LogicMonitor is being evaluated in our internal labs as the potential EMS and NMS solution. This is being used for Network, Server and Database Monitoring Solution. We are using LogicMonitor for other infrastructure monitoring as well such as VMWare, Cloud Services, MiddleWare, Websites etc.
Internal Monitoring team is the current users of LogicMonitor who are building out solutions for different technologies.
  • Devices and website monitoring.
  • Cloud services monitoring.
  • Alerting and dynamic threshold
  • AIOPS via alert forecasting and data usage forecasting.
  • Application Performance Monitoring (APM).
  • Devices compliance check.
  • Devices automation.
  • Reports limitation.
LogicMonitor is one stop solution for you entire IT infrastructure except Application Performance Monitoring space. if you want to monitor APM stuff then this is not the right tool. It can also do Cloud Services monitoring for AWS, GCP, Azure. You can also do Selenium based synthetic monitoring via LogicMonitor apart from basic devices fault and performance monitoring.

LogicMonitor is used to screen hundreds of locations for UP/DOWN, performance issues in infrastructure (servers, network), a misconfiguration in infrastructure, and related. It feeds a ticketing system (ConnectWise Manage in this case). It generates alerts on emergency conditions by email and text to the appropriate teams.
  • Alert on outages of power and Internet (site availability)
  • Alert on VMware and Microsoft server configuration or performance issues
  • Alert on website outages
  • Needs better out of the box alerting / templates
  • Generates too many repetitive tickets in ConnectWise Manage (working with their support to resolve)
  • Admin portal user interface could be simplified and improved
  • Takes time to fine tune / dial in the alerting
  • Mapping feature is poorly executed (concept is to build a real-time network map)
  • LogicMonitor is well suited for MSP or internal IT to monitor alerts on VMware, server, infrastructure, Internet, power, and website outages/performance issues/misconfiguration.
  • It can alert by email, TXT, and integration with common APIs.
  • It is reasonably priced. It is an effective NOC tool.
  • LogicMonitor is not well suited to organizations that will not invest the time to customize the alerts, dial in the settings, and of course, respond to the alerts. We have hundreds of sites and LogicMonitor is roughly 1/2 FTE (almost half of an employee's time).
  • LogicMonitor is not ideal for all cloud scenarios - it is driven but a collector that runs on a given Windows or Linux host. The collector is reliable, but it is "self-hosted" at each site. The central portal is SaaS cloud managed by LogicMonitor.
  • LogicMonitor is not a cybersecurity product, although it can help identify performance or misconfigurations.

We use LogicMonitor for both internal uses, within our Hosting and cloud environments. The two largest benefits we have seen are Time to deployment and Technical Support. Our company often acquires other companies. With LogicMonitor I can have them added to our monitoring solution literally within 1 day. If I do run into any issues, the 24x7 availability to get an engineer on chat is great and they resolve my issues 95% of the time without the need to escalate the case.
  • Rapid Deployment
  • Out of the box threasholds
  • Auto detecting Server/services that need to be monitored with little or no manual configuration
  • LMLogs is a new feature they are working on that lets you correlate event logs with alerts. Great idea but they still have a little ways to go to make it user-friendly.
  • Reporting needs some work. Especially around configuration reporting.
If you want to be able to roll out monitoring and do not want to manually have to specify each item to be monitored, wasting days or weeks then you really should look at LogicMonitor. On top of that, LogicMonitor is very customizable allowing you to create custom data sources to be monitored. LogicMonitor is not an APM, though I hear that is coming out very soon.

We used LogicMonitor to manage a customer's network as part of a managed services engagement. The client was in manufacturing and had eight global locations.
  • Generate Alerts to Support Team.
  • Support Multiple Types of Equipment.
  • Provided ability to verify status.
  • Required more senior technical knowledge to set up and manage.
  • Not friendly from an outside MSP business arrangement standpoint (scalability) of licenses, etc).
  • Lack of ability to integrate with common MSP tools (E.g. PSA, documentation platform).
The product did what it was was supposed to do. However, it is more suited to large enterprises with dedicated IT staff. We would not recommend the product to someone in the MSP space. We have found that tools like Auvik are easier to learn, most cost-effective, are friendly from a licensing standpoint, and integrate well with common tools like a PSA/RMM platform. We have found that Auvik was able to provide superior performance to LogicMonitor and a more attractive price point (as an MSP).

