v.166 Release Notes

Due to a delay, LogicMonitor v.166 is now scheduled to roll out to customer portals from March 2 through March 14.

Highlights

Feature Highlights

Updated Topology Mappings Interface

The Topology Mappings interface has been updated and is now enabled by default.

Kubernetes Cluster Monitoring with Kube State Metrics

You can now use the Kube State Metrics modules available in LM Exchange in conjunction with the new Argus and Collector Helm charts to gain better visibility of your Kubernetes cluster. The charts automatically install and configure KSM on your cluster and monitor the following resources:

  • Daemonsets
  • Replicasets
  • Statefulsets
  • PersistentVolumes

General Updates

LM Logs

Enhancements

  • The total number of results now displays in the Aggregate tab when performing an advanced search query.
  • You can now view surrounding logs for a device or device group. To view this feature, select the three dot icon in the device or device group log row and select View +/- 1 minute.

LM Cloud

Enhancements

  • Added support for the eu-south-1 AWS region.
  • Added support for the us-west-3 Azure region.
  • Added support for monitoring GCP Interconnect Attachments. Metrics include ingress and egress for both bytes and packets, as well as network capacity.
  • Azure NetApp Pools can now be discovered and monitored in LogicMonitor. New DataSources for this feature will be available after 3/10/22.
  • You can now set NodeSelector and Tolerations properties on the Kubernetes Collector Set service.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that occasionally prevented the Cloud Integrations page from displaying correctly.
  • Fixed an issue that caused dead pods to incorrectly report to dashboards.
  • Fixed an issue that caused inconsistent values to be propagated in the Host Name property of a pod.

Tracing

Enhancements

  • The OpenTelemetry Collector can now run in Azure Container instances. You may find this useful for forwarding application traces from Azure Container environments.
  • You can now use the new Validate button for an OpenTelemetry Collector to validate that the configuration file is acceptable. This ensures that changes made to the Collector configuration in LogicMonitor are formatted properly.

Alerts

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Clear notification from being sent for suppressed alerts.

User Interface

Enhancements

  • You can now specify alert trigger intervals for config checks. For more information, see Config Checks.

Dashboards

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that occasionally prevented forecasting from a top 10 Graph widget.

NetScan

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented NetScan credentials from being obfuscated in API responses.

Deprecated/Replacement
DetailsEnd of Support Date
Deprecated: VMware_vCenter_Topology

Replacement: 
VMware_vCenter_*_Topology
Branched out into four separate modules to better serve specific aspects of vCenter.
