Systems Management

Server & Application Monitor

When the system or application fails, finding the root cause of it before it impacts the user is critical. That is where SolarWinds® Server & Application Monitor (SAM) comes into play. SAM is designed to monitor your applications and their

supporting infrastructure, whether running on-premises, in the cloud or a hybrid environment. It provides a deeper insight into application and server availability and performance, thereby allowing you to take actions immediately. Don’t let slow applications and downtime impact your end-users and business services.

  • Get monitoring templates for over 1200+ application, system, infrastructure, and cloud templates, including Windows®, Linux®, Java®, Active Directory®, SharePoint®, Citrix®, Office 365®, and more. You can also use it to monitor any custom or home-made applications.
  • Map the application dependency on infrastructure with the built-in AppStack™ dashboard. It is curated to provide a contextual view of how applications are linked to other components within the IT infrastructure, including servers, virtual machines, and storage arrays.

Server Configuration Monitor

In modern IT environments, it becomes especially crucial to monitor for configuration changes, maintain the availability, performance, and security of your services. Without the right tool, it would be hard to regulate all the configuration changes

happening to your servers and applications.Solarwinds Server Configuration Monitor is designed to instantly report server and application configuration change,who changed them, how they were changed, and if the change affected performance. This way, you can keep a close tab on all the changes and reach the root cause of the problem faster, improve security, and demonstrate compliance.

  • With the ever-changing system and application, it becomes impossible to keep a track on all the changes that are important for the availability and performance of the servers, applications, and services. SCM offers Real-time Detection and Tracking of system & application changes, keeping you aware of the configuration, performance changes, and more.
  • Get alert of the changes made offline with SCM. When the configuration changes to your server and if the server is disconnected from the network at that time, SCM detects and alerts you when the server is online again.
  • When the SCM is integrated with Orion® Platform products, it is capable of correlating changes in the server and application configuration with their availability and performance, thereby making it easier to pinpoint the root cause of the problem.
  • SCM makes it easy to manage your hardware and software inventory information up to date by automatically discovering your servers and application for you.
  • With SCM, you can stop the tedious “stare and compare” and immediately see the exact changes between versions in a single view. SCM also hides unchanged lines to make it easy to find and focus on what’s important.

Access Rights Manager
