Virtual Machine Monitoring

LogicMonitor provides in-depth, agentless monitoring of your entire virtualization stack in a snap – whether your VMs are in public or private clouds or in your own data centers. Automatic discovery of virtual machines, hypervisors, and hosts – requiring no manual configuration or additional hardware – provides in-depth analysis and visualization within minutes.

End-to-end monitoring for your virtualized infrastructure

Virtualization provides server consolidation and improved utilization of your compute resources. Without monitoring the details of your virtualized infrastructure, it’s difficult to know if your virtualization strategy is leaving resources unused or overtaxed. LogicMonitor removes the guesswork by automating the monitoring of your entire virtualization stack.

Improve VMWare performance and service health

LogicMonitor provides comprehensive monitoring of VMware vCenter, VCSA, ESXi, Horizon, and more. Our agentless collectors go beyond baseline performance monitoring to map the dependencies of your VMs, the applications running on them, and the backend infrastructure your VMware services rely on. Intelligent thresholds built on machine learning warn you of impending issues affecting your virtual machines and provide recommendations to improve performance and meet your SLAs.

This dashboard provides an a listing of various metrics that are monitored for Microsoft Hyper-V The metrics displayed are real-time CPU utilization, real-time memory utilization, real-time storage utilization, status, CPU utilization over time, memory utilization over time, storage utilization over time

Maintain and optimize your hypervisors for flawless deployments

The hypervisor is the core of Hyper-V; understanding the interplay of physical and logical processors, memory usage, and pressure is critical to managing resource utilization. LogicMonitor provides comprehensive visibility into Hyper-V, whether deployed on-prem or cloud, with pre-defined alerts and root cause analysis to help you alleviate issues quickly.

Easily monitor hyper-converged infrastructure

LogicMonitor’s Active Discovery continually looks for new virtual machines on your Nutanix hypervisor host. LogicMonitor discovers any new instances in minutes with no additional configuration required. Instantly survey CPU, memory utilization, storage IOPS/latency, and network throughput performance of top VMs quickly identify outliers and potential misconfigurations.

Keep supporting services running like clockwork

Whether you are running Cisco HyperFlex, Viptela, or any other SD-WAN technology, LogicMonitor ensures that all the pieces of your virtual environment work together seamlessly. AI-driven dynamic thresholds help your team quickly troubleshoot any anomalous network or hypervisor activities that fall out of the expected range.


Mission-critical VM Monitoring Metrics

Easily monitor and improve Virtual Machine performance within a single system. Whether your resources are hosted on-premises, in the cloud, or in multiple geographic regions or data centers, LogicMonitor provides a single pane of glass view for all the metrics that matter.

  • Visualize and share critical metrics in user-friendly, drag-and-drop dashboards with a range of widget styles
  • Correlate critical VM metrics to other aspects of your infrastructure, including networks, storage, and log data, to rapidly perform root cause analysis that will improve MTTR
  • Get real-time alerts to optimize resource utilization and prevent capacity issues across storage, memory, and CPU
  • Prevent alert storms with intelligent thresholds, SLA monitoring, and escalation chains tuned for your environment

Prepare for maximum VM efficiency

The continuous growth and usage of VMs can negatively affect application performance and server operating times. The result? Wasted time, money, and resources. Using LogicMonitor’s out-of-the-box under and over-utilized resource dashboards, you can:

  • Right size your virtual machine infrastructure in-real time to reduce excess capacity and save money
  • Quickly identify the virtual machine resources taxing performance and causing issues in your environment
  • Automatically prevent service-impacting problems with automated monitoring and AI-based alert thresholds

Virtual Machine monitoring that anticipates outages

Not all heroes wear capes. With powerful built-in AI features built-in, keeping your virtualized infrastructure optimized and available has never been easier. Detect issues sooner with dynamic thresholds, reduce MTTR with root cause analysis, proactively prevent issues, and plan future resource allocation with automated forecasting. Because it’s not just the technology underneath, but what we do with it that matters.

  • Dynamically generate topology maps that show how VM data flows among complex resources
  • See alerts within your other infrastructure to streamline troubleshooting and reduce MTTR
  • Pinpoint anomalies that occur for a monitored resource and compare that anomaly to key historical signals

Simple Effective Event Log and Resource Monitoring/Alerting tool

LogicMonitor is used by our organization to actively monitor servers and cloud infrastructure for both events and resource utilization. Our main objective is to use the tool to detect and alert IT staff of anomalies or other potential downtime that could impact our customers and employees. LogicMonitor is currently deployed to key infrastructures such as VM hosts, domain controllers, critical servers, and Azure resources such as VMs, Frontdoor, Kubernetes, etc.

Using LogicMonitor as a Non-MSP

LogicMonitor’s licensing is per device instead of SolarWinds per interface. This means a switch only needs one license compared to SolarWinds licensing per port on the switch. SolarWind’s GUI is old and not very intuitive to new users. Setting up users in LogicMonitor is super easy and the use of roles makes managing permissions simple.
