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.

Multi Chart

This chart provides the ability to graphically visualize multiple statistics simultaneously at the application level without the need to drill down into each component monitor.

The advantage of this view is that you can easily determine how certain processes are performing in relation to others. For example, you may notice that a spike in RAM usage results in higher CPU usage. This charted information allows you to get a quick overview of what is being monitored and may answer why certain unexpected events are occurring.


You can have the chart show a predetermined time period of data by clicking on any one of the three Zoom buttons at the top of the chart. Alternatively, you can have the chart show a specific time range by dragging the mouse over a small area of the chart, or by adjusting the sliders in the smaller chart below the main chart.

The Multi Chart can be added from the Application Details view.
