By default, the following AppStack Environment categories are available within Server & Application Monitor.

  • Groups
  • Applications
  • Servers
  • Virtual Hosts
  • Virtual Clusters
  • Virtual DataCenters
  • Virtual Centers
  • Volumes

Other SolarWinds Platform products offer additional categories. Empty categories can be hidden via the Change Layout Settings option in the drop down menu.

Understand the Category Status Summary

The Category Status Summary (located to the right of each category) parses, enumerates, and displays the number of objects in a given category, emphasizing the status as indicated by the colors. The Category Status Summary can be toggled to either be displayed at all times, or only when categories are collapsed. This option exists under the Change Layout Settings settings drop down option.

If no objects in a category exist with a particular status, that status is not shown in the summary.
