Alter thresholds based on date and time

Question

I\'m looking to adjust my monitoring thresholds based upon not only time (which I know is supported) but date as well. For example, I expect between the hours of 9AM and 5PM a certain level of traffic, but only for weekdays. During the weekend traffic subsides - but I know those expected ranges as well. How can I create thresholds based upon both date and time. Another use case would be holidays, so I don\'t want to adjust just on M, T, W, R, F, but be able to specify exact dates, etc (preferably through an API so I can distribute the application with its monitoring profile that gets uploaded to LM).

Another way to view this is traffic range monitoring - can LogicMonitor do averages based upon date-and-time and then alert if traffic deviates outside its average range. Example, 12PM on Thursday afternoon always averages \'\'40\'\' give or take. If all of a sudden the traffic drops to 20 then an alert would be issued.

Hi Joseph,rn rnThe current way to do this (since we do not currently support advanced time/cron scheduling on datapoint thresholds) would be to use a time-based threshold for the actual datapoint threshold, based on the time of the day that you want this datapoint to alert, and then used a time-based escalation chain to designate the days of the week that you want these alerts to route for delivery.rnPlease let me know if you have any further questions.rn rnKind regards,rn rnJoseph Skup.rnLogicMonitor Support
