You can choose to assign any newly discovered resources to a specific resource group. Alternatively, if you do not wish to add these resources to a group, they will be assigned to the “Unmonitored Resources” group in the Resources tree.
The process of assigning resources discovered via Netscan to a group is different for ICMP, AWS, and Script methods.
Using ICMP Netscan, you can choose to automatically add newly discovered resources to a resource group based on the resource type. To do this, navigate to Device Discovery Rules in the Manage window. Click the + button. This will open a dropdown menu in which you can specify that a certain resource type (Cisco, Linux, Windows, NetApp, or a Custom Query) be automatically added to a specific resource group.
In the following screenshot, you can see that all discovered Cisco resource will be added to the SB Network resource group.
AWS resources can be assigned to a resource group based upon their respective AWS Tag Filters. To add Tag Filters, navigate to Device Discovery Rules in the Manage window. Click the + button. This will open a dropdown menu in which you can assign resource that have specific AWS Tag Filters to a specific resource group.
For example, resources with the Tag Key of “Billing” and Tag Value of “TechOps” will be assigned to resource group SB Network.
- You can use glob expressions with the tag filter (e.g. tag value = prod*)
- Multiple filters will be logically connected with an OR
- The tag filter is case sensitive
To automatically add newly discovered resources from a Script NetScan to a specific resource group, go to the Default Group section from the Manage page. You can assign any resources discovered with your specific Script query to a resource group of your choosing.
In the screenshot below, any resources discovered using the Groovy script will be added to the Location2 resource group.
LogicMonitor automatically adds a dynamic resource group named “Minimal Monitoring,” which displays resources that were discovered via Netscan, but not properly identified (typically due to incorrect SNMP community strings, WMI credentials, etc).
“Minimal Monitoring” is preconfigured to add resources that match an AppliesTo of
system.sysinfo=="" && system.sysoid=="" && isDevice() && !(system.virtualization) && !(monitoring=="basic")
