Locate application dependency log files for SAM

The Application Dependency polling job searches for application and application process connections from nodes monitored by agents to which application monitors were assigned. The job also tracks the creation of application dependencies, as indicated by agent plug-ins that SAM deploys during polling.

SAM stores application dependency polling logs in the following default locations:

  • Orion server:
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\ADM\
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\SAM.ADM\
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Collector\Logs\Plugins\ADM.Plugin.ApplicationTcpConnection.Creator.log
  • Target machines:
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\Agent\

Connection Quality polling logs are stored in the following locations on the Orion server:

  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\ADM
  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds)\Logs\Agent\

To free up disk space, move logs to the C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Logs\SAM.ADM\ folder where files are automatically deleted after five days by default.

Application dependency database tables

The following tables are stored on the Orion database server. You can use the Database Manager to view the SolarWinds database.

  • ADM_NodeInventory: Lists all nodes with application dependency agent plug-ins and last poll data.
  • ADM_NodeSettings: Lists custom Application Dependencies settings for each node.
  • APM_ApplicationTcpConnection: Stores detailed data about connections between nodes and applications, including:
    • Process name that connects to the application
    • Command line details
    • Service name
    • Port and server details
  • APM_ApplicationTcpConnectionView (View): Stores detailed data about connections between nodes and applications, including:
    • Process name that connects to the application
    • Command line details
    • Service name
    • Port and server details
  • APM_DependencyTcpStatistics: Stores discovered connections including DependencyID
  • APM_DependencyTcpStatisticsView (View) – Stores discovered connections including DependencyID
