Observe entities

When you monitor a single entity, such as a website, your insight into the health and performance of your entity is limited to that one item. However, when you monitor multiple entities that relate to each other, you can unlock the power of SolarWinds Observability and gain insight into the health of your whole environment.

After detecting a problem from a single monitored entity, you can observe the entire system the entity is a part of and gather actionable data. For example, if your digital experience monitoring identified a performance issue with a monitored website, you can follow the problem through the associated host, service, database, and network device entities and review the logs for all entities associated with the affected website.
