This widget appears on the Cloud Summary page and provides health stats, latency, IOPS, size, and type metrics for volumes attached to monitored cloud instances/VMs. Click the name of an instance or VM to open its Cloud Instance/VM Details page.

Typically, AWS provides more metric data about volume for instances than Azure provides for VM volumes. The SolarWinds Platform gathers data provided by cloud service APIs so expect to see more AWS volume metrics, as compared to Azure volume metrics.

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?
