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.

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.

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.