I use LogicMonitor for our infrastructure monitoring servers, network and clusters. LogicMonitor features and designs aids with [the] challenging issues [we have with] our on-prem monitor and alert [system]. Additionally, LogicMonitor was able to give us visibility to all the infra components and [the finer] details of alerting.
  • Granual visibility on resources component health
  • Cloud solution
  • Excellent Dashboards and integrations
  • Collector dependencies
  • Licencensing
We have used other tools for our infra monitoring specifically for Vmware cluster where we were surprised with the number of sensor count usage for each component on a resource. With LogicMonitor, one sensor per host was able to pull/monitor all the components on the hosts including VM's which was a huge saving.

We are using LogicMonitor for end to end IT Infrastructure monitoring. Coverage of LogicMonitor is increasing day by day due to its capability and enhanced performance. We do network monitoring, server monitoring, database monitoring, applications fault and basic performance monitoring, logs monitoring and much more.
NOC Team, IT infrastructure team, Management personas are using LogicMonitor console for day and day out events.
  • Fault and performance monitoring.
  • Cloud services monitoring.
  • Dynamic threshold.
  • Anomaly detection.
  • Reporting for large environment.
  • Topology mapping.
  • Network automation.
LogicMonitor is well suited if someone is looking for one complete solution for all types of infrastructure such as Networks, Servers (Windows, Linux), Storage, VMWare, Logs, Website and Cloud Services Monitoring.
It also provide out of the box integration with Service Now and hence this makes ticketing easy. Dashboard and Reports are also wonderful.

LogicMonitor is being used to monitor my environment which includes everything from my networking devices, websites, VMware farm, Windows servers, printers, access points, etc. We originally had multiple software that monitored SCOM, WhatsUp Gold, PRTG; and we wanted to consolidate our monitoring solutions. This is a product that the IT department uses independently outside of the business.
  • Easy setup and basic monitoring configuration.
  • Reduced load on the environment due to it using a proxy server rather than agents.
  • Externally accessible web interface that integrates with Azure IDP and can leverage MFA.
  • Support

LogicMonitor is a great and easy to use monitoring software. It is not a heavy utilization product or an agent based product which allows you to isolate it from the environment. It is great for basic monitoring. Because it can leverage API's, it can read Active Directory as well as configs on switches.

LogicMonitor as a monitoring tool can help us understand where the problem is. We can address outstanding tickets through our email support. It is also used to generate availability reports and usage reports for our managers and general managers. Thanks to this, we can have our physical and virtual infrastructure at its best performance.
  • A great platform that allows you to set up and collect actionable data in minutes.
  • It has a very intuitive user interface, is cloud-based, and does not require much maintenance.
  • Its control panel is straightforward to customize and adapt.
  • To make the application easier to use, if you don't find what you need, you can create your modules, as its panel can generate them and display them on the monitor in a few clicks.
  • Device logging should be more specific.
  • Add more straightforward options to monitor logs.
LogicMonitor is a relatively easy platform to implement in any company; it does not require the supervision of agents at the endpoints of its implementation; it has support that will help you in every detail you need. It is very suitable for large and medium environments; you can monitor the most modern computer systems with very flexible and complete tools and options.

We monitor our on-premise infrastructure (VMs, networking devices, EVX machines) with LogicMonitor. We use it across the whole IT department in the USA, Israel, and China. About 600 VMs are being monitored with LogicMonitor.
  • Monitoring physical devices.
  • Monitoring network devices.
  • Alarming for the VM issues.
  • The interface is not very intuitive.
  • Integration with other tools.
  • Support cloud-base infra.
Monitoring VMs, physical devices, and networking infrastructure are very well suited. We tried to use it for monitoring our AWS and Alibaba infrastructure and found it's not very useful for cloud base use cases, hence we stick to using it only for physical on-prem infrastructure.
Fast support we receive from LogicMonitor support engineers.
Need to improve the interface since it is not very intuitive and we have to spend a lot of time training our NOC and operations engineers.

