Feature Highlights

LogicMonitor APM Lighthouse Program

LogicMonitor APM has been available in a limited release capacity for the past few months. We are now ready to expand access with the launch of our Lighthouse Program for users that want access to our APM capabilities. 

Along with early access, qualified customers and prospects will have the opportunity to influence the early direction of our product and provide feedback to enhance our APM offering. 
If you are interested in participating in our Lighthouse Program, please fill out the Google form here.

Kubernetes Monitoring Enhancement Beta

This beta enables API keys to allow non-admin users to add Kubernetes clusters into monitoring. For more information, see Adding Kubernetes Cluster into Monitoring as Non-Admin User or contact your Customer Success Manager.

Log Alert Pipeline Enhancement

Resource groups can now be used in log alert pipelines. Using Resource groups when defining a log pipeline makes it easier to dynamically apply alert conditions to specific groups of resources, ensuring alerts are generated when expected.

Veeam Backup & Replication Monitoring Enhancement

Support for Veeam 11 is now available. LogicModule changes include updates to script comments and graph fixes. See the Updated LogicModules section for additional details.

For more information, see Veeam Backup and Replication Monitoring.

General Updates

Alerts

Bug Fixes

  • The Alerts page now correctly indicates when no alerts meet the filter criteria.
  • Fixed an issue that caused multiple SDTs to be created for a single source when performing a bulk action.
  • Fixed an issue that incorrectly caused the Escalate button to be active when no escalation chain was set for an alert.

LM Collector

Enhancements

  • Relay Server v2.2.3 is now available.
  • Rate limit headers are now available on PATCH requests.

LM APM

Enhancements

  • Added the ability to set environment variables for an OpenTelemetry Collector using an external configuration file.
  • Added the ability to create an OpenTelemetry Collector with a custom Kubernetes configuration.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that allowed users to modify or restart an OpenTelemetry Collector when the Collector was in a stopped state.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the default OpenTelemetry Collector configuration to still be used after a user had updated the configuration file.

Cloud Monitoring

Enhancements

  • Users no longer need “Manage” permissions for LogicModules to add cloud accounts. The user only needs “Manage” permissions for the resource group they want to add a cloud account to.
  • Added a new AD method for discovering Azure dimension values. This is useful for allowing LogicMonitor to dynamically discover dimension values and monitor metrics for each without having to manually enter each dimension. For more information, see Customizing Azure Monitor DataSources.
  • Office365 integrations can now be added by users without full data collection permissions.
  • The legacy UI option for adding and managing cloud accounts has been removed.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Test Permissions button to incorrectly return all resource types when adding a virtual machine to a local Collector.
  • When managing a cloud account virtual machine Collector assignment, the correct results are now displayed in the Included tab when writing a custom AppliesTo function.

Reporting

Bug Fix

  • Fixed an issue that caused a mismatch between the SLA report and the SLA dashboard widget.

User Interface

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused LogicMonitor to become unresponsive when adding multiple DataSource instances simultaneously.
  • Fixed an issue that caused UI slowness in large environments.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented some users from adding new Service groups.
  • Fixed an issue that caused inconsistent results to display in the Big Number and Pie Chart widgets when the resource count is selected in a datapoint using AppliesTo scripting.
  • Fixed an issue that caused incorrect details to display in audit logs when custom properties were updated for a resource using API v1.

LM Exchange

Enhancement

  • Changed the Update from Repository setting to check the schema version rather than the portal version. This allows updates between accounts, as long as the schemas are the same.

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.

MGD Collector 30.001 will be deployed on October 27

The general deployment GD Collector 30.001 has been designated as the next minimum general deployment version, MGD Collector 30.001.

On October 27th, between 6 PM and 9 PM PDT, all Collectors in your LogicMonitor environment below GD Collector 30.001 will be automatically updated to GD Collector 30.001. At this time, we will stop supporting the previous version, MGD Collector 28.005.

No action is required for this update. Although we encourage you to upgrade your outdated Collectors on your own schedule, we do not believe you will experience any issues by waiting for the automatic upgrade on October 27th. For instructions on upgrading your Collectors, see Managing Collectors.

For more information, see the MGD Collector 30.001 release notes.
