    SDT for minor alerts

    Hi, Every morning i have to clear a couple of hundred alerts from my inbox that come in while our customers servers are running backups. We often get 'disk latency' 'network latency' type alerts while the backups are running. As they are run outside of hours, we do not really need these. Please could you add a way of creating SDT based on alert severity or better yet, build a mechanism to schedule backup window times to filter noise alerts like disk latency. I'm sure I'm not the only one to encounter this issue. Kris
  2. Hi, This is really annoying. I have to set custom alerts for our data sources for things like VMware data source usage. The default data sources only give you an error alert when the disk gets to 99% not a critical. I always change this as a data source filling up will take your Vm's offline. I do this for quite a few other alerts too. I then see a new VMware data source that you guys put up and get excited and apply it strait away....overwriting my custom alerts. This normally results in an outage because we didn't notice a data source filling up and a phone call from my boss. so my feature request is...can you guys allow us to 'write protect' our custom alerts so we can import new data sources preserving our custom alerts or changes? Please???

    Better Event ID Alerting/Monitoring

    It's now 2017, do you have an update on this please?

    Allow same Device Names (different groups)

    Any update on this? Come on guys, it's been ages...!

    Event Log Messages - Accumulating numbers

    Has any progress been made on this? I feel we are missing a major part of server monitoring without it.

    Asset Tracking

    Yes, this would be handy Josh and would help with grouping devices into the correct LM groups.
  8. This would be a great feature and time and time again we get replication errors between AD servers that go un-noticed. Big thumbs up for this feature.

    Thanks Steve.

    Better Windows Event Monitoring

    Hi, As much as i love the graphs and visuals that LM produces for all sorts of metrics, unfortunately a big part of our monitoring is keeping an eye on Windows Event Logs, which i have to say LM is not that good at. Adding exceptions is a pain (i now have so many i often delete them by accident when adding new ones). I have been told this is in the pipeline for the new UI several times but it has not been mentioned as yet. My first line guys check our gfi & LM dashboard every morning and i hear time again that they prefer the gfi one for looking at Event log messages. I have even caught them loading gfi on to servers that already have LM on them (costing us twice the cost). Is there anything in the pipeline for this? I know it's not a priority for you guys, but i think for a lot of customers it would be.

    DHCP monitor for Windows Server?

    Yes, this would be a very handy feature. We often get wireless DHCP scopes getting full.

    Clone Devices

    Hi, Sometimes we have to set quite a few properties on devices, it would be great to be able to clone these. EG - nodes in a cluster.

    Alert Groups

    Hi, We get quite a few alerts in our LM, about 90% of them are made up of a few problems, like Vmware storage luns. It would be useful to be able to group these, to get rid of the 'noise' calls so we can focus on the more urgent ones. What would be even better would be if you could assign permissions to these groups. For instance, the first line can see certain groups and third line can see other groups. Kris

    Allow same Device Names (different groups)

    We need servers to be easily identified by customers, for example 'mail server' 'exchange server' 'ad server'. These may be used for each customer, of which we have you can see this can very quickly get confusing and difficult to manage. I spoke to someone at LM a while ago who said devices were going to get a UID, making it possible to have the same device name used multiple times. Is this not happening?

    /* or not to /*

    Annoying isn't it. I have put several requests in for this. It's not so bad for me who uses LM every day, but trying to explain to other people to put a /* sometimes and not others is a nightmare! They are always just typing the customers name in the alerts tab and then telling me Logic Monitor is broken because it doesn't show any alerts.
