Uptime 7.8 and as far as I know back to 7.6.
When adding tags to ICMP monitors they do not show up as drop down fields on the top right. This can be duplicated by uncommenting the tags in the ICMP example and change the IP. Changing the monitor to TCP with the same tags works perfect. This is not a very elegant solution. They are also not searchable.
For example we want a single ping to see if a switch is online nothing fancy. We have over 500 of them active at a single site. With each "Cisco switch" sending it's basics logs to same elastic cluster as the uptime is running in. Yes it should be separate no we wont split it. Cost and resources allocation along with management overhead isn't worth the time. No we can not and will not used a hosted version. Switching to TCP on each one now opens a connection which is then logged in the switch and sent to syslog. This has gone from a couple hundred events an hour to 170,000 hour making the syslog next to unusable when searching for a username on who logged in. You end up with " " for SSH.
I'm able to duplicate the missing tags in ICMP monitors in 4 different clusters. Something as simple as tags: [switch] fails. Setting under fields_under_root has no effect either but works for TCP/HTTP monitors.
Am I missing something specific to ICMP or has it not been implemented yet?
Uptime makes the boss man happy. Making him remember to type a search command when a drop down box is present makes him go why do we use this... Drop down boxes are your friend on a simple dashboard.
