What is ScienceLogic SL1?

The ScienceLogic SL1 platform aims to enable companies to digitally transform themselves by removing the difficulty of managing complex, distributed IT services. SL1 uses patented discovery techniques to find everything in a network, so users get visibility across all technologies and vendors running anywhere in data centers or clouds. The vendor states the advantage of SL1 is that it collects and analyzes millions of data points across an IT universe (made up of infrastructure, network, applications, and business services), to help users make sense of it all, share data, and automate IT processes.


With SL1, the user can:

  • See everything across cloud and distributed architectures. Discover all IT components—–across physical, virtual, and cloud. Collect, merge, and store a variety of data in a clean, normalized data lake.
  • Contextualize data through relationship mapping and machine learning (ML) for actionable insights. Use this context to understand the impact of infrastructure and applications on business service health and risk, accelerate root cause analysis, and execute recommended actions.
  • Act on data that is shared across technologies and IT ecosystem in real time. Apply multi-directional integrations to automate workflows at cloud scale.

  • Business services - we are just starting to use the business services section, but the idea of transitioning from a device monitoring paradigm to a service monitoring paradigm sites right where we need it as a managed service provider. Our customers don't usually care too much about specific monitored events in one particular room as those are remediated locally and with our help desk support, which they are generally pleased with. What they really want is to have metrics that comprise 'services' and to see how that service is doing on a monthly basis. We are looking into the SL1 business services feature to do just that.
  • DCM - the device component mapping function in SL1 is really neat and compelling for most customers. I have not seen this type of breakdown of nested or component devices to describe a room or conglomerate system in any other apps.

  • We've found ways to discover managed services on client assets and populate attributes in the CMDB for reporting and billing.
  • Reporting: we've been able to ETL data from Silo and provide reports to the client in ways that give the client a bigger picture of their environment and top items that need to be addressed.

  • This question is ambiguous. As stated, it suggests that we might have found an unexpected or innovative way which ScienceLogic (the platform) is used which surprises us. The reality is that we are driving how ScienceLogic is used and we are surprising ScienceLogic (the company) with our scale and Enterprise Use Case specifications and articulations. The remainder of the questions will answer from a company perspective, not a product perspective.
  • #multitenancy - Enterprise Use Case wants to share many data elements in a read-only way to the IT world. As originally deployed, 8.3 > 8.11 suffers from Managed Service Provider Use Case where Organizations are expected to be 100% independent from each other with no read rights and no world implications. 8.12 delivers our first glimpse of how we will allow a more seamless Enterprise Use Case experience by allowing configuration of a WORLD rights permission that grants read (but not write; as is the case in 8.9 and prior) permissions to device configuration and performance data.
  • We have 467 Organizations with some 2200 users. Many in multiple organizations.
  • IT Services have been how we folded our host clusters onto Science Logic stacks. We've been involved in early discussions about Device Services and Business Services and as those become tangible in the platform we will provide our feedback based on issues we find due to our scale.
  • Given 467 Organizations and some 2200 Users, we found that pre-generating Critical Ping Failure and Availability runbook automations and actions and external contacts so that all of our teams had a starting point in the platform was a surprise to use as a mechanism whereby we provide base training to our end-users in the RBA space. Our statement is these are yours. Play with them. Learn from them. Delete them if you need clean copies and we will regenerate those for you.
  • Our use of ServiceNow as our upstream CMDB with monitoring configuration paint being applied downstream has been a great boon to us. This allows our operations teams to force a repaint to clean up problem configurations without concern to multi-master issues. We consistently find that SyncServer and Integration Server use cases are inverted for us in that ScienceLogic pushes to ServiceNow and a hand-wave on whether or not ServiceNow does its own discovery (thereby creating a multi-master problem).
