    Anyone monitoring site behind Office 365

    There are a few possible approaches but think this is definitely an area for expanding by LM - when I've asked the question previously of LM I was directed to this page as a worked example: https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/websites/external-service-checks/monitoring-an-adfs-sso-website/ The other approach is to look at some of the emerging O365 monitoring data sources that use the MS API - the best I've seen so far is this one: http://blog.mikesuding.com/2018/07/19/office365/ If you've found anything better however please post it up as we'd be keen to see it too.

    Website response times on Big Number & Chart widget

    I understand LM are working on a 'refresh' of Websites in LM in 2019 but would appreciate any info on what is planned? We make big use of the website functionality in LM and need to be able to dashboard website data.

    No... but if you get any responses please let me know too Keen to monitor these too. Thanks Dave

    Additional Checkpoint locations

    @Sarah Terry Just to second what Joe said above "Is it possible to have a mix of the public and internal checkpoints assigned to the same Website check in the future?" - this would be a big step forward for us too unless LM are going to open new Checkpoint locations in the near future (in the UK / Europe region). thanks

    Additional Checkpoint locations

    Hi Sarah, thanks for the swift response, apologies but let me explain our need more clearly... We need to perform website checks from the internet from multiple locations. While LM has 6 internet locations only 1 is close to the UK and the more remote sites appear unreliable. We can only set a single timeout/download time to cover all monitoring locations but even at 30,000ms we still find that we are getting drops and false alarms. Having a number of reliable checkpoint locations is crucial for us so we can protect against false positives and can obtain a reliable reading of how responsive a site actually is. So we were wondering if LM intend to open any further checkpoint locations in the near future - hopefully in the UK or Europe ideally? The [only] alternative we have currently is to build out our own "Collector virtual machines" in data centres around the UK and Europe and use the "Internal Web Check" functionality as you say.
  6. Would LM consider adding more Checkpoint locations in the UK or Europe please? As a UK customer we get poor response times from Sydney and Singapore from the UK. US locations also are not ideal. Could we also have a feature to add our own LM Collectors as checkpoint locations too please?

    MR series Meraki Cloud Endpoint

    Hi, There are native LM data sources that you can import to monitor Meraki MR APs reporting to the Meraki Cloud right out of the box. We followed this to implement and it works well ! https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/monitoring/networking-firewalls/meraki-cloud-wireless-access-controllers/ Is this what you're after? Thanks Dave
  8. We have a use case to show "Response Times" from a subset of configured Websites. Ideally I'd like this to be in the Big Number widget. We also want to able to chart a subset of my Websites' response times over time in the Chart widget. Anyone found a useful workaround to achieve this? Would LM consider "upgrading" widgets to allow the presentation of Website data? Currently only the SLA widget seems capable of handling Website data.

    more cluster alert improvement requests

    Agree this is a point of pain for us too. If a VM or cluster resource has an issue LM (rightly?!) reports alarms from every node in the cluster. A mechanism to dedupe alarms from cluster resources would be appreciated.
  10. We'd like the ability to illustrate a data center "rack" physically on a dashboard. In simplest terms we'd like to be able to custom sort and arrange items in a single column NOC Widget to represent hardware in a rack. The current sorting options on this Widget don't allow this (alphabetical or alert severity). Ideally we'd really like a new "Rack" widget into which I can drop in devices in the appropriate "U" locations giving an instant rack health overview capability on a dashboard. Longer term LM could take this further and have a free-form dashboard Widget/container onto which users can drop networking devices and "connectors" to mock up an indicative network schema. The above ideas would give users visibility of rack and network health in a more meaningful and intuitive notation.

    Include interface alias(description) on reports

    Hi, Does anyone know if there is any capability to be able to label or alias interfaces on switches / firewalls / servers etc yet? Thanks

    Dashboard group within a group

    We'd like this also please.
  13. We had a DHCP pool that was nearing capacity and noticed that LM didn't alarm? Please can we request some DHCP pool monitoring capabilities for Windows Server?
  14. We'd like to be able to add a Service to more than one group just as you can do for Devices. The use case is as follows: We want to allow our clients access to see their services so need 1 group to contain their services (allows us to assign a Role to this group limiting their access). We (internally) also want to group services logically by platform /product etc so we can see platform health rolled up at a glance so need the service to be added to a second group for that also.

    Include interface alias(description) on reports

    Hi, We'd also like to be able to alias/name interfaces/ports. Please can you advise if this has been implemented at all yet? We'd like to see the alias on graph widgets rather than say "eth0" etc. Thanks
