LogicMonitor is a cloud-based monitoring solution that enables companies to easily and cost-effectively monitor the performance health of their entire IT infrastructure (e.g. public, private and hybrid cloud or on-site stacks), allowing them to perform mitigating actions before issues turn into full-blown operational catastrophes.
LogicMonitor is for IT professionals specializing in the Network Management, Data Center Networking, Virtualization, Storage, MSP (Managed Service Provider) and CSP (Cloud Services Provider) spaces.
LogicMonitor’s Monitoring Platform components include: * ActiveDiscovery(TM) automated detection, configuration and management of monitoring of hundreds of devices, applications and databases, based on built-in best practices which can save hundreds of engineering hours * ActiveIntelligence(TM) with preconfigured and fully customizable alerts, reporting and dashboards * Engineer-grade live support via phone, email or chat
From fixing network performance issues to looking through logs for relevant security threats, IT professionals have a plate full of job functions to carry out every single day. And if your network is comprised of devices reaching up to the thousands, a 24/7 monitoring solution is a must-have in your IT toolbox.
To get started with LogicMonitor, you will need to install a lightweight data collector (a small Java app) on one Windows or Linux host inside your firewall, specify the devices you want monitored by entering the hostname or IP address, and ActiveDiscovery takes care of the rest. Using templates that work right out of the box, you are then given instant access to monitoring data via a single portal – no matter where you are, using any browser.
Whenever an issue is detected, alerts are sent via email, phone call (text to speech), text message, webhooks or via the web. Alerts can also be routed to different groups based on established escalation rules for device type, severity of issue and time of day.
LogicMonitor follows an alert severity hierarchy that determines whether or not an issue is worth waking users up at 2 a.m., like when a disk is already 95% full. Otherwise, warning emails should suffice. Alert thresholds are pre-configured based on industry best practices, but they can also be adjusted to suit your individual tastes and needs.
Traditional agent-based monitoring solutions require agent installation for each device being monitored in a network. This means that every time the monitoring solution is updated, each agent should be updated as well. Imagine that for a network of devices totaling, say, 10,000.
That’s not even mentioning the sometimes overly complex bureaucratic procedures to be hurdled for environments such as the government or very large corporations where each software installation must undergo an approval process. LogicMonitor requires a single data collector on one Windows or Linux host within your firewall.
ActiveDiscovery is a LogicMonitor functionality that automatically monitors newly added devices, allowing you peace of mind in the knowledge that they will be monitored right away, eliminating manual configuration and the possibility of human error.
Once a device is identified, it is monitored for interfaces, physical disks, volumes, temperature sensors, virtual IPs, VPN links, applications and more.
LogicMonitor may be a hosted service, but no firewall modification is needed for your entire infrastructure to be monitored.
Instead, a single and lightweight data collector is installed on a host within your firewall, and the connection between the collector and LogicMonitor is encrypted and outgoing only, via port 443. All data you choose to send to LogicMonitor, such as IP addresses, are stored encrypted in LogicMonitor databases.
One important ingredient of effective trend estimation and efficient IT budget forecasting is relevant long-term data.
LogicMonitor stores data for up to one year, allowing you to see historical trends, detect usage patterns and estimate requirements for future growth.
LogicMonitor integrates with technologies like ServiceNow, NetApp, PagerDuty, ConnectWise, OneLogin, Puppet Labs, Atlassian HipChat, Rightscale, Twilio and more. Check out the full listing of business apps that integrate with LogicMonitor.
LogicMonitor’s native API client can also be used to integrate with your company’s web and mobile applications, even desktop system management tools. Aside from automatically adding and removing hosts to be monitored as your infrastructure scales up or down, it can be used to download historical graphs and data without needing to access the web interface.
LogicMonitor follows a monthly subscription plan. Visit the website for more pricing information.
