Orion service groups (groups)

SolarWinds has introduced service groups to address the need to associate managed objects. Group objects can be physical items such interfaces and nodes as well as logical objects such as application performance metrics or IPSLA test results. Two types of service groups can be created: static groups and dynamic groups. In static groups, all group members are manually added and the group members are only edited by manual means. In dynamic groups, the members are specified by indicating a requirement, so that any managed object that meets the requirement is added to the group. Qualifying new objects added after the group has been established will also be automatically added to the group. Likewise, objects which no longer meet the group membership are automatically removed from the group. This may occur if you edit the group requirements, or edit the properties of a group member.
