This is useful if you want to be notified when you go over some desired quantity. For example, if your subscription commitment is 100 devices, you might send yourself a “warning” alert at 95 devices and “critical” alert at 99 devices.
It might also be useful if you have a “child accounts” which are additional LogicMonitor accounts that are entirely separate but get billed to the same person/company.


It’s a Datasource using a Groovy script which uses the REST API to get a list of all devices in your account. Fortunately, a total quantity of devices is also included in the API response. Maybe someday I will enhance it to give an alert when a device is added or deleted. To minimize load and because it usually doesn’t change rapidly, I set the collection interval to the max of 60 minutes.

  1. If you haven’t already, create a separate LogicMonitor user account (called for example “api.user”) and generate the API Token so you can use the API commands. Normally, I recommend you create a separate role with ‘manage’ permissions to “devices” (ie not dashboards, services, settings, reports, etc) but this particular datasource only needs ‘read only’ permissions.
  2. Set the following properties. For simplicity, I recommend you set them on the ‘root/base’ folder so it’s seen by any devices you apply this datasource to. = <the cryptic looking ID that you generated in step1>
    rest.api.key = <the cryptic looking key that you generated in step1>
    account = <the part of your URL before; usually your company name>
  3. Download the datasource file and add it to your company account via Settings > Datasource > Add > From file.
  4. Apply this datasource to any one of your servers. For simplicity, I suggest you apply it to one of your collectors.
  5. If desired, set an alert threshold and you might want a special Alert Rule and Escalation Chain to notify a person or group of people if it goes over a threshold.
  6. Test by waiting 1-3 minutes for the first poll/run then look at ‘Raw Data’ tab to make sure you see what you expect.
