v.163 Release Notes

Published on 12.20.21

Updated on December 28, 2021

  • Push Metrics enhancement: Percentile aggregation added for sub-minute data submission. Percentile aggregation can now be performed on multiple values to return the value which is greater than the specified percentage.
    For example, the 95th percentile is the value which is greater than 95% of the observed values. Percentiles can be used to find outliers for alerts that can be generated within LogicMonitor for values that are outside the norm or above/below a specified threshold.

LogicMonitor v.163 is scheduled to roll out to customer portals from December 27 through January 10.

Highlights

  • General Updates: Improved the user experience in the Logs detail panel, added an upgrade button for Autotask URLs, and more.
  • Updated Monitoring: Added new LogicModules for SilverPeak devices using the Orchestrator REST API, added support for HTTPS for device properties, and more.
