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.

Use alerts to monitor your SAM environment

An alert is an automated notification that a network event occurred; for example, when a server doesn't respond. The network event that triggers an alert is determined by conditions you set up when you configure your alert. You can schedule alerts to monitor your network during a specific time period, and create alerts that notify different people based on when the alert is triggered.

The types of events you can create alerts for vary, depending on the SolarWinds Platform products installed. For example, in NPM you can create an alert to notify you if a node in a specific location goes down or if the network response time is too slow. With SAM, you can receive alerts when application response times lag, or your Exchange mailbox database is almost full.

You can create alerts for any monitored object, and alert against volumes and nodes with most SolarWinds Platform products. To get started, click Alerts & Activity > Alerts, and then click Manage Alerts. For details, see Use alerts to monitor your environment with the SolarWinds Platform.
