Feature Highlights

GD Collector 30.001 released

GD Collector 30.001 was released on August 23 and includes fixes for updating Collectors and MongoDB driver dependencies. This is Collector is a candidate for the next MGD release. See the Collector Release Notes.

General Updates

Alerting

  • CHANGE Users can now Add to dashboard from the alerts details panel for anomaly alerts when logs are enabled.
  • CHANGE Dynamic threshold limits have been removed and users can apply them to as many datapoints as needed. Warnings for exceeding a dynamic threshold limit no longer display in the warnings shown at login or on the Account Information page in Settings.
  • FIX The new page prevented a Scheduled Down Time (SDT) start time from being set in the past. You are now able to set a SDT start time in the past that ends any time in the future.
  • FIX The Severity sort order is now correct when sorting Alerts page results by Reported At followed by Severity.
  • FIX Refreshing the Alerts page while you are editing notes in the alert details panel should not clear the note.
  • FIX The relative timestamp in the alert details panel now updates correctly when switching between alerts.
  • FIX Custom time ranges now convert and display correctly when switching between Alerts (Legacy) to Alerts (Stable).

Cloud and SaaS Monitoring

  • FIX Properties now display correctly for SaaS Lite (status monitoring).
  • FIX You can now successfully import Zoom Plan Usage DataSources. You may need to reimport the LogicModules via the Exchange or Repository.
  • FIX The “Manage LogicModules” permission was required to add cloud accounts for the new Cloud Integrations UI. Users with manage permission for at least one resource group can navigate to Exchange > Cloud Integrations and be able to add a cloud account for monitoring.

Distributed Tracing

  • CHANGE The default time range is set to 1 minute on the Traces page. Time range options for 10 minutes and 3 hours have been removed.
  • NEW As an optional way to simplify resource reconciliation with Argus, we added the ability to use OR operators on pods with different labels when mapping resources on the Kubernetes side.

LM Exchange

  • FIX DataSource updates were not working when imported from the LogicMonitor Repository because of a mismatched sorting of list items.

LM Logs

  • CHANGE Moved the toggle for Ops notes from the graph to the options menu.
  • CHANGE Backend improvements on event parsing to increase profile performance and improve memory allocation.
  • NEW Added the ability to expand log message in a row to view the entire log message.

LogicModules

  • FIX The Devices associated with DataSource page no longer reorders the devices when you are paging through the list.

Reporting

  • FIX The Resource Group Inventory and Alert reports now correctly displays the system.netflowCollectorId when NetFlow is enabled on devices (that is, system.enablenetflow is true).

REST API

  • A new version of the LogicMonitor REST API documentation for Go and Python SDKs is now available and includes the following updates:

addCollectorGroup, updateCollectorGroupById:

  • autoBalance, boolean: Specify if the Collector part of an Auto Balanced Collector Group (ABCG).
  • autoBalanceStrategy, string:  Specify the auto balance strategy.
  • autoBalanceInstanceCountThreshold, integer: Specify the threshold for instance count strategy to check if a Collector has high load.

addDevice, updateDevice:

  • autoBalancedCollectorGroupId, integer (int32): The Auto Balanced Collector Group id. If set to 0, means the Collector Group is not monitored by ABCG.

See LogicMonitor REST API documentation and download the SDK files from LogicMonitor SDKs.

User Interface

  • FIX The Custom Graph widget now correctly plots the y-axis with the full range assigned in the max graph range.
  • FIX Unchecking ACK and SDT Alert Totals now correctly removes the alert counts from the main navigation sidebar.

Looking Ahead

In this section, you will find announcements about upcoming beta features, updates about ongoing beta features, and information about the end-of-life of existing features.

Settings for ERI and ERT will be disabled for PropertySources in v.159

We are removing the ability to set External Resource IDs (ERIs) and External Resource Types (ERTs) from non-ERISource PropertySources in the UI. The recommended way for you to set the ERI and ERT property is via PropertySource scripting, which supports blacklisting and namespacing. See Creating PropertySources.

MGD Collector 30.001 will be deployed on October 27

On October 27th, between 6 and 9 p.m. PT, all Collectors in your LogicMonitor platform below version GD 30.001 will be automatically updated to this new minimum version. At this time, we will also officially deprecate and stop supporting the previous minimum general deployment of MGD 28.005. More details about this update will follow.

Although we strongly encourage you to upgrade your Collectors on your own schedule, we do not believe you will experience any issues by waiting for the auto-upgrade on October 27th. For instructions on upgrading your Collectors, see Managing Collectors.
