  1. Is there any way to use the AWS Unified CloudWatch Agent and Cloudwatch Logs load EC2 metrics into LogicMonitor similar to what is pulled from the LogicMonitor collector? A little background. We currently use two LogicMonitor collectors to gather Windows metrics from AWS EC2 instances and physical and virtual servers in our on-prem datacenter. This has worked well for the 100 Windows servers and network devices we are monitoring. We are moving all of our on-prem Windows applications to AWS, which requires we change the way we use AWS. Take a look at AWS Control Tower for more details Instead of one AWS account and one VPC ( network ) , we are moving every application and environment ( PROD, UAT, DEV, STAGE ) into different AWS account. No shared networking, so VPC peering or using a TGW isn't an option. This will result in about 20 new AWS accounts and up to 100 by the end of the year. Each of these accounts will have 2 to 20 EC2 Windows instances for web/application along with one EC2 or RDS based Microsoft SQL Server instance. I have no desire to pay for EC2 Windows instances for every account ( possibly hundreds ) just to run the LogicMonitor collector. The most important Windows server monitoring features we rely on in LogicMonitor boil down to - server is down ( ping loss ) - low disk space - high CPU utilization - the ability to alert on Windows Event log entries - Windows service X is not running Then tack on monitoring of an EC2 and RDS Microsoft SQL Server performance data Does LogicMonitor have any recommendations or examples on this type of configuration? Thanks in advance, Kevin Foley
  2. 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 cloudwatch calls which might hit customer billing. For this reason, I added a custom property ##APIGW.stages## so that I could plug in the specific stages I wish to monitor instead of having each one automatically discovered. The Applies To looks like this: system.cloud.category == "AWS/APIGateway" && apigw.stages Autodiscovery is currently written in PowerShell (hence why not everyone can take advantage of it) $apigwID = '##system.aws.resourceid##'; $region = '##system.aws.region##' $stages = '##APIGW.Stages##'; $resources = Get-AGResourceList -RestApiId $apigwID -region $region $stages.split(' ') | %{ $stage = $_ $resources | %{ if($_.ResourceMethods) { $path = $_.Path $_.ResourceMethods.Keys | where{$_ -notmatch 'OPTIONS'} | %{ $wildvalue = "Stage=$stage>Resource=$Path>Method=$_" Write-Host "$wildvalue##${Stage}: $_ $Path######auto.stage=$stage" } } } }
  3. GX2WXT A single Lambda function might have several versions. The default Lambda datasource monitors and alerts on the aggregate performance of each Lambda function. Using the Alias functionality in AWS, this datasource returns CloudWatch metrics specifically for the versions to which you have assigned aliases, allowing you to customize alert thresholds or compare performance across different versions of the same function. This datasource does not automatically discover aliases and begin monitoring them (as this could very quickly translate into several Aliases being monitored and drive up your CloudWatch API bill). Instead, add only the Aliases you want monitored by adding the device property "lambda.aliases" either to individual Lambda functions or at the group level if you're using the same Alias across several lambda functions. To add more than one, simply list them separated with a single space - e.g: "Prod QA01 QA02". If an alias does not exist, no data will be returned. This datasource is otherwise a clone of the existing AWS_Lambda datasource with the default alert thresholds.
  4. I've been creating datasources to collect our custom AWS Cloudwatch metrics as per the docs: https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/monitoring/cloud/monitoring-custom-cloudwatch-metrics/ - mainly this is fine... However it can't cope with dimensionless metrics: "Namespace>Dimensions>Metric>AggregationMethod, where Dimensions should be one or more key value pairs" I've tried creating datapoints without a dimension but it returns NAN (probably because LM requires "one or more key value pairs" for dimensions). We currently use a Python script to collect most our custom metrics but it's resource intensive for our collectors and I'm trying to move away from it. Does anyone know of a way to use the 'AWS CLOUDWATCH' collector with dimensionless metrics?
  5. We have some custom CloudWatch metrics we'd like to gather, display and alert on however, they aren't specific to any host or AWS resource. If we push application specific metrics into CloudWatch, we don't want them tied to any specific application host as hosts/instances can come-and-go. We push these metrics to CloudWatch without an associated EC2 / AWS resource and can see them in CloudWatch, but without an InstanceID, we can not pull these metrics into Logic Monitor. We'd like to be able to pull in and organize any metric from CloudWatch, regardless of whether or not its dimensions include an InstanceID etc.
