Documentation forSolarWinds Observability

Hosts widgets

Widgets contain information or status related to a specific monitored capability. Each widget shows a specific type of information collected from one or more observed entities. In the Entity Explorer, these widgets show data for the current entity shown in the entity details view. When the widget is included as part of a dashboard or area view, it could summarize the related data from multiple entities. If filters are applied or a time period is selected in the entity details view, the data in the widgets are filtered accordingly. See Entity Explorer and Entity details view.

For Amazon AWS EC2, Azure, and Kubernetes hosts, the widgets available are dependent on the type of Host and may differ between AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, and self-managed hosts. For self-managed hosts, the SolarWinds Observability Agent gathers data and sends it to SolarWinds Observability.

The following widgets report host status based on metrics ingested from your AWS, Azure, or Kubernetes account or the SolarWinds Observability Agent:
