LogicMonitor

Prior to using LogicMonitor we used multiple tools to fit all our monitoring needs, with no individual tool being able to achieve that. After reviewing LogicMonitor against our other tools we found it could do the job of all these tools on its own. We then proceeded to consolidate our toolset into LogicMonitor migrating all devices away from our other tools and have had no problems since.As stated in cons, one of the current let downs for LogicMonitor is how strict the RBAC is. Some changes have been made recently to make this more flexible but one of the main things I think is needed which currently does not exist is to allow access to a limited set of data sources, as currently when you give access to logic modules the role will get access to them all.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

Are you in the Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, other) -- you won't be able to use SRM. This does not give visibility into block and/or object storage.Do you have high-performance, multi-tiered storage solutions from vendors like HP, Dell, IBM, or others? Do you have a VMware environment hosted by your shared storage solution? Then this is the tool to link everything together for you.

Pros

LogicMonitor

  • LogicMonitor data sources allow you to monitor practically anything. If you can convert it to data, LogicMonitor can be modified to ingest and alert on it. There are a large number of out of the box data sources that cover pretty much everything standard you want to monitor, there is a large community of users who have also published their data sources and there is the flexibility to create your own. Data sources are limited only by your imagination.
  • LogicMonitor offers the ability to monitor a broad range of devices and environments with great detail and precision. We struggled to find a software package that offered the ability to monitor both our Cloud and on-prem environments, with the detail we were looking for and at the price that we were offered. We have grown by acquisition so we are in all the Clouds as well as running a diverse set of hardware and software environments and LogicMonitor was out of the box ready to handle a vast majority of our environments.
  • LogicMonitor customer support is very responsive and willing to work on any issues that we are experiencing. Their first level support handles most of our questions and is able to quickly escalate directly to the developers for any bugs that are discovered.

Cons

LogicMonitor

  • It's not "easy", but it's the "easiest" of all the tools we've used
  • One of our main products, Ubiquit Unifi, wasn't supported out of box like others were
  • No integrations with IT Glue, AutoTask Configuration Items, Warranty Master or other MSP Tools

The only reason we would leave logicmonitor would be price. Everything else has been really really good

Usability

It's very good. One area for improvement is the ability to group large quantities of objects together more quickly or disable alerts for specific instances completely very quickly.Alert Tuning is one of the more complex, but entirely necessary parts of the product to use keeping me from rating usability a 10.

I have only had to reach out to them a few times, but it has been a great experience every time. They do not have access into your environment until you enable support access, which is for a set amount of time. This is great because I know that my customers have data privacy unless there is a problem that needs to be addressed. When I am working on developing a new datasource they provide a sandbox account that I am able to do my work in. This allows support as needed in the sandbox environment so I do not need to allow access to production data for that process.

Pretty straight forward. Not much to say except to speak to Logicmonitor about planning your collector sizes to begin with.

Alternatives Considered

LogicMonitor

LogicMonitor is head and shoulders above anything we have used before. Traverse was the most feature-rich, but the back-end was cumbersome and problem-prone. But it was not extensible, support was lacking, and product updates were inconsistent.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.

Return on Investment

LogicMonitor

  • It is great the pricing model is very flexible so it is easy to scale up and down as requirements change and fluxuate. It is also simple (less than it used to be) so fairly easy to calculate costs - no complexity around interface counts or whatnot - just number of monitored hosts.
  • Very fast to deploy so it is easy to go from a problem one day to a solution the next day - proactively identifying issues instead of responding to end user complaints.
  • LogicMonitor added a killer feature (possibly to compete with Auvik) of configuration management. However it costs a fairly substantial amount just to turn it on whether you have one device or 100. I don't get it - I think a nominal fee per device would align better with the service and customer expectations of the product.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

  • Real-time monitoring and alerting to surpass those of native vSphere and in some occasions, better than manufacturer written software.
  • Historical monitoring of environment with charts and graphs to assist with ever changing environment loads.
