    Running vs Startup Comparison ConfigSource (PoC)

    @Antony Hawkins Thanks for the follow up. I've played with this configsource over the last few days and have some thoughts. The property names for the API key and id have changed but that is easy enough to update in the configsource script. What is limiting the value of this configsource is that IOS provides different output from show run and show start. Show starting-config includes certificate chains while show running-config does not. This of course results in a diff trigger. IOS does have a show runing-config brief option that excludes certificate data. However that would obviously require a change to the IOS configsource pulling the configurations. If possible there would be value in excluding the certificate data from the diff in this configsource.

    Cisco Warranty Status

    I'm working through the approvals now to get access. They also have an API for pulling PSIRT (security advisories) that I want to play with. Might also have a lot of value.

    HTTPS Remote Access

    @Michael Fisher HTTPS sooner rather than later would be good. For other ports you'll never have a complete list but how about a tunnel functionality to enable remote access to protocols you don't support and non-standard ports?

    Cisco Warranty Status

    Would be helpful to have Cisco device warranty and contract status potentially shown as a property.

    ConnectWise Configuration Record Attachments

    I don't believe this is a feature of Logicmonitor. Did you find a solution? We are looking at Auvik now because of the integration with Connectwise. How do you find Logicmonitor compared to Auvik?

    Public IP Property Source

    Thanks for this, this is great. I am only interested in the ip and org info so in the interest of de-cluttering the property source info I reduced the script output to just that. Stack Exchange (since I'm not a groovy guy) pointed me to this solution. //comment out orig map iteration //arrayInfo_map.each{ key, value -> println "$key=$value"}; def ip_addr = arrayInfo_map.find{ it.key == "ip" }?.value; if(ip_addr) println "ip = ${ip_addr}"; def carrier = arrayInfo_map.find{ it.key == "org" }?.value; if(carrier) println "org = ${carrier}"; I wouldn't be surprised if improvement on this is possible. Thanks again.

    collector fail count

    One of our collectors is experiencing what seems to be connectivity issues. Common symptoms are it loses communication with the LM cloud, remote sessions to it or monitored devices fail to complete. I also notice that the collector heartbeat fail datapoint is increasing with time. I've seen it's value over 6000. Support hasn't been able to tell me what this value actual is other than providing developer notes, which are unfortunately unhelpful. Can anyone provide some insight to what this failure count is actually counting? Has anyone seen and resolved this symptom? We are planning on rebuilding the host server and recreating the collector.

    Alert Supression Logs

    It would be beneficial to have direct access to logs indicating when alerts are suppressed due to escalation chain rate limits. Currently these logs are only available through support.

    Running vs Startup Comparison ConfigSource (PoC)

    I tried pulling this configsource but it looks like it is under security review. Any idea when it will be available?

    DataSources_List PropertySource

    It seems YH9ZXM is unavailable due to security review. Is there a stats on this?

    Meraki Multiple Organizations

    So far so good, no issues with this hack for monitoring Meraki networks as of yet.

    Meraki Multiple Organizations

    We manage multiple Meraki organizations and have been limited by the one collector per organization rule. Monitoring a Meraki organization via the Meraki cloud requires snmp.meraki.com be used as the IP Address/DNS name with the organizations unique snmp settings. A collector requires unique IPaddress/DNS name for each Logicmonitor device which prevents multiple organizations from being monitored by the same collector. To circumvent the one controller per organization limitation we've created internal DNS c-name records which point to snmp.meraki.com and use those as the IP Address/DNS name entry for different client organizations. We are currently running this as a test and haven't experienced any issues to date. I'd like to know if anyone else has experience with this (or any other) workaround, if so if any issues were experienced or if anyone can identify potential problems. Thanks

    Dependencies or Parent/Child Relationships

    Has using an empty value for the depends_on property been tested to have negative results? My testing shows no ill effect. Adding this property at the group level obviously speeds deployment. However if the primary device is within the group I don't want to make it dependent on itself. Adding the depends_on property to the primary device with an empty value seems to resolve this.

    Cisco ASR configsource

    Cisco_IOS excludes the ASR platform. Is there a plan to create a unique configsource for the ASRs or update Cisco_IOS?
  15. We are an MSP migrating an existing client base to LM for network and voice infrastructure health monitoring. For ease of deployment, when we do not manage their server infrastructure, we are thinking of providing clients with an ova to deploy within their network. Once the VM is deployed the collector will be installed. Any words of wisdom or lessons learned from your experiences doing something similar would be appreciated.
