Instance Groups

LogicMonitor supports instance groups to show relationships between instances.  

For example, using  instance groups, LogicMonitor could show disk instances as:

Instance groups and their members can be managed manually from the Instances Tab for a datasource, so long as the datasources doesn't have automatic grouping enabled:

From the Instances Tab you can:

  1. drag and drop instances from one group to another,
  2. add new groups and instances (assuming Active Discovery is not enabled for the datasource),
  3. select the manage gear icon for a particular instance to designate which group(s) the instance should belong to,
  4. select multiple instances and then select 'Move To Instance Group' form the Actions drop down menu - this is useful where there are many instances, and the target group you wish to drag the instance(s) to is not visible

Unmonitored Instances

The default instance group will be "Unmonitored." If monitoring is disabled for an instance, this group will automatically be created and populated with the unmonitored instance(s). You can also disable monitoring for an instance by dragging it into this group. Conversely, you can reenable monitoring for an instance by dragging it out of this group and into an active instance group.  

Deleting Instance Groups

To delete an instance group, click the arrow on the lefthand side of the instance group title. A dropdown menu will appear from which you will click "delete."
