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.

Understand the AppStack widget

The full AppStack Environment view is designed to provide you with a powerful layer of troubleshooting visibility by exposing all participating objects in your environment, as well as their relationships to one another. By comparison, the AppStack widget only displays objects related to the target of the current Details page.

The AppStack environment supports only server and virtual server node types.

  • If no relations are shown in the AppStack widget on the Group Details view, then it is likely that this group contains no objects represented within the AppStack.
  • If you created a group that contains only objects without representation within the AppStack environment (such as switches, routers, wireless access points, and interfaces), the group will be the only item displayed within the AppStack widget.

This widget displays the related objects you would see in the full AppStack Environment view after selecting an object then clicking Spotlight.
