  1. Please include the storage type for RDS instances as a system property. For example: system.aws.storagetype=gp2. We would like to monitor the burst balance on these disks and that datasource would only need to be applied to RDS instances using gp2.
  2. Hi @Stuart Weenig! Thanks so much for taking the time to look into this. I did discover some issues with my output and it's now properly formatted. But, unfortunately, it's still not changing the appearance of the icons. I suspect perhaps this is related to the combination of category and type. For example - the in order for the AWS EC2 icon to appear on an EC2 instance, the output would need to look something like this: {"rawERIs":[{"category":"cloud.aws","priority":2,"type":"AWS EC2","value":"i-a1b2c3d4e5f6g7"}]} Of course, this is only a theory. I have yet to find any d
  3. I've been playing around with topology mapping with some success. However, the icons displayed after the map is built are the standard IP and instance icons. I've modified my custom ERI propertysources to try to get them to display something other than these two icons, but the icons never seem to change. According to the LM documentation regarding these icons, I should be able to choose anything from the list: Has anyone successfully been able to get the map to reflect the icons above? For example, "predef.externalResourceType=AWS EC2" does not appear to do anything. Nor does
  4. Hi @Nicklas Karlsson and @Jonathan Hill, So you guys are running into an issue where the datasource isn't finding any instances. That's no good! The datasource uses remote Powershell commands from the Windows collector to the target server. I would probably start by using an RDP session to a collector and running the script from an elevated PS session. Before you run it, you'll need to modify the script to use whatever creds you have set up on that target server. For a quick test, just check to see if these two wmi calls return anything from the remote system: $hostname =
  5. Hi @John Biniewski, The alert thresholds are largely going to depend on how large your share are. You can set the alert threshold to something quite low like 10, and wait for an alert, but unfortunately, this is one of those times when you'll need to revisit your thresholds to determine what is normal for your environment(s). Wish I could be more help here.
  6. We have begun implementing a tagging standard in our cloud accounts to better control discovered resources and route alerts accordingly. I would like to be able to route alerts by default based on the value of a tag. I'm aware that I can already set up specific users and then achieve exactly what I'm requesting, but I would much prefer to have a blanket rule that uses the tag's value as the recipient email address(es) directly. Some examples below: system.aws.tag.MonitorAlertEmail=ThisIsAnExample@PleaseOfferThisFeature.com system.aws.tag.SendAlertsHere=AnotherExcellentExample@WeWi
  7. I have built a generic StatusPage.IO datasource to allow for monitoring the status of various services we use. Since so many companies are using StatusPage.io, I figured it's a good idea to have a heads up in the event there is an outage with one of our many service providers. This has worked well as an early warning system for our service desk guys to know about issues before they start getting calls from end users. LogicMonitor actually uses StatusPage, but of course there are many, many others. Attached is a screenshot of the Box.com StatusPage data that we've collected from https://stat
  8. I have been using a custom datasource to collect the metrics for each resource and method (excluding OPTIONS) behind a API Gateway stage. It has been extremely useful in our production environments. I would share the datasource via the Exchange, but the discovery method I'm using will not be universal, so I think it would be best if that discovery were to work natively. If possible, could we please have a discovery method for AWS API Gateway Resources by Stage? *Something to note - This has the potential to discover quite a few resources and thus, create a substantial number of cloud
  9. I agree. Adding instance groups with auto-inclusion rules similar to device groups would be extremely useful for alerting, graphing, etc.
  10. We're experimenting with netflow now and we are also struggling with these very real limitations. It would be great if we could get a response as to whether or not enhancements to Netflow are going to be prioritized. Currently we're finding that we have no other choice but to rely on multiple tools to gather this data.
  11. It would be immensely helpful if I could see and test alert routing from the Cluster Alerts page at the device group level similar to the existing Alert Routing button on the Alert Tuning tab. As we begin to more heavily utilize this functionality, it's critical that we can verify that alerts are routed correctly wherever we set it up.
  12. Wow @mnagel! Thanks so much for this! I'm going to look into running this so I can get that list put together. I don't have any plans to systematically delete the datasources - I'm just wanting to compile a list so I can review them. I'll feed the obvious ones into a script as a one-time purge and once I've done that, I can take a closer look at those that should be working, but aren't for whatever reason.
  13. HI @Sarah Terry, Thanks for the tip! I also saw that as a workaround, but unfortunately it wouldn't really help with what I'm attempting to accomplish. What I'm trying to do is find datasources with applies-to functions like "isWindows()" or "isLinux()" that aren't actually discovering any instances. It's almost always because the datasource is built to monitor a product or service that we don't use and likely never will. I'd like our datasource list to only contain datasources that are actually in use and applicable to our systems/services. Similarly, there are datasources that appl
  14. I'm trying to clean up datasources that are in our account that do not have any instances associated with them and likely never will. Currently I have to do this manually by inspecting each datasource in the GUI. It would be really great if the datasource instance count was returned as a property. Even better would be if the instances and associated device ID's were returned as well, but for now I'd be happy with just the device/instance counts.
  15. Have you tried enabling rate-limiting? At least until it all gets sorted out - I'd consider setting up a duplicate escalation chain and an alert rule specifically for some of your syslog eventsources and enable rate-limiting on them. Before my LogicMonitor days, I had this happen a few times and it sucks dealing with a crippled Exchange server while also trying to work out a firewall issue. Syslog is unpredictable sometimes.
