Cloud Volume Details

This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:

Hybrid Cloud Observability EssentialsHybrid Cloud Observability Advanced


This widget appears on the Cloud Instance/VM Details page and provides details such as Volume ID, type, size, alarm status, and region for volumes attached to monitored cloud instances/VMs.

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?

Select a volume on one of the following pages to open the Cloud Volume Details page:

  • Cloud Summary page
  • AWS Cloud Instance Details page
  • Azure Cloud VM Details page

If your organization uses both AWS instances and Azure VMs, you may notice that more information appears in the Cloud Volume Details resource for AWS instances. This is due to the fact that Azure does not provide individual metrics for Azure VM volumes. For example, Azure volumes always display the Up state because Azure does not yet provide volume status via API.
