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.

Use the Add Node wizard to assign SAM application monitors to a node

In addition to using the Application Discovery wizard to add nodes, you can use the Add Node wizard to assign application monitor templates to a node. After SAM discovers available resources on the new node and you select what to monitor, you'll be prompted to add application monitors for application(s) on the new node. Later, you can customize application monitors for the nodes, as necessary.
