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

LogicMonitor removes the guesswork from your VM strategy by automating the monitoring of your entire virtualization stack. Monitor all your virtual machines in a single pane of glass, even if you’re monitoring thousands of clusters in multiple data centers across the globe.

Improve VMWare performance and service health

LogicMonitor provides comprehensive monitoring of VMware vCenter, vSphere, 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.

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 cost savings

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 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

Hybrid-cloud ready

Whether you’re running virtual machines in data centers, fully in the cloud, or a mix of both, LogicMonitor has you covered. Thinking about cloud migration? LogicMonitor’s approach will give you unparalleled visibility into all your virtual machines, no matter where they reside. With LogicMonitor, you can control all of your virtual machines from anywhere, including:

  • Data centers
  • Public cloud
  • Private cloud
Let LogicMonitor help you understand and optimize your GCP cloud services so that you can focus on the important aspects of running your business.

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.

A game changer for a company!

LogicMonitor is being used in Zwift to monitor all our network assets, meeting room appliances and all our SaaS.The idea is to change from a reactive support model to a pro-active support model. In order to archive this, we use all the function the software offers: custom alerts, SNMP monitoring, Windows log monitoring and so far the results are amazing: our response time to our internal customers are increasing. We plan to leverage more the usage among the next year.

LogicMonitor has been a homerun!

More recently, we’ve been able to pull in data from other sources, O365, our phone system, Azure, etc… to build IT Operations dashboards that give us insights in one place rather than multiple different admin centers across all these products.

Garth M MS Engineer, Infrastructure Managed Services at NTT

“The built-in alerts are fantastic! Other solutions I’ve used typically collect the data. Then I go in manually and create alerts. With LogicMonitor, I have hundreds of built-in, pre-configured alerts ready to go with the ability to tune a single object, a group, or the entire organization.”
