LogicMonitor offers out-of-the-box monitoring for Ubiquiti UniFi Network controllers. Our monitoring package uses the Ubiquiti UniFi Network API to query the UniFi Network controller for a variety of performance metrics, including temperature, memory, CPU usage, load averages on security gateways, wired and wireless traffic overviews, site throughput metrics, and individual access point metrics such as overall throughput, error, and packet count monitoring.
Add Resource into Monitoring
Add your Ubiquiti UniFi Network host into monitoring. Set a unifi.user and unifi.pass property for the resource that has adequate access permissions to your UniFi Network controller’s API. For more information about adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
From the LogicMonitor repository, import all Ubiquiti UniFi Network modules listed in the LogicModules in Package section below. 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), the suite of Ubiquiti Unifi Network modules will automatically begin collecting data.
- This suite was designed for monitoring on-prem controllers configured as UniFi Network systems directly.
LogicModules in Package
LogicMonitor’s package for Ubiquiti UniFi Network monitoring consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.

When setting static datapoint thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package’s DataSources, LogicMonitor follows the technology owner’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.