We are currently using LogicMonitor for our network monitoring needs, especially after moving away from SW. Our whole IT department is using this software and it provides visibility to our entire network. A big reason why we chose LogicMonitor was the ability to integrate multiple device vendors we had in our environment.
  • Ability to monitor various device vendors.
  • Programmatic with many APIs and code customizations.
  • Easily digestible dashboards.
  • Can be overwhelming with the customizations.
LogicMonitor is great at monitoring and providing an easily digestible view of our entire network. Their ability to monitor and provide traffic analysis for various device vendors made it a separator from its competition. The task that we couldn't do with LM was the ability to push configurations to certain devices, it was more for monitoring and quickly making business decisions on the data it gathered.
We have not fully utilized Customer Support yet but I'm basing this score off the initial kick off to onboard LogicMonitor into our environment.
Once you have your dashboards set it is amazing. To get to that point can be overwhelming because the amount of customizations that can be added to the dashboards are quite extensive. This is a good thing as every customer cares about different metrics and information but at first glance it can be challenging.

LogicMonitor is being used by out IT Operations team to monitor our IT infrastructure. This provides line of sight, logging, and alerting for issues related to our servers, networks, and applications.
  • Extensive monitoring capabilities for a wide variety of hardware.
  • Monitoring and alerting thresholds can easily be templated and applied to numerous endpoints quickly.
  • Alerting methods and integrations with 3rd party software is open and easily configured.
  • Upfront setup will take some time.
LogicMonitor has exceeded our needs over the past 7 years. Now that the system is finely tuned, alert fatigue has declined and my team can better focus on what actually matters.
The support team at LogicMonitor has always gone above and beyond when we've needed their assistance. From troubleshooting, to how-to's, to assisting with building our custom needs - they're great!
We've yet to find a use case that LogicMonitor couldn't handle for us.

We have been using LogicMonitor for network tracking across our 130 stores. We use this in place of a full fledged NOC in order to see who is up and down and to monitor VPN Tunnel uptime for our POS System. It is mainly used by myself and the IT Department.
  • Dashboards are very customizable.
  • Implementation is very straight forward and simple.
  • Implementation team is very helpful in getting you started.
  • Integrated with most every kind of hardware we could throw at it.
  • Alerting is tough to get tuned properly and not overwhelm with nonsense alerts.
  • Seems to uninstall itself or stop the service randomly on Windows which is problematic.
  • Unable to track the VPN Tunnel uptime properly, using a script gets some info but it's inaccurate which makes it worthless.
This product would be good for a team that can spend a large amount of time prepping it and fine tuning it. Using this in replacement of a NOC is a bit cumbersome as it needs a lot of care to get it working fully. The Azure integration is very well done and simple to get started.
Their support team is very quickly available and ready to assist. They have a great training program to get you started and their engineers are very good at fixing problems for you quickly. The implementations team gives a white glove approach to rollout and makes sure you are set up and have a baseline understanding of the product before purchasing which was helpful.
The product is good on a few things it does but not great at everything. Adding in new data sources is a hit or miss and doesn't pull data properly all the time.

Good AIOPS monitoring tool. We are using it for Data Network/Voice/Wireless controllers monitoring for specific client. No need to manage DC due to SAAS based model. License cost is low with compare to other monitoring tools and there are enhanced features. Reports can be generated based on the collected data so no need of separate reporting tool to fulfill the customer requirement.
  • Agentless monitoring.
  • One unified monitoring solution.
  • License cost is low compare to other competitors.
  • No need to maintain LogicMonitor since it's hosted in SAAS.
  • Need to enhance OOB reporting as it requires more manual effort to create custom reports.
One unified monitoring tool for complete infrastructure monitoring solution. It's good due to agentless monitoring feature so no need to install client servers/devices. It works based on collectors so we just need take care of collectors. It has functionality of both monitoring data and reporting data thus the license cost is less compare to other competitors.
Quick support response and solution.
Good response.

