way you want to see it with charts, graphs, tables, and more.
Monitor your entire cloud infrastructure
Monitor servers on-prem and in the cloud with a single pane of glass.

Server monitoring FAQs
- What is server monitoring?
Server monitoring is a process through which you gain visibility into the activity on your servers — whether physical or virtual. Servers are devices (or increasingly, applications) that store and process information that is provided to other devices, applications, or users on-demand. System resources related to relevant servers are tracked for specific states and changes. Server performance monitoring can help keep track of the hardware and processes critical for keeping the server functional and can help make sure your system is generally performing optimally.
- Why is server monitoring important?
System resources related to relevant servers are tracked for specific states and changes. Server performance monitoring can help keep track of the hardware and processes and help make sure your system is performing optimally.
- What is a physical server?
A physical server is a powerful computer — usually stored in a data center for business-use cases. They run operating systems and applications off of their internal hardware resources.
- What is a virtual machine?
A virtual server is typically a shared software environment that emulates the functions of server hardware. Virtual servers are commonly obtained from specialized providers that operate infrastructure comprising hundreds of thousands of physical servers, which are located in data centers around the world.
- How does the LM collectors determine what metrics to monitor for the server?
When you add a device into monitoring, LogicMonitor applies built-in intelligence to recognize what kind of device it is. Based on the information discovered about the device, LogicMonitor DataSources are applied. DataSources are templates that tell the Collector how to monitor the device, what metrics to collect for the device, how to display those metrics as graphs, and what values indicate issues that need attention. LogicMonitor contains hundreds of pre-built DataSources that are automatically applied when you add devices into your account.
