LogicMonitor provides the operational insight that each remote machine is fully deployed and functional. Cedexis' Senior Operations Engineer, Josh Cody, stated "LogicMonitor's active discovery and SNMP polling checks are hugely important to our deployment operations. We install the collector agent and almost immediately can say 'Whoa! Why are there extra ports open on that device!' Then we can dive in and tune things to ensure a fully secure deployment."
Once the new machine is no longer required, Puppet then removes the device from LogicMonitor as part of the take-down procedures.
