Cloud Instances/VMs Status Summary

This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:

Hybrid Cloud Observability EssentialsHybrid Cloud Observability Advanced


This widget displays on the Cloud Summary page and lists cloud instances/VMs being monitored. Use the Status field to filter instances/VM by All, Down, Critical, Warning, Unknown, Up, and Other, or search by instance/VM name.

Metrics for CPU load, memory, and receive and transmit rates reflect values retrieved by the last successful polling request. Memory data only populates for cloud instances/VMs being managed as nodes.

All metric data polls from cloud service APIs. This data differs from OS metrics.

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

Hover an N/A value in the Memory column to launch the Add Node Wizard and manage an instance/VM as a node in the SolarWinds Platform, as shown in the following example for an AWS instance.
