This widget displays basic details for a cloud instance/VM and includes expandable sections with configuration, hardware, and security metrics retrieved from the Amazon CloudWatch monitoring service for AWS instances and the Azure Monitor service for Azure VMs.

To access this widget from the Cloud Summary page, click an instance/VM displayed in the Cloud Instance/VM Status Summary widget or the Cloud Server Infrastructure widget. You can also access this widget by clicking a cloud instance/VM on other SolarWinds Platform Web Console pages. For example, click an instance/VM managed as a node in the All Nodes widget on the Orion Summary Home page.

The title and contents of cloud-based widgets depend on whether an AWS instance or Azure VM is selected.

Cloud metrics gathered by cloud service APIs and retrieved by the SolarWinds Platform vary from OS metrics. See What can I monitor on my cloud instance/VM?
