Storage Monitoring

LogicMonitor automatically discovers to-the-minute details of industry-leading storage systems. Maintain high-availability with a single unified view for storage monitoring, alerting, and graphing the health and performance of traditional on-premises, hyper-converged, and cloud-based storage systems.

Out-of-the-box storage monitoring for industry-leading solutions, including:

What is storage monitoring?

Storage monitoring tracks the availability, health, and performance of the physical, virtual and cloud storage systems that your business depends on. Data storage is a central component of every IT infrastructure. Because storage devices are prone to failure, monitoring them is crucial to ensure end-user success and overall business continuity.

Modern storage monitoring built for the modern age

Cloud storage systems

Monitor cloud-based storage systems like GCP, Azure, and AWS to rapidly optimize performance across your entire infrastructure.

Hyper-converged and virtualized storage systems

LogicMonitor also supports hyper-converged and virtualized storage systems like Cisco HyperFlex, Nutanix, and VMware vSAN.

Traditional storage systems

Knowing what storage systems are doing – and what they’re not – is critical to running IT operations. Monitor traditional storage systems like NetApp, Cisco, Dell Technologies, HPE, and Pure Storage.

This dashboard provides an a listing of various metrics that are monitored for both NetApp 7-mode and cluser mode. The metrics displayed are counts of: total disks, active disks, spare disks, failed disks, status, real-time CPU utilization, IOPS over time, disk IOPS over time, CPU utilization over time, block operations over time, busiest disks over time, real-time volume utilization

Proactive insight into storage systems for high availability

Get proactive. Combining historical trends with best-practice thresholds to monitor key metrics like capacity, IOPS, disk space, and latency allows you to prevent issues instead of reacting to them.

Correlate storage monitoring along with application and network performance within a single unified view to ensure your mission-critical applications are healthy and online at all times.

Right-size your storage capacity planning

Stay on budget. Monitor the health of your storage systems and avoid running into capacity issues with intelligent forecasting. LogicMonitor provides estimates that examine storage growth trends to pinpoint when you’ll need more resources. So you can buy smart and stay on budget.

For example, let’s say your Netapp system normally runs at 25% capacity. In the last week, usage has increased 10x, eating away at your storage. While this won’t trigger a utilization threshold, if this trend continues, storage will run out fast. Using dynamic thresholds, LogicMonitor can proactively alert you to this change so that you can troubleshoot and plan accordingly.

This dashboard provides an a listing of various metrics that are monitored for Logic Monitor Portal. The metrics displayed are alert counts for: total, warning, error, critical, resource counts for alive and dead, Alert severity over time, severity distribution, resource status over time, resource counts for: total, standard devices, services, website checks, recent logins, users, resource usage over time, configsource instances over time.

Monitor your entire stack together

Visibility across vendors, for your entire stack. Monitor the health and performance of your storage systems alongside your network, cloud, container, and server infrastructure within a single platform. Easily automate storage capacity planning and examine capacity trends with context and correlation to your entire infrastructure.

Enable FinOps with cloud storage monitoring

LogicMonitor enables FinOps by monitoring cloud storage spend across AWS, Azure, and GCP so key stakeholders can gain insights into how much they’re currently spending, how much they should expect to spend in the future, and early warnings about anomalous increases in cloud storage consumption.

Simple Effective Event Log and Resource Monitoring/Alerting tool

LogicMonitor is used by our organization to actively monitor servers and cloud infrastructure for both events and resource utilization. Our main objective is to use the tool to detect and alert IT staff of anomalies or other potential downtime that could impact our customers and employees. LogicMonitor is currently deployed to key infrastructures such as VM hosts, domain controllers, critical servers, and Azure resources such as VMs, Frontdoor, Kubernetes, etc.

LogicMonitor has been a homerun!

More recently, we’ve been able to pull in data from other sources, O365, our phone system, Azure, etc… to build IT Operations dashboards that give us insights in one place rather than multiple different admin centers across all these products.

Monitoring NetApp Clusters with LogicMonitor's storage monitoring

Future-proof your storage monitoring

Monitor traditional storage systems like NetApp, Dell Technologies, Pure Storage, and HPE storage systems alongside cloud-based storage systems like GCP, Azure, and AWS to rapidly optimize performance across your entire infrastructure. LogicMonitor also supports hyper-converged and virtualized storage systems like Cisco HyperFlex, Nutanix, and VMware vSAN.

LogicMonitor Resource Utilization Dashboard

Storage monitoring that scales with you

Graph and alert on utilization, performance, and health metrics like capacity, IOPs, disk usage and more across LUNs, RAID Groups, Storage Pools, and Drives. LogicMonitor automatically discovers new components as your system grows – eliminating any gaps in visibility.

Monitor in minutes

LogicMonitor’s automated discovery starts monitoring and alerting in a matter of minutes without any manual configuration. That’s right; no configuration required. Working with a vendor that doesn’t allow autodiscovery? Just enter a hostname or IP address to quickly discover and add all related storage systems.

Powerful dashboards

Visualize historical trends and forecast future needs. Build drag-and-drop dashboards to view high-level storage metrics or dive deep into granular metrics with ease. See and share data across teams and customers to enable collaboration like never before.

Flexible alerting

Preconfigured and custom alerts are set with dynamic thresholds. Easily route alerts to different teams based on severity, device, technology, groups, or even time of day.
