Server Reboots

Does LogicMonitor have the ability to schedule automated reboots of Windows Servers AND provide notifications if/when a scheduled restart fails?  Currently using DesktopCentral to schedule groups of servers to reboot on different days/times but it is limited in regards to notifications/reporting.  If for whatever reason, ServerA does not reboot, no one knows unless you manually check.  It would be great if I could schedule a server, (or group of servers), to be rebooted at a certain day&time and if for some reason one of them doesn't or can't reboot, a notification is sent out informing someone that it did not reboot.

  • Hey,

    We don't (at this time...) have that type of functionality built into the platform. However, one idea that might help is to set an alert threshold for "too much uptime." In other words, if you're patching a group of resources once a month, and the servers should be rebooted at least that often, clone an uptime datasource, apply it to the subset of servers you want, and set an alert threshold on "uptime greater than thirty days."

    One could probably do some creative things with scripting, DataSources, and the collector; but given that we're talking about rebooting servers, I recommend being exceedingly cautious with any efforts in that area. :)/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20">