We use LogicMonitor to monitor uptime for each of our 50+ sites across the globe. It's primarily used by each division's IT staff to keep up with bandwidth usage, netflow statistics, and server alerts. We've recently started to integrate the LM Logs and Configuration monitoring into our system. This has drastically helped in reducing troubleshooting time for issues.
  • Alerts and Escalation Chains
  • Netflow Metrics
  • Configuration Change Comparison
  • Could use more reporting options
  • Waiting on the addition of BGP neighbors in mapping
  • New UI rollout is taking a while
This has been a wonderful replacement for SolarWinds. The GUI is more user-friendly and the dashboards present eye-pleasing graphics for those who come by and see them up on displays. The flexibility of the alerts and escalation chains is definitely a plus. This has allowed us to tailor alerts for each of our division's needs.
Opening tickets has been consistently easy and I have always gotten quick responses. Using the support chat has been equally easy and quick. Support techs are able to access your instance and see the issues you're having. Support from our CSM has been great too. They are proactive in letting me know if I'm coming close to my licensing limit and any requests I have usually come back within a day or two.
Set up is super easy. Just stand up a small Linux or Windows server to act as a collector. There are no agents to install on monitored devices and all you need is SNMP or WMI access. When creating dashboards, all you have to do is find the widget on the device you want to show up and choose the menu option to add it.

We have been using LogicMonitor to meet all of our enterprise logging and monitoring needs across the enterprise for over 5 years now and it has been instrumental in allowing us to remain operationally effective and secure while limiting headcount. System uptime and reliability would not be anywhere near where they are today without this platform.
  • Ease of setup
  • Intuitive interface
  • Reliable results
  • Cost
LogicMonitor is ideal for a large-scale enterprise environment to help justify the spending.
Excellent support, highly competitive SLAs, and super responsive.
Our admins and engineers love the ease of use and flexibility of the platform as a whole. We have been able to scale as an organization and company without increasing engineering and admin headcount in this space which is a blessing. The team has never been happier or more productive!

We use LogicMonitor for all of our infrastructure monitoring. We have two data centers on the east coast, and two satellite offices. All sites and services are monitored by LogicMonitor.
  • Text notifications for alerts.
  • Monitoring of cloud services like Office 365.
  • I don't have anything at this time that should be done differently, we are happy with the product.
LogicMonitor is the best monitoring platform I've used. We transitioned from WhatsUpGold and SolarWinds. We are very happy with the LogicMonitor platform.
The chat support online is very good. We instantly have access to support engineers to assist with our issues.

We are using LogicMonitor to replace SolarWinds in our environment. LogicMonitor is monitoring our on-prem and cloud infrastructure. SolarWinds continually missed alerts or generated false positives and after the breach they had in 2021, we knew it was time to go to market to find a new solution. We checked other vendors out, like Datadog, but ultimately decided to go with LogicMonitor.
  • Alert tuning.
  • Auto discovery of new infrastructure.
  • Ease of use.
  • Better interface.
LogicMonitor has met our needs and we were able to replace SolarWinds in our environment.
Their support is the best.
It's pretty easy to use and if you don't know how to do something their support is fantastic.

