  1. Hi, I already raised this with LogicMonitor via email, but just re-iterating here. For some datapoints, where we want to generate warning/error/critical alerts, you can use the collection interval and alert trigger interval to basically set the amount of time that should elapse if a datapoint threshold/logic triggers an alert. But it's not possible to currently for example set a completely custom interval based on duration. e.g. if I want to generate a warning alert after 3 hours, and an error alert after 4 hours, you have to use a combination of the two things above to get close enough to the duration you want. It would be great if you could, regardless of the collection interval, have more options in the alert trigger interval (currently 1 to 10, and 20,30,40,50,60). So, if I have a collection interval of 5 minutes, I can currently achieve 2.5 hours or 5 hours using 30 and 60 alert trigger interval respectively. Couldn't there be a regular number input rather than a drop-down with predefined options for the alert trigger interval? or a separate option that allows a completely flexible duration? Also, can a custom interval already be set using the API, regardless of the UI, as I could try that? If there's another way to achieve what I want, would be happy to hear it.. :-) Thanks, Roland
  2. While working on optimizing Powershell scripts for Logic Monitor, we found out that Active Discovery was great for some applications. However, when it came Powershell invoking commands(running scripts on servers), we found that Active Discovery has the potential to generate too many connections to servers. The answer we arrived at was doing everything in one script and returning it all in a JSON response. This worked significantly better than the dynamic Active Discovery, but had one draw back. The data points had to be manually entered. My suggestion is that Logic Monitor modify the data points to allow reference to the JSON responses. Meaning, that we would set one instance of a Data Point with a Name field that indicates the JSON path to an array with all of the Instances and the Post Process could be pointed to the corresponding JSON path for the Value of each instance. JSON Example: [ { "Title":"Name of an Instance", "Value":1 }, { "Title":"Name of another Instance", "Value": 2000 } ] DataPoint would look something like this: Name Metric Type Raw Metric Post Processor Alert Threshold json(Title[*]) guage output json(Value[*]) != 1 Results would create instances like this on a graph as you would if you type them out normal: "Name of an Instance": 1 "Name of another Instance": 2000 I believe this would be more efficient and allow us to be still dynamic.
