This topic describes how to enable monitoring for instances/VMs related to a cloud account from the Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Settings page. You can also manage instances/VMs displayed on the Cloud Summary page; see Manage Cloud Instances/VMs.
Monitored instances/VMs do not count against SAM and integrated VMAN licenses unless they are managed as Orion nodes. See Manage a cloud instance or VM as an SolarWinds Platform node.
- Access the Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Settings page.

- On the Manage Cloud Accounts page, select the check box next to the account for which you are choosing instances/VMs to monitor.

Select the check box next to an instance/VM to toggle Auto Monitoring on or off.
If an instance/VM is not available, an icon displays next to it. This may occur if an instance/VM is stopped or a connection issue occurred.
