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.

Create an AppStack layout in SAM

A Layout is a user-defined filter with configured settings you can save and use when viewing the AppStack. You can tailor layouts with filters to view specific objects of interest. A default layout is provided that contains all currently monitored objects visible in the AppStack Environment. You cannot modify the default layout. As you create and save layouts, load them via the Layout menu.

To create a layout:

  1. Create a filter by selecting filter options in the sidebar or selecting filter properties.
  2. Apply the filter to update the AppStack.
  3. Under the Layout menu, click Save As New Layout. Enter a name and save.

You can modify the layout by making changes to the filter and clicking Save. If you want to save as a new layout, click Save as New Layout. To remove a layout, select the layout as currently used and select Delete this Layout.

For example, to create a Layout where only IIS objects in the AppStack Environment view are shown, add the IIS filter property. Apply the filter and save it as a new layout.

The layout is added to the Layout menu, where you can easily navigate to it. The dot next to a layout in the menu indicates the layout currently used.
