Monitor your environment with SAM
SAM offers immediate insight into the performance of your servers and applications. As you view data, you can investigate further to examine alerts, forecast usage, and modify configurations. Summary pages display high-level events and alerts, along with performance data for monitored nodes that represent traditional servers, VMs, applications, Nutanix clusters, and more.
Use links in widgets to drill down further and see details such as server resources, allocated virtual resources, application performance, and OS metrics. To monitor immediate needs in your environment, you can:
- Click the bell icon at the top of the SolarWinds Platform Web Console to view notifications.
- Click Alerts & Activity > Message Center to display events and alerts.
