Managing Nodes and Groups

You can manage nodes and groups from the Settings page.

  • Manage Nodes: Click Manage Nodes on the Settings page to add, view, and manage all nodes and resources managed or monitored by your installation.
  • Manage Groups: Click Manage Groups on the Settings page to create, delete, and modify groups. Groups give you the ability to logically organize monitored objects, regardless of device type or location. Groups contain SolarWinds objects that report a status such as nodes, volumes, applications, and even other groups.

Nesting one group within another group does not create a strict parent/child relationship. You can include any group as a member in any number of other groups.
