Status Rollup Mode
Specify how the availability status of nodes in node trees or on maps is displayed in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console.
- Mixed Status shows Warning ensures that the status of a node group displays the worst warning-type state in the group. If none of the group members have a warning-typed state but the group contains both up and down nodes, a Mixed Availability warning state is displayed for the whole group.
- Show Worst Status ensures the worst state in a node group is displayed for the whole group.
Child Status Rollup Mode
Relevant only for Classic Node Status Calculation: Specify how the status of any single node on the node tree or on a map is displayed.
- Select Show Worst Status to ensure that the worst status of the node group is displayed for the whole group (e.g. red if any of the nodes are down).
- Select Show Worst Status (Interfaces only) to ensure that the worst status of any of the interfaces on a selected node is displayed. Only if you have SolarWinds NPM installed.
- Select Show Worst Status (Applications only) to ensure that the worst status of any of the applications on a selected node is displayed.
- Select Show only ICMP Status to only display up/down status for monitored interfaces.
Child Status Display Mode
