About LM™ Service Insight

Last updated on 17 October, 2022

LM Service Insight enables you to monitor the health of instances of one or more monitored resources together. Use LM Service Insight when monitoring the instances of multiple resources is a higher priority than the health of individual monitored resources. For example, you may use LM™ Service Insight to monitor an application running across many containers, where an individual, ephemeral, and containerized application instance is not necessarily indicative of overall application performance.  

LM Service Insight groups instances of one or more monitored resources into a logical group. This process is known as a Service. LM Service Insight aggregates service level indicators across these instances to obtain service level data. Use the service level data to monitor, visualize, and generate alerts for this group of monitored instances.

Use LM Service Insight to store service level data across multiple devices and instances. You can retain historical data even if some instances are later removed from the LogicMonitor portal. 

With LM Service Insight, you can create a custom logical resource based on the individual resources you are monitoring. Service DataSources aggregate metrics that are collected by standard DataSources. This provides information on how individual resources contributes to the delivery of a particular service.The data gathered by service DataSources is preserved even if the constituent instances change. You can configure alert thresholds for service datapoints to notify you when the aggregated data indicates a problem with service performance or availability.

More about LM™ Service Insight

LM™ Service Insight is based on a new LogicMonitor resource type, Services. Services comprise instances across one or more monitored devices. DataSources with a collection method of ‘Aggregate data’ are applied to Services, and the datapoints within these DataSources specify what data should be aggregated and how. Data is aggregated according to the DataSource across all instances that make up the Service.
