We recommend that you start with this article for an overview of how LogicMonitor works and then follow the link in the ‘Next steps’ section to move to the next article in the Getting Started Guide. If you prefer to learn via webinar tutorials, consider viewing our Product Overview 101 training video as well as our full library of webinars in the LogicMonitor Academy.
LogicMonitor is an agentless solution that does not require that you install something on each resource within your infrastructure. Simply install a LogicMonitor Collector, a 100MB Java application, in each location of your infrastructure. The Collector will then monitor the resources within your infrastructure using standard monitoring protocols.
LogicMonitor is a cloud based monitoring solution. All of the data collected by your LogicMonitor Collector is consolidated in a LogicMonitor datacenter, and this data is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Hybrid Monitoring Solution
LogicMonitor is a hybrid monitoring solution—it can monitor every aspect of your infrastructure, no matter how dispersed or complex it is, whether it’s on premise, in a CoLocation, in the cloud, or any combination of these. We don’t charge per Collector—you can install as many as you need.
Start by logging into your account, or if you’ve already done that you can jump straight to installing a Collector in your infrastructure.
