R79DJL I'm not sure if this datasource was removed intentionally, but there was a datasource named "Windows_Cluster_Failover" that monitored for cluster failover events. We've been using this datasource, but we noticed that it triggered a false alarm last night which prompted me to go back and rebuild it. This datasource will monitor a Windows cluster for a failover event. If a failover is detected, it will be logged in the LogicMonitor's installation directory (Default is "c:/Program Files (x86)/LogicMonitor/bin/"). The datasource exits if certain calls fail altogether (to prevent false alerts) and there is a separate alert that will trigger if the datasource continuously fails to get data. So far this appears to be working more reliably, so I thought I'd share.
LM Team, When you are on your primary collector and choose a failover collector and are deciding to check that box "Automatically failback when THIS collector becomes available again". The way that it is worded, THIS collector could mean the current collector you are configuring. Then again, the checkbox is underneath the failover collector you just selected and it is indented, so it's easy to convince yourself that it could be referring to the failover collector. I think it would be worth re-wording or at least offering a hover-hint (?) box to clarify that the failback will be occurring on the collector you are currently configuring. Looking back, I had checked this box differently depending on how I felt that day and which made most sense to me at the time. Some clairification would be good. Thanks!
