I used this DataSource when I used LogicMonitor to warn me when it was almost time to retire a device. e.g. we kept servers for 5 years. I set it to alert me 90 days in advance and 30 days in advance. This helped me with my annual budget to plan for expenses.



  1. Download this DataSource file and import into your LogicMonitor account (Settings > DataSources > Add > From file)
  2. Set a property on each device for the retirement date named ‘date_to_retire’ and use the format YYYY-MM-DD.
  3. Test by looking at the ‘Raw Data’ tab to make sure it shows correct ‘days_until_retirement’
  4. If desired, create a report of the type ‘Resource Metric Trends’ as shown in video.
