The Auto-Balanced Collector Groups Update Set for LogicMonitor’s ServiceNow CMDB Integration application makes it possible for you to provision devices to Auto-Balanced Collector Groups (ABCGs). Without this Update Set, a device can only be provisioned to a single, static Collector.
As discussed in Auto-Balanced Collector Groups, an ABCG is a group of Collectors that share device load. ABCGs bring more efficient Collector management and monitoring through auto-balancing of device load, improved scalability, and streamlined device creation.
This Update Set requires the 1.1.3 version or later of the LogicMonitor ServiceNow CMDB Integration application. If you haven’t updated your installed version of the application, you must do so prior to installing this Update Set.
Prior to using the features of this Update Set, you should have ABCGs configured in your LogicMonitor portal. For more information on configuring ABCGs, see Auto Balanced Collector Groups.
To manually provision devices to ABCGs, navigate to the “Provision Devices to ABCG” module and use the displayed form to select the ABCG to which you are provisioning device(s), as well as the device(s) you want to provision.
A new field titled LM Auto Balanced Collector Group ID is added with the Update Set. If this field’s value is set to 0 (or empty) at the time the CI is provisioned, the device will be created using the original Collector association method. If there is a value in that field, device creation is attempted using that value as the autoBalancedCollectorGroupId value in the create payload.
If you are looking to automate the creation of LogicMonitor devices and assignment to ABCGs, write the desired ABCG value to x_lomo_lmcmdbint_lm_abcg_id before changing the LogicMonitor Enable field to true.
