Using PerfStack with SRM

With complex networks consisting of cloud, hybrid IT, virtualization, storage area networks, and so on, multi-faceted IT issues can be difficult to pinpoint and diagnose. When an issue surfaces, for example a badly performing application or server, the investigation can take significant time to locate the core issue. The problem could be in storage, network connectivity, user access, or a mix of resources and configurations.

To investigate the issue, create troubleshooting projects with the Performance Analysis (PerfStack™) dashboard that visually correlate historical data from multiple SolarWinds products and entity types in a single view.

With Performance Analysis dashboards, you can do the following:

  • Compare and analyze multiple metric types in a single view, including status, events, and statistics.
  • Compare and analyze metrics for multiple entities in a single view, including, nodes, interfaces, volumes, applications, and more.
  • Correlate data from across the Orion Platform on a single shared time line.
  • Visualize hybrid data for on-premises, cloud, and everything in between.
  • Share a troubleshooting project with your teams and experts to review historical data for an issue.
