Work with SAM application monitor templates

SAM includes over 250 out-of-the-box application monitor templates that cover a wide range of common applications. You can think of a template as a blueprint of what needs to monitored for a particular type of application. It lists all components or building blocks for that application and recommended, default thresholds.

Starting in SAM 2020.2, you can also use API poller templates to capture metrics for PaaS, IaaS, on-premises, and hybrid environments from Microsoft 365, Azure, VMware, Atlassian, and APIs for SolarWinds products such as AppOptics, Pingdom, and Service Desk. See SAM API Poller Template Guide for details.

To display a list of application monitor templates included in SAM:

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings..
  2. Under Application Monitor Templates, click Manage Templates.

A searchable list appears on the Manage Application Monitor Templates page, as shown here:
