SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) leverages out-of-the-box templates to monitor the components of your servers and applications and to display statistics on intuitive and meaningful dashboards. SolarWinds provides end-to-end coverage for monitoring your server health and performance for the following elements:
The Real-Time Process Explorer (RTPE) is available for WMI- and SNMP-monitored nodes and is similar to the Processes tab found in the Windows Task Manager. The advantage of the RTPE is that you no longer need to log in to a particular machine physically or remotely to retrieve that machine's vital statistics via the Task Manager. Information for both monitored and unmonitored processes is displayed directly through SolarWinds SAM. This allows you to diagnose server performance issues quickly by providing real-time troubleshooting information within the SolarWinds SAM web console.
With the Real-Time Process Explorer, you can monitor:
SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) gives you the ability to configure powerful alert engines quickly and easily to respond to hundreds of different scenarios including multiple condition checks. These advanced application alerting capabilities help you recognize and correct issues before your users experience any degradation in performance or availability issues. Additionally, SolarWinds SAM can automatically escalate alerts until a problem is resolved or acknowledged.
SolarWinds SAM includes more than 16 built-in alert delivery methods and responses including email, pages, SNMP traps, SMS/text messages, syslog messages, and the execution of a script.
SolarWinds SAM supports monitoring hardware from VMware hosts, Hewlett-Packard (HP) ProLiant, Dell PowerEdge, and the IBM X-Series servers. SolarWinds SAM achieves hardware monitoring by polling nodes and utilizing the Hardware Monitoring Agent software provided by the hardware manufacturer.
SolarWinds SAM can monitor the following hardware elements:
With SolarWinds SAM, you can monitor anything from a hardware layer to a virtual machine to a guest OS and its processes. This ability gives you a holistic view of server health. Leveraging the VMware API, you can monitor virtually any statistic for your VMware ESX and ESXi environment to include CPU, memory utilization, percent ready, and network I/O.
Automatic application discovery and dependency mapping.
Unified server and application monitoring across private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.
Built-in templates provide best practices.
