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.


This widget contains controls that are actionable for both the application and the node. The controls in the following illustration are SAM-specific.


  • Edit Application Monitor: This allows you to edit the current application by changing the settings specifically related to this application. This includes, but is not limited to: changing the polling frequency, changing the Windows and PowerShell URLs, changing the Exchange Server credentials, and adjusting threshold settings for component monitors that have thresholds. Changing some settings may require you to override the template that this application is based upon. To do this, simply click Override Template.

  • Unmanage: Allows you to stop the polling and collecting of statistics of the current application for a user-defined period of time.

  • Poll Now: Allows the application to retrieve the most current statistics when clicked.
    Note: By default, mailbox statistics are not polled when Poll Now is clicked.
