Come join our live training webinar every other Wednesday at 11am PST and hear LogicMonitor experts explain best practices and answer common questions. We understand these are uncertain times, and we are here to help!
LogicMonitor has DataSources to monitor web pages, processes, services, and UNC Paths. Because Active Discovery is disabled for these DataSources by default, you will need to add web pages, UNC paths, process, and services as instances on a per-device basis. The steps are outlined below:
Note: To monitor a consistent set of processes or services across many devices, it’s more efficient to clone an existing DataSource that already monitors processes or services (such as the WinProcessStats- or Microsoft_Windows_Services DataSource), enable Active Discovery, and add filters to match the processes or services you want to monitor. For an example of cloning an existing DataSource for this purpose, see the Active Discovery use case for Monitoring Windows Services.
The HTTP per Page DataSource will load the web page, and provide a status and the page load time:
Linux processes will be monitored by the LinuxNewProcesses DataSource, Windows processes will be monitored by the WinProcessesStats DataSource and Windows services will be monitored by the Microsoft_Windows_Services DataSource.
Note: Instances will need to be manually added (using Add Monitored Instance) to a resource and applied to the Microsoft_Windows_Services DataSource to get output.
To monitor a UNC share, whether a domain DFS share or otherwise, use the UNC Monitor DataSource. This DataSource will do a directory listing on the given UNC share and report success or failure.
To add a share to be monitored, select a Windows host in the hosts view. The monitoring of the UNC actually occurs on the Collector that monitors this host, but the results can be associated with any Windows host.
For Windows devices, the additional option to monitor UNC Paths is available in the Additional Monitoring settings.
The UNC Monitor DataSource will monitor the accessibility of the UNC path from the collector monitoring this device.
