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. If a replacement is available, we will provide it before we officially remove the deprecated LogicModules in a future release.

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.
