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.

Calculate node availability and a baseline in SAM

The Availability Calculation setting on the SolarWinds Platform Polling Settings view provides a choice between the following two methods for determining device availability.

To learn more, see Calculate node availability in the SolarWinds Platform.

Calculate a baseline

Much of the raw data that SAM polls from nodes is provided initially as counter values. If you do not need statistics immediately, or if you do not want SAM to calculate a baseline at startup, disable baseline calculation at startup by setting the Baseline Calculation option on the SolarWinds Platform Polling Settings view to False.

Baseline calculation requires significant data gathering and processing. Until baseline calculation is completed, both SolarWinds Platform server performance and the CPU performance of some of network routers may be adversely affected.
