LogicMonitor is one of the fastest options for getting a server monitoring infrastructure up and running. A key differentiator for the platform is its automated discovery feature that uses different protocols to rapidly find devices and applications so they can be monitored.
LogicMonitor has both on-premises capabilities for servers as well as hypervisors and cloud deployments.
Monitoring templates are another core capability in the LogicMonitor platform providing administrators with a pre-configured set of items that other organizations are monitoring for a given server or application. Some organizations have expressed concern about the platform user reporting module, though overall the platform is well regarded as a solid server and infrastructure monitoring tool.
LogicMonitor uses over 20 standard protocols to identify a given device so it can be onboarded for monitoring.
The platform provides insights into app availability, end user experience and performance metrics for the entire IT infrastructure including servers, as well as virtual machines, storage databases and apps.
Collector technology makes use of industry standard protocols to deploy and monitor devices.
Real Time Performance Metrics:
For servers LogicMonitor tracks multiple metrics including, Application Requests/Sec, average and Peak Response Times and Latency, as well as CPU and Memory Utilization.
Dashboard can be easily adjusted by administrators to display different data sets.
Alert Escalation Chains:
To make sure alerts of different severity reach the right people, admins can create escalation chains that designate certain types of alerts classifications to the appropriate staff member within the organization. Different alert rules can be configured to identify which escalation chain to use for different devices.
Full reporting capabilities on performance metrics, alerts and utilization.