LogicMonitor addressed our needs to replace SolarWinds. We were looking for a new product that still gave us great management features, but also allowed us to better manage and monitor our edge switches. We limit the use of the product to our engineer team which is small, less than 5. The NOC dashboards features have been a great add for our team.
  • Very detailed with scan settings, easy to setup.
  • No agent required to monitor devices.
  • Network load is minimal based on traffic it sends for monitoring.
  • Alerting can be cumbersome to setup at first.
  • Recommend startup services with purchase, expensive but good.
  • Cost per device can add up.
The main feature product still lacks to compete fully with a SolarWinds is push of config changes. This is not a deal-breaker but would be of great help. The dashboards and alerting can be very detailed and flood you or give you the simple alerts you are looking for.
The sales team support we received was top notch. They worked hand in hand to make sure the product met all expectations. So far we have not really had to work with support that much; we have worked with setup team after purchase to deploy product fully. No issues so far and we are four weeks in.
Very easy to use once initial setup is complete. Interface is clean and if you set up product groupings and dynamic groups and dashboards it will improve your overall experience. LogicMonitor is the first item I check each day when I get into the office. It's clean and lets me see issues I need to address.

LogicMonitor is being used to monitor critical systems (application servers) and our critical network gear. It is being used by the IT Department for the monitoring of critical systems. It currently addresses issues of system outages, network outages, expiration of certificates, and troubleshooting the reasoning for issues within our environment.
  • Automatically adds and inventories servers properly.
  • Simple build-out for dashboards.
  • Simple configuration for overall views.
  • Agentless monitoring.
  • Complex configuration for specific items.
  • API to third-party applications could be better.
  • Faster reporting.
I believe that LogicMonitor is well suited for monitoring virtual environments. You can add an entire cluster and virtual servers. This allows you to be able to look at issues from two different perspectives, overall virtual environment level, and more specific to the servers themselves. We also utilize the "Multi-Ping" functionality from the collector. This helps because you can add an instance to make sure that a device is up, even when you are not able to add the device (ie. third-party devices that you do not have access to, but can ping on your network).
I believe that the community portal is very good. I have been able to find what I needed, 90% of the time. The other 10% of the time, I have placed a ticket and was able to get the issue (or configuration) resolved, with the knowledge from the technician that I was assigned.
I have had a couple of issues getting something added and monitored the "exact" way that I have wanted to in the past. I feel like the last monitoring tool that I used (at a different organization) had an easier setup, with more capability.

We are using LogicMonitor to monitor our server infrastructure. This is currently being used by our Server and Cloud team to monitor CPU, Memory, Disk usage, last reboot time, server online, server reachable.

We had three problems we wanted to solve with a monitoring solution:
-Stop managing the monitoring software and start using the software.
-Get valuable data on our environment.
-Get useful alerts on our environment.

LogicMonitor helped us reach each of those goals.
  • The built-in alerts are fantastic. By default all alerts are enabled. You can fine tune each alert as needed.
  • The deployment was quick. Within 4 hours I had about 90% of our environment configured in LogicMonitor.
  • The UI is quick.
  • The support and POC team are fantastic. They helped us learn about the product and helped us configure the solution for our environment.
  • The UI is quick, but it did take a little bit of time to get use to the UI.
  • Some tasks are not obvious on how to configure like getting WMI configured.
  • The UI is a little inconsistent throughout some of the pages.
LogicMonitor is great for AWS and Azure resources. You're able to pull info from each respective API.

For our environment, we use Windows and poll the bulk of our resources with WMI. We were specifically looking for Memory, CPU, Disk space, and last reboot time. LogicMonitor gets all this data that was a requirement for our solution. We're just scratching the surface on what LogicMonitor can poll for.

Now that we are capturing all these metrics, we're able to get useful alerts for those metrics. I found roughly 50 issues within our environment that simply went unnoticed because we were not looking for it. But LogicMonitor found the issues, and brought it up to our attention.

We're also able to see live metrics on our systems. We've already made data backed changes to increase our workflow on some of our applications.
I have meetings with LogicMonitor every other week to discuss the solution and how it's been performing for us.I bring my list of questions and goals I want to get accomplished and we work through them together.

During the initial implementation, I sent an email to our support group after hours to help get some clarity on on implementation. When I got in the following morning I already had an email response and the tech jumped into our environment and setup and example to follow.
It polls everything we need for our Windows server environment. We're able to make changes to the systems before problems occur based on the trends LogicMonitor is seeing.

