LogicMonitor Introduces Integrations With Puppet Labs and Atlassian's HipChat

Date 2013/8/23 8:54:30 | Topic: Product News

LogicMonitor, the leading cloud-based IT infrastructure performance monitoring solution, today announced new IT automation capabilities along with key monitoring integrations with Puppet Labs' technologies and Atlassian HipChat to further enhance its platform for use by Software Development and IT Operations teams.

LogicMonitor's latest integrations are with Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software, and Atlassian's HipChat, a private chat service for companies and teams. Integration with Puppet Labs allows users of both products to configure, deploy and manage their performance monitoring directly from Puppet Labs' popular configuration management tool. Integration with Atlassian's HipChat allows LogicMonitor users to instantly send application and infrastructure performance and availability alerts to specified chat rooms.

Together, the new features and integrations are part of LogicMonitor's ongoing objective to provide complete automation to IT infrastructure performance monitoring.

A new product feature unveiled this week, dubbed "OpsNotes," allows LogicMonitor users to annotate performance graphs with customized notes, flags, and tags to expedite troubleshooting and otherwise keep track of application deployment changes. The user-defined and searchable OpsNotes can be used for application deployment events such as benchmarking the time of an application release, allowing Development and Ops teams to easily identify events resulting from changes in the deployed application infrastructure.

"LogicMonitor's OpsNotes is a great addition to an already powerful performance monitoring platform," says Steve Francis, Founder & Chief Product Officer at LogicMonitor. "Instead of wasting time trying to figure out which issue impacted performance of an app release, the specific cause is immediately apparent via an OpsNote in LogicMonitor. We built LogicMonitor to help teams automate the tuning and performance of their infrastructure. The DevOps notion of 'configure, deploy, monitor' fits well with LogicMonitor's DNA. We look forward to showing Puppet Labs users how to use our platform to automate their monitoring."
