  1. Hi Mark, Certainly an understandable request. While not intrinsic in LM itself, it is possible to manage some aspects of your account in a programatic and versioned way via our integrations with Terraform and Ansible. Beyond that, there is work underway that will help with some of what you mention: Undelete for hosts and groups (upcoming release v103) "safe import" for data sources (various aspects coming out over the next 2 quarters) LM Exchange: a versioned history of data sources from within an account (Q3/Q4). Safe import is a pre-requisite to this. Jeff
  2. Hi sfrancis, Thanks for the comment. We've discussed log monitoring but not tackled it for a number of reasons, one of which being that the Splunk's, SumoLogic's, etc., of the world are very robust tools that do what they do really well especially when it comes to the terabytes worth of data that is often thrown at them. Most companies have a solution like this in place already, so integrating with them more tightly is our preferred path at the moment. Having said that, "push data" is something we've got on the docket for next year. While that certainly will include technologies l
  3. Hi Paul - Its a good request and well directly support this in the future. In the meantime you can integrate with a SAML v2.0 IdP:rn all SAML IdPs support two-factor authentication, including the SaaS IdPs listed at the bottom of the page who we have directly partnered with. rnBy delegating LogicMonitor authentication to one of these services, and enforcing two-factor there, youre effectively enforcing two-factor for LogicMonitor access.rn rn
  4. Hi Rodger - By no means a robust solution, but perhaps of interest since you mentioned option 4) above: it is possible to generate NetFlow data from pretty much any linux distro using a tool called fprobe. We used it in some of our testing. It simply will capture whatever traffic it sees flowing over a wire and export NetFlow data based on it. It looks like nProbe is also an option, but I'm not familiar with it. It looks like it has a lot more documentation associated with it. Jeff
  5. Hi Rodger - While certainly not providing you with all you're looking for, you might get some use out of the Ping (Multi) datasource. It will allow you to ping multiple IPs/hosts from a collector to to see latency and packet loss. From its description: Ping multiple locations. Note: even though this can be applied to an arbitrary host, the source of the ping will always be the collector. This being the case, it makes the most sense to add instances to the host the collector is install on. Where I've used it in the past is for monitoring both the internal and public IP address of a VP
  6. Hi Niels - The way we usually address a situation like this is in to clone the datasource for the Netscaler LBVS and modify the Active Discovery section to include a filter that will only match LBVS in an OUT OF SERVICE state. You could then modify this new datasource to not alert on ServicesUP. n nOn the original datsource for LBVS, you would then add to the Active Discovery section the same filter as used in the cloned datasource, but making it NOT match LBVS in the OUT OF SERVICE state.n nWe would be happy to do this for you if you would like, just send in a request to support@logicmonitor
  7. So this question was actually asked by a customer. A little bit of digging brought me to HP SNMP Agents for Citrix XenServer:n n nInstall this, make sure the SNMP community in LogicMonitor is correct, and you are ready to go. If the new datasources dont show up, try right-clicking on the host More... -> Run active discovery. Refresh the screen after about 20 seconds and you should be good to go.
  8. Hello - We should be able to get TCP VIPs statistics without a problem. If you could bounce us a message to with the specific Netscaler name and TCP VIP name in your portal we can investigate this. While HITS is open to interpretation, Im sure something along the lines of incoming SYNs and established connections could be available.
  9. I\'d like to monitor the health of the RAID on my Dell server running CentOS. It\'d be good to monitor fans and power supply status as well. How do I do this?
  10. We dont monitor OpenLDAP natively at this time, though, as with most any sort of monitoring issue, our system can be extended by the use of an external script to do (see the help page on the script collector for more information).n nOpenLDAP monitoring involves exposing the monitoring statistics on the server:n n nIf a simple script is written that exposes the relevant metrics in key/value pairs we can easily start monitoring and plotting the output. Such a script would output in a format such as:n nAbandonCompleted : 43727n nAbandonInitiated : 43727n

  12. How do I rebuild my Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) registry if it is corrupt?
  13. Hello - We dont have a limit on the size of the email we send out. Syslog messages themselves are generally limited to a maximum size of 1KB, per RFC. If you could post an example of your syslog message from a log file (please dont forget to obscure any non-public information!) we can look further, or just contact with the information
  14. Hi Rick - n nWe dont have the specific documentation for this on our API documentation page yet ( ), but it is available via the addAccount() method. The call is:n n/santaba/rpc/addAccount(String username, String password, Stringn nphone, String smsemail, String smsEmailFormat, int[] roles, Stringn nstatus=active)n nTo get the list of roles:n n/santaba/rpc/getRoles()n nCombining this with the information on the API page should provide enough information for scripting it, if that is what you would like to do.n nOf course, if you would like us to do a bu
