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 often adds, updates and improves LogicModules – both as the LogicMonitor product gains capabilities (for example, the addition of MongoDB monitoring) and as we incorporate feedback from customers into our best-practices alerts.
We do not automatically push out new versions of LogicModules to customer’s accounts, because customers often modify and tune their LogicModules. There is also a risk of certain LogicModule updates removing historical data (see below information).
Thus, importing new LogicModules must be explicitly triggered. To do so, navigate to Settings | LogicModules and click on the desired LogicModule. From there, select Add | From LogicMonitor Repository. Accept (click save) the default credentials to access the repository. You should see a dialog like this:
It is generally safe to accept any New LogicModules into your account (you can sort by the Status column) – however, this may result in new monitoring, and thus possibly new alerts – for some systems.
For LogicModules with a status of Show Diff, clicking the Show Diff link will show the difference between the core LogicModule and the one in your account:
From the Show Diff page, you can then perform one of three actions:
Warning: there are cases where historical data can be lost when importing an updated LogicModule.
Cases where data will be lost include:
Please contact support if you wish to discuss which updates are significant to apply, and how.
Warning: updating a LogicModule will overwrite any custom changes that you may have made to the LogicModule template. This includes any added or removed datapoints, revised thresholds, changes to graphs, polling intervals, etc. However, custom alert thresholds that are set on the device or device group level are not removed.
