LogicMonitor’s out-of-the-box monitoring for Cisco SD-WAN networking architecture leverages the Cisco vManage API to monitor performance and availability metrics for various edge devices across your network. Cisco SD-WAN is also known as Viptela SD-WAN.
As of March 2021, LogicMonitor’s Cisco SD-WAN vManage package is known to be compatible with Cisco SD-WAN vManage API:
As Cisco releases newer versions of SD-WAN vManage API, LogicMonitor will test and extend coverage as necessary.
Add your Cisco SD-WAN vManage host into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
LogicMonitor must provide the appropriate credentials in order to successfully access the Cisco vManage resource’s data. These credentials must belong to a vManage/API user. See Cisco’s vManage REST API documentation for details.
Once credentials have been obtained, the following custom properties must be set on the vManage resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
From the LogicMonitor public repository, import all Cisco SD-WAN LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article. If these LogicModules are already present, ensure you have the most recent versions.
Once the LogicModules are imported (assuming all previous setup requirements have been met), data collection will automatically commence.
The modules in this package are designed with a debug mode embedded in the scripts. If issues occur, turn on debug mode in the script by setting the variable debug to “true” to get more information in the output when testing the script in the Collector Debug Facility. For more information on testing scripts in the Collector Debug Facility, see Script Troubleshooting.
LogicMonitor’s package for Cisco SD-WAN consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
The DataSources in this package do not include predefined datapoint thresholds (that is, no alerts will trigger based on collected data). This is because the technology owner has not provided KPIs that can be reliably extended to the majority of users. If you’d like to receive alerts for collected data, you’ll need to manually create custom thresholds, as discussed in Tuning Static Thresholds for Datapoints.
