Troubleshoot network issues with Performance Analysis dashboards

With complex networks consisting of cloud, hybrid IT, virtualization, storage area networks, and so on, multi-faceted IT issues can be difficult to pinpoint and diagnose. When an issue surfaces, for example a badly performing application or server, the investigation can take significant time to locate the core issue. The problem could be in storage, network connectivity, user access, or a mix of resources and configurations.

To investigate the issue, create troubleshooting projects with the Performance Analysis (PerfStack™) dashboard that visually correlate historical and real-time data from multiple SolarWinds products and entity types in a single view.

With Performance Analysis dashboards, you can do the following:

  • Compare and analyze multiple metric types in a single view, including status, events, and statistics.
  • Compare and analyze metrics for multiple entities in a single view, including, nodes, interfaces, volumes, applications, and more.
  • Correlate data from across the Orion Platform on a single, shared time line.
  • Visualize hybrid data for on-premises, cloud, and everything in between.
  • Share a troubleshooting project with your teams and experts to review historical data for an issue.

PerfStack is designed for expert users to quickly sift through data. If you need help to select relevant metrics or more automated troubleshooting, consider using AppStack or NetPath™.

The following sections provide troubleshooting examples for Orion Platform products from the network management group.
