Navigating the Resources Page (New UI)

Overview

All monitored devices and cloud resources are managed from the Resources page . If you haven’t added any devices to your account, see Adding Devices.

Resources Tree

Resources are displayed in a pane, or tree, on the left side of the Resources page. The Resources tree has three views, represented by tabs:

  • Resources: The device view, which carries the bulk of the functionality.
  • Favorites: Allows you to customize a list of your most frequently viewed devices, cloud resources, device groups, instances, DataSources, and other LogicModules in one view.
  • Services: Logical groupings of instances across one or more monitored resources.

Resources

Use the Resources tab to search, navigate, and identify relationships between the resources in your LogicMonitor account.

Resource Types

An icon is displayed to the left of each resource to help identify the resource type (device, cloud resource, group, dynamic group, instance, or DataSource). Hover over any icon in the Resources tree to display its description.

Alert Severities

The Resources tree provides an overview of your environment’s health. An alert severity icon is displayed when an active alert is present for that resource or its children.

Navigating Resources

Expanding and Viewing Resources

To view and expand resources in the Resources tree:

IconDescription
Click the resource icon to expand or collapse that level (folder).
Click the resource name to expand or collapse that level (folder) and to open the resource in the Details Panel.
Click the alert severity icon to view the alert for that resource in the Details Panel.

Using Breadcrumbs

You can navigate by using the breadcrumbs available at the top of the LogicMonitor window. 

Focusing on a Single Resource

Click the focus icon, which appears when you hover over any group, device, or cloud resource, to focus the tree at the active level.

Click the focus icon again to return to the root level.

Adjusting the Tree Width

You can drag the right border of the Resources tree to widen or narrow the view. Widths between 300 and 1000 pixels are supported.

Hide or Show the Resources Tree

To hide the Resources tree, click the Hide Panel arrow.

To unhide, click Open Panel.

Drag and Drop

You can drag-and-drop any device or group to change its group membership:

  • Dragging a device to a group will add the device to that group.
  • Dragging a group to a group will add the group as a sub-group.
  • Dragging a device to a device will create a new group with the two devices.

Note: This functionality is not available for dynamic groups as dynamic group membership is automated and cannot be manually determined. For more information on device groups, see Device Groups Overview.

Searching Resources

Use the Search Tree field to search for resources by keyword.

Using Search Categories

You can narrow your search by specifying a category for each keyword. The following search categories are available:

  • g: To search Group names for a keyword match.
  • d:  To search Device and Cloud resource names for a keyword match.
  • ds:  To search DataSource names for a keyword match.
  • i:  To search Instance names for a keyword match.

If you specify two or more keywords for the same category, the criteria will logically be interpreted with an OR. For example,  g:DEV g:AWS  will return device groups containing DEV or AWS in their names. If you specify two or more keywords for different categories, the criteria will logically be interpreted with an AND. For example,  g:AWS ds:EBS will return DataSources that contain EBS in their names and are members of groups that contain AWS in their names.

Selecting an item from search results will update your detail view, but will not change the focus of your Resources tree. To update the tree, you can either click the focus icon or select the breadcrumb in the detail panel. This allows you to keep search results active and displayed until you find what you’re looking for.

Filtering Resources by Alert Severity

You can filter Resources by selecting one or more of the alert severity type icons located on the Resources tab.

Sorting Resources

 Use the Sort drop-down list to sort Alphabetical A-Z, Alphabetical Z-A, or By Alert Severity.

Filters are applied to the active view of the Resources tree. It will limit the current view of the tree; it will not return all resources that match the filter criteria. For example, if your Resources Tree is currently focused on a single device group, only resources from that current group that match the filter will appear.

Unmonitored Resources

Click Unmonitored Resources to view any resources that have been added, but are not currently being monitored.

Recently Deleted Items

Any deleted Resources appear in Recently Deleted Items. After seven days, the Resource is permanently deleted.

Detail Panel

The Resources page’s detail panel provides additional details and functionality for the resource that is selected in the Resources tree. 

Detail Panel Tabs

The detail panel displays a series of tabs for the selected resource. The tabs available for a resource vary depending upon the type of resource, although there is considerable overlap among resources. For an in-depth explanation of that tab’s functionality, visit its dedicated support article.

  • Info— Display properties and group membership data for resources.
  • SDT— View and configure scheduled down time for various types of resources.
  • Alerts— Filtered view of the Alerts page, displaying alerts only for the selected resource.
  • Graphs— View graphs and created curated views of graphs for DataSource instances.
  • Alert Tuning— View and manage datapoint thresholds at the device group, DataSource, and instance level.
  • Cluster Alert Tuning— View and manage cluster alerts (alerts based on the overall state of devices in a device group).
  • Inventory— List of resources in the selected folder. Select a resource in the Inventory list to display the Actions menu.
  • Maps— View a visual representation of the selected resource.
  • Traffic— View the network traffic flow for the selected resource.
  • Instances tab— View and manage settings for instances contained by a multi-instance DataSource or instance group.
  • Raw Data tab— Display all data collected for an instance.

To the right of the available tabs found in the detail panel, you may find up to two toggle switches that allow for the disabling of alerting or monitoring for a particular resource. For more information on this functionality, see  Disabling Alerting  and  Disabling Monitoring for a DataSource or Instance respectively.

Detail Panel Functions

Depending on the Resource that’s selected, there are function buttons present on the Detail Panel.

Groups and Hosts

For Groups and Hosts, the following functions are present on the Detail Panel:

IconNameDescription
Add to FavoritesAdds the selected resource to the Favorites tab.

Favorites

The Favorites tab in the Resources Tree is used to manage the resources that you use frequently.

Add to Favorites

Favorites are added from the Details Panel. To add a favorite resource, click Add to Favorites (heart icon), located in the detail panel’s toolbar. The resource will appear in the Favorites tab.

Services

Use the Services tab to view logical groupings of instances across one or more monitored resources (devices). Services are part of LogicMonitor’s premium, add-on LM Service Insight feature. LM Service Insight enables you to aggregate service-level indicators across various instances to obtain, monitor, visualize, and alert on service-level data. Service-level monitoring and alerting is useful when the health of overall services is a higher priority than the health of individual monitored devices. For example, you could use LM Service Insight to monitor an application running across many containers, where an individual, ephemeral, containerized application instance is not necessarily indicative of overall application performance. For more information on LM Service Insight, see About LM Service Insight.
