Monitor and manage .NET applications right out of the box with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM). You can monitor heap size, threads, connections, and many other performance statistics to ensure high availability of your Microsoft .NET applications.
Monitor performance, availability, and usage statistics of your Microsoft .NET application servers and the business-critical applications running on them with the powerful dashboards included in SAM.
Key performance metrics available in the SolarWinds SAM monitor for Microsoft .NET application servers include:
Dynamic Service Groups allow you to categorize and monitor complex, multi-tiered applications—.NET application server, IIS web server, and SQL database—by easily grouping them into specific categories such as location, department, or service. This provides powerful ways to collect the status of individual servers and applications, discover root-cause for performance degradation, and alert when a single server or cluster of servers that belongs to the group goes down.
Dynamic Service Groups reduce redundant alerts by understanding dependencies among configuration items. For example, the virtual machines on a server will not fire alerts if the host is also down.
SAM offers Java availability and performance history with built-in and customizable reports. You can use historical trend reports to tune your Microsoft .NET applications proactively and to determine whether clusters should be load-balanced or if heap size needs to be adjusted according to transaction response times. The graphs and reports can be generated quickly and viewed on a custom-defined hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis. You can generate different reports based on the resource type:
Quickly modify reporting for a department or recipient and automate a report delivery via email using the advanced Application Reporting Engine.
Automatic application discovery and dependency mapping.
Unified server and application monitoring across private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.
Built-in templates provide best practices.
