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.

Navigate through your SAM environment

As with all SolarWinds Platform products, you can access SAM in a web browser by navigating to http://hostnameOrIPAddress:port where:

  • hostnameOrIPAddress is the hostname or IP address of the SolarWinds Platform server.
  • port is the port defined for the SolarWinds Platform Web Console website during initial deployment. The default port is 8787.

On the Login page, provide a User name and Password, and then click Login to access the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, where you'll view, configure, and manage monitored objects.

The SolarWinds Platform Web Console includes several pages known as views, of which there are two main types: high-level Summary views and in-depth Detail views. Views contain informational blocks called widgets that display data for different aspects of monitoring, usually in a chart or table. Some widgets are intended for use on Summary views, some are suitable for Detail views, and some can be useful on both view types.

This figure shows three widgets in the Application Summary view. To open this page, click My Dashboards > Applications > SAM Summary.

Some views and widgets are not visible by default, but can be added by editing settings. See Customize the SolarWinds Platform Web Console.
