If configuration file monitoring is established for a resource, the config files are viewable as instances within the Resources tree underneath their associated device.
Note: If the ability to monitor and alert on configuration files is not currently available in your LogicMonitor platform and you would like to learn more, reach out to your customer success manager.
Once a ConfigSource is highlighted from the Resources tree, you can view your config versions by opening the Configs tab.
Use the following guide to navigate the config’s changes and alerts displayed in this tab:
Clicking “View” will display your full configuration file.
Selecting the Diff View toggle “ON” will display a side-by-side comparison of your config’s versions. Diff View will default to compare your current config with the version collected immediately prior. However, you can manually select the versions you would like to compare by changing the timestamp field, which shows the timestamps of all your saved config versions.
Changes to the config files are highlight in red, green, or yellow. Red indicates a portion of the config file which was removed in the more recent of the two versions. Green indicates a portion of the config file which was added to the more recent of the two versions. Yellow indicates a portion of the config file that was simply modified.
Embedded in the Config instance-level view is an Alert Tuning tab from which you can view the config file’s relevant ConfigChecks as well as their associated alert routing.
As a best practice, it is recommended that you send test alerts to verify that your ConfigChecks are properly aligned with an Alert Rule and Escalation Chain, thus ensuring that an alert notification is sent to the correct individual(s).
You can do this by selecting the “manage” icon under the “Alert Routing” column and clicking “Send Test Alert.” The Alert Routing window will display all relevant information pertaining to the ConfigCheck’s alert, including Alert Level, Rule, Chain, and alert delivery method broken-down by escalation chain stage.
