About Me

  1. Hello, We recently cloned 2 Logic Monitor out of the box datasources (name -> WinService- & WinProcessStats-) in order to enable the 'Active Discovery' feature on those. We did this because we've the need to discover services/processes automatically, since we don't have an 'exact list' of which services/processes we should monitor (due to the amount of clients [+100] & the different services/solutions across them) After enabling this it works fine & does what we expect (discovers all the services/processes running in each box), we further added some filters in the acti
  2. XKJNGZ Uses Powershell to make WMI queries to get the current backlog file count for each outbound DFSR partner on each DFSR share. These queries can be expensive if the backlog is large, so the polling interval is set to 10 minutes. If there is no backlog, the script finishes quickly. No default alerting is set, but I would recommend adding a threshold to be notified of potential replication issues. NOTE* - The collector must be able to reach both DFSR partners and will use the same credentials to make the queries for both.
  3. Windows Drive Space Alerts By default, LogicMonitor alerts on the percentage used on any drive. This in general is fine, but sometimes not. Let’s imagine you have a 2.2 terabytes drive. You might have your critical threshold set at 90%, which sounds fine, until you realise that you are going to get a critical alert when you still have 220 GB free. In my case that would be a cause for some celebration, not really an urgent need to get up at 3 A.M. and delete files so the world doesn’t end. Now Imagine your 2.2TB drive is divided up as: C: 10 GB (OS) D: 500 GB (Mission cr

  5. Just a quick question about LogicMonitor, Does LogicMonitor support Windows Server 2019? In terms of the Collector software? Thank you
  6. Published with lmLocator: FHGN6P This datasource will check the activation status of Windows and alert if a 1 (licensed) is not returned
  7. Windows Server Core and (the free) Hyper-V Server Core are GUI-less versions of Windows that can be administered remotely with GUI tools. We've recently seen an uptick in requests for deployment of the collector to these platforms, as Windows introduces a lot of overhead with the addition of the GUI; the other compelling reason to go this route being that Hyper-V Core is a free license of Windows from Microsoft (similar to the free flavor of ESXi, only it can run a Windows collector!)

  8. I wrote this DataSource for a customer with a specific requirement, namely, they have a particular application that should spawn and maintain a specific number of processes on Windows machines. Operation: The DataSource finds all processes on the Windows machine and groups and counts based on name - e.g. if there are processes powershell, powershell#1, powershell#2, then the powershell instance will be added and will show a count of 3. Out of the box this DataSource will create instances for *all* processes as reported from the Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process WMI class, except the
  9. Don't know if anyone else noticed, but MS released a pretty slick script that enables WMI access remotely without admin rights. I have done a brief test with LM and it seems to be working well. That's the article. I created an AD group instead of a user to delegate, and I put the LM collector service in that group. Everything else I've followed as documented. I haven't tested anything else, but this alone is a huge step in the right direction.
  10. WALDXL - Download Speed This datasource will run a PowerShell script that downloads a 10MB file and then figures out the speed in Mbps that it was downloaded. CAUTION: This datasource will download a 10Mb file for every Windows machine specified in the applies to field(default is not applied),every poll(deafult is 20 minutes), depending on your environment this could raise the price for your monthly ISP bill. Specifically if your ISP speeds ramp up when needed. I would recommend applying this to: hasCategory("speed") and isWindows() The of course you just need
  11. Hi, Maybe the community are intressted in using collectors as stand-alone outside a domain (in a workgroup).. We are and have ran into all possible effects of it... one thing is to monitor Windows DHCP Servers that ar joined to a domain. THen you need to authenticate against some classes to discover and to get metrics. Had some chat sessions with the LM support and they got me closer to the solution.. But I solved it finally using credentials to discover and inventory the DHCP server and Scopes with powershell using domain credentials on my collector in a workgroup Here they Are
  12. I have found where I can monitor services for a device and have set up a test to monitor services on the windows device. Is there a way to set this as a datasource? That way I can do the AppliesTo scripting and have specific devices being monitored for specific services they are running? I have about 80 devices and configuring Service Alerts for each of them would take a bit of time, I'm trying to be more efficient.

    T4WZC3 Initially I created this to monitor the status of DFS shares, but can be used on any Windows share. Monitors for the status as indicated by Microsoft's MSDN site here Graphs allow you to easily see the status over time.
  15. Code is TXL3W9 This DataSource provides instances for each of the Network adapters, including the following Instance Level Properties: auto.TcpWindowSize auto.MTU auto.MACAddress auto.IPSubnet auto.IPAddress auto.DNSHostName auto.DNSDomain auto.DefaultIPGateway auto.SettingID auto.Description
  16. 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 fa
  17. Hello All, I am trying to get 4 Windows to switch every 10 seconds between the different windows - I can do this when the windows have different names but I am facing an issue that i am using LogicMonitor for 3 different dashboards. So the 2 windows mentioned for LogicMonitor are different windows/different dashboards - How can I get my script to identify them as different windows and make them switch between the 2 ?ex: Cassandra Hope this makes sense..... Here is thes script I have: Option Explicit Dim WshShell Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell
  18. @Dave Lee Q came up with idea this initially, then we kicked it around a bit refining it, tweaking it, and completely rewriting it, before finally settling on this version. What it does: Creates auto.interfaceindex_X.YYY property sources for every network interface with a MAC address on a Windows device. auto.interfaceindex_<interfaceIndex>.mac auto.interfaceindex_<interfaceIndex>.name auto.interfaceindex_<interfaceIndex>.netconnectionid Additionally, it creates a single auto.device.macaddresses property containing a semi-colon separated list o
  19. A modified version of the stock WinIf- DataSource, with various Instance Level Properties brought in from the related Win32_NetworkAdapter class. Adds: auto.interface.adaptertype auto.interface.macaddress auto.interface.manufacturer auto.interface.netconnectionid auto.interface.netenabled auto.interface.pnpdeviceid auto.interface.servicename See for more details on what each of these are, and other ILPs you may choose to further add. v1.3.0: 3LD3EN
  20. We are seeing a sporadic (every couple days) error where the Window Remote Management service (svchost.exe_WinRM) dies along with several other services (DNS Client, Workstation, etc). This causes our App Pool Memory Usage graph to stop logging data until we re-enable the WinRM service. Here are the details from the error in the Event Viewer: Seconds before this happens our LogicMonitor service account has Event Log entries for the registry and file system. Has anyone else seen this error in conjunction with LogicMonitor?

  24. The WannaCry ransomware attack has been a topic of much discussion in the last few days - and a source of much consternation for system administrators. One of the attack vectors used by WannaCry to spread is a vulnerability in the SMBv1 protocol commonly included with Windows operating systems. This embedded PowerShell datasource reaches out to Windows devices in a LogicMonitor account, and runs the "Get-SMBServerConfiguration" command (available only in Windows Server 2012 and newer) to see if SMBv1 is enabled, and if it is, it will generate a Warning alert for that device (caveat: SMBv1
  25. Hi All, Could you please consider the following as product feature. To make changes to the "Configure LogicMonitor Collector" without the need to uninstall and reinstall the collector. For example the error stating that your credential is wrong no you need to schedule down time just to uninstall and reinstall the collector where you can just simply modify your credential which take you 5 sec to do. Thank you! Looking forward to the out come. Kind Regards Gerrit
