Availability test results
The Test Results widget displays the details of each website or URI availability test performed by SolarWinds Observability during the specified time period.
The following table describes the items in the Test Results widget.
|Time||Local time when the test was executed by SolarWinds Observability|
Test result (Success or Fail)
|Response Time||Time in milliseconds that the test probe received a response from the website|
|Protocol||Protocol used to connect to the website|
|Location||Location of the probe testing the website|
Click an individual test to open the Test Details panel. The test result, related traces, and a root cause analysis of any errors encountered during the test are displayed alongside standard test details such as the probe location, duration of the test, and the time the test ran.
Look under the Test Result section of the panel to see the local time when the test was executed, the test result, the location of the probe testing the website, and the time in milliseconds that the test probe received a response from the website.
Root cause analysis
For tests that result in a failure, a detailed analysis of the test is available under Root Cause Analysis. This analysis includes a confirmation of the failed test, the completion time of the analysis, and the location of the probe used to analyze the test. After the failed test confirmation is the Root Cause Analysis Steps, with each step of the attempted test listed. Each step of the attempted test includes a duration of the step and the technical details related to that step, such as a traceroute or the requests sent and response received.
Review the information in the analysis carefully and, if necessary, expand or collapse steps by clicking > or < next to the step.
If a trace is detected during a test, a summary of the trace is listed under Related Traces with a span chart. Click Trace Details to view the full trace in the Traces Explorer.
