Rubrik Monitoring

Overview

LogicMonitor offers an out-of-the-box monitoring suite for the Rubrik storage system platform. This suite uses Rubrik’s API to query the Rubrik cluster host for health and performance metrics.

Compatibility

As of February 2021, LogicMonitor’s Rubrik package is known to be compatible with:

As Rubrik releases newer versions of their API, LogicMonitor will test and extend coverage as necessary.

Setup Requirements

The following steps are required to set up Rubrik Monitoring in your LogicMonitor environment.

Add Resources into monitoring

Add your Rubrik cluster hosts into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.

Assign properties to Resources

The following custom properties must be set on the Rubrik resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.

Property Value
rubrik.user Rubrik REST API username.
rubrik.pass Rubrik REST API password.
system.category This value, “Rubrik”, will be added automatically by the addCategory_Rubrik PropertySource.

Import LogicModules

Import all Rubrik LogicModules from the LogicMonitor public repository. See the list of LogicModules in Package. If these LogicModules are already present, make sure you have the most recent versions.

Assuming all previous setup requirements have been met, data collection will automatically start once the LogicModules are imported.​

Troubleshooting

The modules in this package are designed with a debug mode embedded in the active discovery and data collection scripts. If issues occur, turn on debug mode 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.

When setting static datapoint thresholds on the various metrics tracked by the DataSources in this package, LogicMonitor follows the Rubrik’s best practice KPI recommendations. If necessary, we encourage you to adjust these predefined thresholds to meet the unique needs of your environment. For more information on tuning datapoint thresholds, see Tuning Static Thresholds for Datapoints.
