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.

Enable hardware health monitoring for nodes in SAM

During Discovery, SAM automatically detects nodes that meet hardware health monitoring requirements and deploys agents that act as hardware health sensors to those nodes. Data is collected for nodes when polling begins. You can also enable hardware health monitoring for individual nodes, as described here.

Enable hardware health monitoring from the Add Node Wizard

If adding a single node for monitoring, select the Hardware Health Sensors option in the Add Node Wizard.

Enable hardware health monitoring on the Node Details page

  1. Click My Dashboards > Home to open the SolarWinds Platform Summary Home page.
  2. In the All Nodes widget, click the node you want to monitor.
  3. On the Node Details page, click List Resources in the Management widget.

  4. Select Hardware Health Sensors, and click Submit.

SAM also supports hardware health monitoring for Nutanix clusters and Cisco UCS devices.
