Deprecated LogicModules

LogicModule changes (including New, Updated, and Deprecated LogicModules) are announced for each LogicMonitor release. See Platform Release Notes.

This table tracks the LogicModules that have been deprecated over the last five releases. If one is available, we will provide a replacement before we officially remove the deprecated LogicModules in a future release.

LogicModule
Deprecated/Replacement
Reason End of Support Date
Deprecated:
Cisco_Wireless_MobileStations
Cisco_Wireless_RogueAccessPoints

Replacement:
N/A
Modules generate an excessive amount of instances for ephemeral devices, in some cases multiple for a single device. These modules are known to cause performance issues and should be deleted or disabled. 2021-07-01
Deprecated:
Juniper_RPM_Tests

Replacement:
Juniper_RPM_ProbeTests
Old module did not produce unique wildvalues, new module uses scripted discovery to produce unique wildvalues by combining test name and owner. It is recommended that the old module be disabled to preserve historical data. 2021-04-22
Deprecated:
CommVault_Job_Status
CommVault_Job_Subclients
CommVault_Job_VMwareSubclients
CommVault_Job_VMwareSubclientVMs

Replacement:
CommVault_Job_Backups
Deprecate modules in favor of single a DataSource for all backup jobs. New DataSource uses pagination which provides significant performance improvements, particularly for large deployments. 2021-04-07
Deprecated:
snmpHRDisk-
snmpHRLargeDisk-

Replacement:
SNMP_Filesystem_Status
SNMP_Filesystem_Usage
Customers wishing to preserve historical data should disable these modules to prevent double collection and alerting. Please update SNMP_Filesystem_Status and SNMP_Filesystem_Usage to at least v1.1 before disabling these modules as alerts were not set in earlier versions. 2021-04-07
Deprecated:
snmpIf-
snmp64_If-

Replacement:
SNMP_Network_Interfaces
(2 DataSources) All the functionality of these now-deprecated DataSources is present in the SNMP_Network_Interfaces DataSource, along with significant enhancements including additional datapoints, scripted data collection for improved performance, instance-level properties that provide for additional filtering capabilities, and more precise alerting to eliminate alert storms caused by the old DataSources. 2021-03-19
Deprecated:
Postfix-
PostfixStatsProcess-

Replacement:
N/A
(2 DataSources) Postfix no longer provides the data requested by the modules. 2021-05-24
Deprecated:
Cisco_vManage_ApplicationAwareRoutingStats

Replacement:
N/A
(DataSource) This DataSource was creating excessive instances, resulting in degraded Collector performance. 2021-05-05
Deprecated:
CiscoASAcpu-
CiscoCPU_old-

Replacement:
Cisco_CPU_Usage
(2 DataSources) Released in v.145, Cisco_CPU_Usage performs the same functions as these deprecated DataSources in a more efficient manner. 2021-03-08
Deprecated:
H3C_System_Fans
H3C_System_ModulePerformance
H3C_System_Power
H3C_System_TemperatureSensors

Replacement:
H3C_Switch_Fans
H3C_Switch_ModulePerformance
H3C_Switch_Power
H3C_Switch_TemperatureSensors
(4 DataSources) The replacement DataSources use scripted Active Discovery to ensure unique instance naming, a known issue with the now-deprecated DataSources. 2021-03-08
Deprecated:
Microsoft_FailoverCluster_Resources

Replacement:
N/A
(DataSource) Development DataSource that was inadvertently published. Immediate
Deprecated:
NetscalerGSLBDomains-

Replacement:
Netscaler_GSLB_Domains
(DataSource) The now-legacy DataSource produced indecipherable instance names. The replacement DataSource remedies this as well as features new overview graphs and datapoint descriptions.. 2021-03-08
Deprecated:
Unomaly Anomalies Frequency Spikes
Unomaly Known Events
Unomaly New Anomalies

Replacement:
New LM Logs feature, released in fourth quarter of 2020.
(3 EventSources) Functionality has been fully replaced by LogicMonitor’s new LM Logs feature. 2021-02-17
Deprecated:
VMware_VeloCloud_SystemStats

Replacement:
N/A
(1 DataSource) It has been determined that all data gathered by this DataSource is being reported more robustly through the existing NetSNMPCPUwithCores and NetSNMP_Memory_Usage DataSources, making it redundant and unnecessary. 2021-02-09
Deprecated:
snmpFreeBSDDisk-

Replacement:
FreeBSD_Filesystem_Usage
(1 deprecated DataSource) Enhancements featured by replacement include an updated AppliesTo statement that includes OpenBSD systems; updated filters to exclude /proc and /dev and allow discovery of files between 0-100 bytes on filesystems; new complex datapoints; and support for drives over 8 TB and block sizes other than 4 K. 2021-01-19
Deprecated:
Windows_Cluster_ResourceState
Windows_Cluster_NodeState
Windows_Cluster_DiskPartitions
WinClusterResources-
WinClusterResourceGroup-
WinClusterNodes-
WinClusterGroupToNode-

Replacement:
Microsoft_FailoverCluster_Resources
Microsoft_Windows_Cluster_NodeStatus
Microsoft_Windows_Cluster_Disks
Microsoft_Windows_Cluster_Resources
Microsoft_Windows_Cluster_ResourceGroups
Microsoft_Windows_Cluster_Nodes
(7 deprecated DataSources) The replacement DataSources apply to the cluster VNN rather than each node individually, significantly reducing the incidence of duplicate alerts.

Note: The six replacement DataSources listed here are part of a bigger monitoring package for Microsoft Windows Failover Clusters that was released in v.146.
2021-01-19
Deprecated:
CiscoCPU-

Replacement:
Cisco_CPU_Usage
(1 DataSource) Converted to a scripted DataSource and uses an additional OID to resolve duplicate wildvalues. 2021-01-04
Deprecated:
Liebert Power lines
Liebert Temperature probes-
Liebert UPS Temperature probes-

Replacement:
Liebert_Power_Lines
Liebert_System_Temperature

Replacement:
LogicMonitor_Portal_Alerts
LogicMonitor_Portal_Collectors
LogicMonitor_Portal_Resources
LogicMonitor_Portal_Users
LogicMonitor_Portal_Websites
(1 DataSource) LogicMonitor released five new DataSources that provide 15 additional datapoints and group related metrics into separate DataSources, making it easier to hone in on specific aspects of your portal. For more information, see LogicMonitor Portal Monitoring. 2021-01-04

F5_BigIP_PoolMemberStatistics

Replacement:
F5_BigIP_PoolMemberStats

Replacement:
Veeam_BackupAndReplication_Jobs_SureBackups
(1 DataSource) “VMware” was removed from the DataSource name as the backups are not VMWare specific. 2020-12-07

Importing LogicModule replacements

When importing a replacement LogicModule, you will not experience any immediate data loss due to the name variation that LogicMonitor expressly adds. However, there will be a diversion in data collection between the deprecated and new LogicModule, and you will potentially collect duplicate data and receive duplicate alerts for as long as both LogicModules are active.

For this reason, we recommend that you disable monitoring of the DataSource instances at the resource or resource group level after you have imported its replacement. When DataSource monitoring is disabled in this way, it stops querying the host and generating alerts, but maintains all historical data.

At some point in time, you may want to delete the legacy DataSource altogether, but consider this move carefully as all historical data will be lost upon deletion. For more information on disabling DataSource monitoring, see Disabling Monitoring for a DataSource or Instance.
