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.

Locate SAM application dependencies log files

When polling on behalf of the Application Dependencies feature, SAM creates logs in the following default locations:

  • SolarWinds Platform server:
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\ADM\
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\SAM.ADM\
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Collector\Logs\Plugins\ADM.Plugin.ApplicationTcpConnection.Creator.log
  • Target machines:
    • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\Agent\

Connection Quality polling logs are stored in these locations on the SolarWinds Platform server:

  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\ADM\
  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds)\Logs\Agent\

To free up disk space, move logs to the C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Logs\SAM.ADM\ folder where files are automatically deleted after five days by default.

Application dependency database tables

The following SolarWinds Platform database tables store data related to the Application Dependencies feature:

  • ADM_NodeInventory: Lists all nodes with application dependency agent plugins, along with the latest metrics.
  • ADM_NodeSettings: Lists custom Application Dependencies settings for each node.
  • APM_ApplicationTcpConnection: Stores data about connections between nodes and applications, including:
    • Process name that connects to the application
    • Command line details
    • Service name
    • Port and server details
  • APM_ApplicationTcpConnectionView (View): Stores data about connections between nodes and applications, including:
    • Processes that connect to applications
    • Command line details
    • Service names
    • Port and server details
  • APM_DependencyTcpStatistics: Stores discovered connections including DependencyID.
  • APM_DependencyTcpStatisticsView (View): Stores discovered connections including DependencyID.

You can use the Database Manager utility to view the SolarWinds Platform database.
