    ability for alert to trigger a script to be ran

    Hi Allen,rnI think we already provide this type of capability. Please correct me if Im wrong, but couldnt you set up External Alerting a bit like this integration with PagerDuty to do this?rn rnLet me know?rnMichael

    Services alerts based upon ping response times

    You are right, in the Ping Service, there is no response time setting, nor a way to set alerting based on ping drop or individual ping response. rnThere is a response time setting on the Web Service Monitor, but I certainly see your point.rnIll send this around internally and see if there are plans around expanding this coverage.rn rnThanks,rnMichael
  3. I will fix that verbiage immediately.
  4. I\'m posing this question to myself and answering it here, as I want a record of the information. Most of this information can be found in this PDF. In case the PDF goes away, I have reproduced most of it below, minus some of the screenshots. Navisphere® CLI or NaviCLI is provided by EMC and used to manage their data storage systems. Download the NaviCLI installer from the EMC web-site: https://powerlink.emc.com. You must have an account with EMC to login and download the software. If you have not registered on the EMC site, click the appropriate link under Create a New Account. Navigate to the Home > Support > Software Downloads and Licensing > Downloads J-O > Navisphere Server Software. On the Navisphere Server Software page, click on Show All Documents at the top right of the results pane. Select and download the appropriate management pack for your collector computer -- Windows or Linux.If you are not downloading directly to your collector computer, transfer the binary to your collector and then install the software package.Install the package to the default location. For windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\EMC\Navisphere CLI\. For *nix: /opt/Navisphere/bin During installation of the package, select Low for verification level.In your LogicMonitor portal, ensure you specify the following system properties for the EMC hosts you want to monitor:* Define naviseccli.user with a value matching your username for the cli. * Define naviseccli.pass with a value matching your username for the cli. * Define system.categories with a value of emc.
  5. Hi Simon, rnHave you explored the HTTP-, HTTPS-, or HTTP_Page datasources? I think they can do what you need, sir.rnFor more info, you might review this page, also: http://help.logicmonitor.com/using/datasource/creating-datasources/collectors/webpage-collector/rnThanks,rnMichael
  6. I like the additional sorting parameters youve added Dan. A big thanks to both of you for being an active part of our community. I have referenced your suggestions in our internal ticket. I will follow up with you via this forum post with any updates. Also the dev team actively monitors forum activity here as well. So feel free to post any further suggestions.

    Better Event ID Alerting/Monitoring

    Kris,rnI wanted to let you know that this is not being ignored. At the moment, we dont have definite plans, but we will be re-evaluating our event alerting in early 2015.rnWe know it can be improved.rnThanks,rnMichael

    How to monitor network health?

    Hi Rodger, We do support sFlow, as it is listed as a supported protocol with NetFlow, here: http://help.logicmonitor.com/monitoring-with-logicmonitor/notes-for-monitoring-specific-types-of-hosts/netflow-sflow/ . We support sFlow v5 with the flow sample data format set at enterprise=0 and format=1. Since jFlow, from my understanding, is more of a Juniper tweak to NetFlow, I would suspect it would work as well. I would suggest starting with jFlow v5, if you want to give it a try. I was told last night that we do not support jFlow from one of my support colleagues. But, it turns out we do. If you configure jFlow using the following v5 method: http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB16677, it should work. That is, we have other customers doing exactly this and pulling v5 jFlow data. Configuration example for J-Flow versions 5 and 8: The following procedure provides an example of the J-Flow configuration for versions 5 and 8 (this procedure should also work with NetFlow versions 5 and 8):rn Enable sampling on one or more interfaces and specify the direction: user@host set interfaces ge-0/0/0 unit 0 family inet sampling inputrnuser@host set interfaces ge-0/0/0 unit 0 family inet sampling output Specify the sampling rate: Caution: Activation of flow collection can have a significant impact on the performance of the SRX Series device. The smaller the sample rate, the bigger the impact. It is recommended to not use a sampling input rate of 1. user@host set forwarding-options sampling input rate 100 Specify the UDP port number of the host that is collecting cflowd packets: user@host set forwarding-options sampling family inet output flow-server 10.10.10.1 port 2056 Specify the version format: 5, 8, or 500 (ASN 500): user@host set forwarding-options sampling family inet output flow-server 10.10.10.1 version 5 Thanks, Michael

    Show History of Collector Assignments, per Host

    Hi John,rn Mike actually talks about a custom datasource you can create to do exactly that in this roundtable: 2014 06 25 -- Monitoring Roundtable with Mike Aracic -- Datasources 101.rnrnYou might check it out as a workaround for now.rnThanks!rnMichaelrn
  10. The LogicMonitor techdocs instruct users to use the \'\'Run Debug Commands\'\' for a few reasons. However, there are no instructions on syntax. Please post an explanation as to how that command line interprets special characters (I have passwords with ~ ! and @, do I need to use escape characters?) , and how to enter windows domain credentials (should we use domain\username or username@domain, or are both acceptable?) Thanks, Jerry (This was mistakenly deleted)
  11. Items 1 + 2 make it rather annoying to find services with long names as you have to constantly resize or toggle the Service list.

    Display Charts On RaspberryPI?

    Do you know what software they were using? Im not aware of any browser implementations on the RPI that would be fast enough to handle LogicMonitor.com.rnThere are probably a plethora of linux tools that you can use to graph your data - the question becomes: how do we get it out of LogicMonitor in realtime? You could use our API but we might be taking the first steps down a slippery slope with that approach.rnAnyone else have thoughts?

    Passing arguments to Groovy Script

    Ben, host properties are split into 2 groups: System properties, and custom properties.rnScreenshot: http://imageshack.us/f/545/sn8u.png/rnSystem properties can be referenced by hostProps.get(system.property) Where property is replaced by the specific property: location, ips, displayname, etc. i.e hostProps.get(system.ips)rn rnCustom properties are usually created with the property.name format. For example: snmp.community, wmi.user, etc; but you can specify the property name any way you like. When referencing the custom property just use the exact name of the property. i.e. hostProps.get(ssh.pass) assuming ssh.pass is specified as a custom property on the host.

    Monitor Windows 'new style' Event Logs

    We currently only monitor the 3 main windows logs: Application, Security, System. (See screenshot)
  15. Travis from heartland would like the ability to have wide graphs on dashboards be two columns. He says monitors now a days are wide enough to support it.
