Documentation forServer & Application Monitor
Monitoring your applications and environment is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability and is also available in a standalone module, Server & Application Monitor (SAM). Hybrid Cloud Observability and SAM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Log in to the SolarWinds Platform to use SAM

As with all SolarWinds Platform products, you can access SAMby logging in to the SolarWinds Platform Web Console to do everything from adding nodes to discovering applications for monitoring, and setting up alerts.

In a web browser, navigate to http://hostnameOrIPAddress:port where:

  • hostnameOrIPAddress is the hostname or IP address of the main SolarWinds Platform server.
  • port is the SolarWinds Platform Web Console port defined during installation. The default port is 8787.

On the SolarWinds Platform Web Console login page, provide a User name and Password, and then click Login.

If you're an administrator logging in to a new installation of SAMfor the first time, you'll be prompted to add a password to the main Admin account. Afterward, SolarWinds highly recommends setting up users to ensure your data and network remain in your control.