After using the product for a week, I had a good understanding on how to leverage the product to fit the needs of my environment.

We actually have two instances of LogicMonitor. One is for internal IT systems, the other is "externally" facing - so I guess you could say almost our whole organization uses it. My team manages and uses the internal instance. As such, we use it to monitor our internal systems and alert us at different thresholds.
  • Alerting
  • Customization
  • Integration
  • Jargon is a bit hard to wrap head around
  • User management could be streamlined better
  • GUI needs improvement
It's great if you need a pretty robust monitoring system. I actually haven't used any other monitoring applications, so I have little to compare it to, but I think that says something. I don't think it would be great in a little mom and pop shop with limited manpower. I just think it would take too long to set up and maintain if there are bigger fish to fry. Medium-large enterprises would be great.
I've been pretty pleased with the attention and prompts I've received. I have had colleagues who have had a bit more of a difficult time getting the support they desired, but no complaints from me. I will say, the documentation is pretty thorough, so I don't often have to submit support requests.
I like how robust it is, but with the robustness comes quite a learning curve in terms of sources, organization, and alerting. Once you get those down and understand them, it should be pretty quick to get the rest of your infrastructure into your LogicMonitor instance. The GUI is not the best. If you're not in LogicMonitor everyday, jumping back in and trying to remember how to navigate is a bit frustrating.

LogicMonitor is used to monitor IT operations systems and services. We moved from SCOM so that the TEAM could have an easier experience managing the basic service monitoring environment and have reliable alert notifications with escalation.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Easy to tune monitors.
  • Easy to collect data and push to cloud.
  • Quick to setup.
  • Support is awesome!
  • Better Microsoft Teams Integration with cards that have escalate, Ack, STD, comments buttons.
  • Customization of built-in email notifications without setting up Integration.
  • ESX password confirmation.
  • Standardized rest API authentication for 3rd party dashboarding like from SquaredUp.
  • Improved error notification for events that show "no data."
Basic monitoring of servers and services has served us well. These are the basic availability monitoring of CPU, memory, disk, and connectivity. More advanced Microsoft Services from on-prem ADDS to Azure AD Health have not been very good or UCS Hardware or even the awareness of Hyper-V Clusters. Vcenter monitoring could be improved around instance monitoring.
The support is truly pretty easy to initiate and get support. The techs are all on the same level in terms of support or they're just all knowledgeable about the product.
Overall, the management of the tool is really simple and intuitive. It can get a bit complex once you start tweaking and tuning data sources, setting up the "resources" and working with vCenter Proxy Monitoring using instances.

LogicMonitor is used for 3 large IT departments to monitor, alert and report on IT device (server, switches, IoT devices, websites) health. LM provides a strong platform for customizations to alert types and event actions, which allows for broad adoption across campus.
  • Dashboard visibility by area of discipline.
  • Alert notification and escalation.
  • Cloud monitoring.
  • Pricing process and pressure from sales.
LogicMonitor provides a very strong platform that can be customized for nearly every possible scenario.
Solid team with well built-in tech support from the console.
Outstanding UI with custom dashboards that can be built quickly and distributed.

It is used for firm-wide monitoring alone with few other cloud-based solutions. The network team uses it for all device monitor, configuration tracking, and some network automation.
  • You can run python code to do certain things which are not possible in other monitoring vendors.
  • Easy to navigate the GUI.
  • Low cost.
  • Upgrade was buggy once a while. The GUI is not actually as good as before.
  • Data can go missing. We lost data and went nowhere with support.
  • Very lacking in terms of netflow, too limited for a mid-size firm. The number of flows per box is too low and data can be completely off. We cannot trust the NetFlow report.
  • Support is not the best for sure. Alot of problems were not resolved until escalation to senior management.
Automation and cloud-based monitoring can be very useful. We can set up all kinds of tests from each office and from AWS to test network performance and detect issues.
had quite few issues got run around by them. Had to escalate often.
LogicMonitor overall is a good product. We used SolarWinds and CA before. LogicMonitor is definitely better than both of them.
