2. Environmental Sensor Suggestions?

I'm having difficulty looking for a replacement of NetBotz to monitor all DCs/IDFs and fully supported by LM. Does anyone have recommendations? I'm guessing we want two tiers of monitoring: some with cameras and detailed sensors, the rest with just temperature sensing in random closets. NetBotz run a big expensive, but if they are the best choice I'm ready to make the case. I've heard good things about ITWatchDog, but can't find anything the DataSources for them.

@Kerry DeVilbiss Are the above Infoblox datasources available to be added to our account also?

10. Allow Logarithmic scaling of graphs

While I agree this would be a great built in function, you could technically implement this right now with a virtual datapoint… https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19472747/convert-linear-scale-to-logarithmic

mnagel… would you mind if I took a peek at your powershell? Second set of eyes and all that.
14. Ruckus Virtual SmartZone

@Hayden if you go through support they can get this to the monitoring team. Being beta, you may see a longer turnaround time for response from the dev team. You're sure you've got SNMP enabled on your Ruckus, and it's properly configured in LM for your Ruckus resource? You can also do some snmpwalks on the device from the debug window to see if it's responding at all.

Reviewed. You weren't kidding about simple code.
16. Allow Logarithmic scaling of graphs

@Mosh How are you exporting though?

If you don't want to change the event timing itself, you can add a blank line to the Escalation chain... it will use the escalation interval on that blank step which will add time. We use this for Services restarting that take a long time. We need to know that they've restarted, but also need to know if they don't finish restarting. So we have an escalation chain just for the service alerts that alert our team, then waits 20 more minutes before alerting us again. If you add a blank to the end of the escalation chain, you can stop repeated messaging as well. Works especially well if you are using a ticketing system that only accepts email as an incoming connector.
18. Datasource to poll for number of files in a UNC path?

You can do this fairly easily with a powershell: $path = '\\##system.displayname##\path\to\count' (get-childitem$path).count If you need different paths / system, you'll have to provide a hash table of those relationships somewhere. Either as a text file on a server accessible from the Collector, the collector itself, or hardcoded into the DataSource. It will need to come in as a "Gauge" value rather than a counter.
19. Option to alert only if all steps for a website monitor fail

Please make it so that when configuring a website monitor that has multiple Steps, we can set it so that it only alerts if all steps fail. In other words, if any one of the steps passes, then everything is still okay. For example, I have a primary URL for an API endpoint, and a secondary URL. As long as either is available I don't need an alert. Only if both steps fail, then I want an alert.
20. Ability to "lock" a group to parent to prevent drag & drop

Please make the "Are you sure?" an option that can be disabled in Settings. For us non-MSP enterprise customers that extra mouse click would be a frustration. I like the idea of locking groups as this means we can turn off the confirmation prompt, and know that important service groups are locked from accidental drag and drop.
21. Swagger Doc help adding a customProperty to a device

Thank you. The part I found confusing mostly was the example code given... it is just a generic, blank JSON block. Had that had more detail, I'd have been able to figure it out more quickly. When I've done documentation for Functions and Objects in the past, I've always made sure to include expected input and output... not just types, but structural so that anyone can drop in on my code and be able to produce results immediately. Most of what I've done in the past has been internal tooling, so I saw it as cost savings for the company I was working for due to reduced dev time. I don't tend to see that level of documentation for APIs elsewhere. All of MS's dev docs miss this as well. I've commented on it and they've stated that it was a common complaint. Their new documentation is much clearer, but most of their offerings are still the old documentation style; just giving the function names and leaving it to the developer to parse their meaning/usage.
22. Datasource to poll for number of files in a UNC path?

I am looking to poll ~20 UNC paths for to count the total number of files respectively and display in a simple graph widget. Is this something LM can do natively?
23. Cisco Firepower data source

Our Monitoring team released Cisco Firepower DataSources (+ PropertySource) to the core repository last night - check your portals for the download! Cheers, Kerry

@Cole McDonald @Joe Tran we will improve the documentation for this endpoint - thanks!
