Are you Disappointed with LogicMonitor's Network Mapping and Config Backup?

It is common for us to talk with LogicMonitor clients that are disappointed with the functionality and user interactions available with LogicMonitor’s network maps. These clients have mentioned that fixes have been promised for a year with no results. These clients have then reached out to us to see the what UVexplorer can do for them.

LOGICMONITOR

LogicMonitor is based in Santa Monica, CA, and has ten locations globally. Their software is a cloud-based performance monitoring platform for networks, servers, VMs, SD-WANs, databases, website, container storage and configurations. Their focus is on alerting, dashboards, and trend analysis.

Unfortunately, the network mapping space is a difficult feature to support, maintain and monetize. Due to the cat and mouse game of hardware/manufacturer/firmware support that’s required to accurately create topologies it is no surprise that companies fall behind in their diagram presentation and functionality.

  • Deployment: LogicMonitor is a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution and is deployed in the cloud. It does require ‘data collectors’ to be installed on-premise which report to the cloud.

  • Integration: Offers integration with various third-party tools, including ticketing systems, chat applications, and cloud platforms.

  • Network Discovery & Mapping: While LogicMonitor can discover devices and generate topology maps. It has been known to lack functionality and features.

  • Customization & Extensibility: Extensive customization available for dashboards, alerts and reports.

  • Pricing: Billed monthly per monitored device.

  • Ease of Use: User-friendly interface and easy to set up and scale.

  • Support & Documentation:  Good customer support, webinars, and training materials
