  1. There is a definite need for the ability to carry out synthetic transactions/test ability to access (auth), websites/open links, Desktop/Applications etc in Azure, AWS & other environments, to verify availability, load/run times, (latency etc). This would give confirmation of User/Customer experience and help identify issues, which in this form is not available in LM at this time, but should be. This capability needs adding asap, at a CAB I attended in November this, (synthetic trans.), was on the road map for 2020 (poss release Sept.) and was 'vigorously' discussed by many there stating the sooner the better as it is a large gap in performance/service level offering monitoring.
  2. As an FYI - I have added the following OID to the datasource I have downloaded so that we can see the Maximum Session count (Raw Data) - this may be of use to others as well. alSslStatsMaxSessions - Description - "The maximum number current of active sessions at any one time."
  3. Thanks for getting this pushed through, with all that's going on at the moment it saved a little time in putting something like this together. & Thanks to @Sawer.lef for publishing in the first place
  4. @Stuart Weenig it would be good to have this anyconnect sessions module asap, my company use the cisco anyconnect for vpn and due to corvid19 have just been told to all work from home so this would be useful to track VPN connection usage etc thanks
  5. Unable to download, states it is "LogicModule is Private, Cannot Read" - is this because LM are vetting it?
  6. This is a serious headache for us as well, we need the ability to set Mass select/administer SDT as the current either at an overall group or individual device/instance level is far too restrictive/labourious. I have Feature Requested through our CSM '+' for the following that would certainly improve/help with the various patching/maintenance scenarios across WAN, Hybrid, Application, Azure/AWS environments, as well as make customer/service desk users lives easier for those that do not know or want to jump through API - prep/upload - (post) verify in LM resource views that actions applied; keeping these bulk action within the LogicMonitor UI would keep the process streamlined. 1 - At Group & Datasource level, 'SDT' tab - checkbox's alongside 'Device'/'datapoint' instances so that multiples of devices/datapoints can be selected and added to SDT at the same time without having to do all or each individually, (Think along the lines of the 'Instances' tab already under resources but with the ability to select/apply SDT) 2 - Ability to submit/apply SDT by selecting 'Properties' (custom, system, auto) - this again would give more flexibility to either create custom properties for specific instance scenarios or use properties that apply across multiple instances/groups, allowing for bulk administration for 'Resources' & 'Websites' here's hoping the idea or variation gets traction
  7. A much-needed feature, pop-up confirmation on drag n drop etc - I would, however, leave out the option to 'do not ask me again' as some people might select that option the first time and then they would be back to the same scenario now. The extra mouse click of a confirmatory action is very minor when comparing the potential consequences of dragging one customer device group into another, especially if individual customer 'ServiceNow' or other integrations have been set up.
  8. Totally agree the need for the ability to set escalation chains (+time based)/alert rules with 'Public holidays' in mind is a missed feature that should be standard within the LM Admins toolbox
  9. In addition to the above request and being able to use 'checkboxes' alongside devices under groups to multi-select numerous individual devices and place them into SDT at the same time, (consider windows server patching). I would also like to have the ability to place multiple devices into SDT based upon 'custom properties' (tags), this will help with various scenarios within cloud/hybrid environments where dynamic grouping does not. We are now able to set alert rules based upon custom properties (tag's), can we get the same with SDT?
  10. Agree, need the ability to merge/take into account existing datasource customisation with a new/updated version from LogicMonitor - there is already a difference test in place when you look at the repository/updated ds, taking this to the next level by listing differences found and then giving the 'admin' the option to approve/reject those specific difference changes could/would be useful - I realise there will be limits/caveats to this but..... I believe that LogicMonitor has the Datasource update/merging process on their roadmap for later this year??
  11. Ditto - we have an "xx Not Live xx" Group any new onboarding projects get added to subgroups of this, we then set alert rule to this 'not live' group with email notifications etc going to null@null.null i.e. nowhere. this enables us to see all alerts on newly imported devices and work on them from there.
  12. Hi Mike, There are a number of alarms only visible/shown by the vCenter above & beyond the Alarms seen at the ESX host level. The ability to alert on these is greatly needed, however filtering of these alarms at one level or another to cut the noise is also vital, especially when dealing with multiple vCenter's. vSAN monitoring yes please, we are seeing more and more of this. Also VCSA - (vCenter appliance), with VMware 6/6.5 onwards we will only get these Linux based virtual appliances, we already have a significant number deployed, whilst the vCenter datasources are good for the 'vCenter' application there is a big hole in the monitoring capability for the underlying disk space & VM services - we can configure SNMP on these appliances and then use the Linux ds to see the disk space there is nothing for the services out of the box - we have also seen some potential performance/stress related issues with running SNMP on some of these appliances, so preferably any new DS should be using the New VCSA 6.5 API to look at and pull the various stats/status information. Thanks Nick
  13. I Agree with this request for the reasons given and would ask that it is taken one step further in also having a "Note's" section on the device 'info' tab/page. This would give administrators the ability to add notes of interest/url links etc for a specific device for any known issues or special instructions etc as the 'Description' field is not fit for this purpose.
  14. Agree, we need a couple more Website check locations in the LM cloud side - The USA has 3 checkpoints, Asia, Australia & Europe have 1 a piece how about a further website checkpoint from the London DC & another from a Central Europe location?
  15. I agree that this is a tricky one, not just for iDRAC but also iLO & CIMC which is all the same just different manufacturers. We have to create 2 devices and associate them together by the name, i.e. servernamexx & servernamexx_iDrac / servernameyy & servernameyy_cimc, Invariably these cards are accessed via there own NIC/IP Address, the IP Address at times being on a different range from the main server device. Although it would be good to get away from the 2 device license cost for this scenario type, it would also be really good if the device object upon 'add' or later 'manage' would include the ability to have 2 IP Addresses associated to it so that in effect the Server device and associated iDrac/iLO/CIMC could appear within LogicMonitor as one device entity.
