LogicMonitor's SwiftStack monitoring package leverages the SwiftStack Controller API to monitor a large number of storage utilization, CPU, load, and performance metrics.
Add your SwiftStack resource 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 SwiftStack resource. These credentials must belong to a SwiftStack user account that has been assigned the following permissions:
The following custom properties must be set on the SwiftStack resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
In July of 2020, LogicMonitor released several new SwiftStack DataSources. The new DataSources contained optimizations and updates that required significant refactoring, resulting in the deprecation of the following five legacy DataSources.
If you are currently using any of these legacy DataSources, you will not experience data loss upon importing the new DataSources. This is because DataSource names have been changed to eliminate module overwriting.
However, you will collect duplicate data and receive duplicate alerts for as long as both sets of DataSources are active. For this reason, we recommend that you disable the above-listed DataSources after importing the new set of DataSources and confirming that they are working as intended in your environment.
When a DataSource is disabled, 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 DataSources altogether, but consider this move carefully as all historical data will be lost upon deletion. For more information on disabling DataSources, see Disabling Monitoring for a DataSource or Instance.
LogicMonitor's package for SwiftStack 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.
