  • VMware vSAN monitoring

    Troubleshooting for vSAN SDS.

    Quickly monitor and report on vSAN capacity and performance. View dedup and compression, before and after statistics, free space, overallocated ratios, and more to help ensure you have the necessary capacity. Gain visibility into clusters performance with failed health check monitoring and VM latency breakdown.

  • Manage across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud

    Monitor your cloud infrastructure, as well as your hybrid and on-premises virtualization.

  • Visibility across the application stack

    Show complete visibility of the virtualization stack.

    Quickly assess the health of your entire environment—whether it’s server, virtual, or storage infrastructure—and troubleshoot specific, interrelated problems from one view.

  • VMware events monitoring

    Near real-time VMware event monitoring.

    SolarWinds VMAN virtual machine monitoring tool is built to provide near real-time event correlation, alerting, reporting, and performance monitoring for VMware environments. Using VMAN’s PerfStack feature, you can speed root cause analysis by correlating performance spikes to events such as VM migrations, creation, and configuration changes.

  • Virtualization alerts and dashboards

    VM monitoring for vSphere, Hyper-V, Azure, and AWS.

    Uncover and resolve issues unique to vSphere, Hyper-V, Azure, and AWS using intuitive dashboards and alerts with clickthrough to greater detail. Active virtualization alerts are categorized as critical, serious, warning, and informational. Performance, storage, and capacity planning dashboards allow you to quickly focus on the task at hand.

  • IT data correlation and analysis

    Predict, prioritize, and resolve issues before they affect end-users.

    The PerfStack dashboard within VMAN’s virtual machine monitor software allows you to drag, drop, and overlay VM management tool performance metrics from your systems data and multiple sources (network, virtualization, storage, or database), and view data types on a single chart.

Next Feature
  • Log and event collection and analysis

    Gain insight into the performance of your environment.

    Your infrastructure is constantly generating log data to provide performance insight. Collect, consolidate, and analyze thousands of syslog, traps, Windows, and VMware events to perform root-cause analysis with log monitoring tools from Log Analyzer.

  • Powerful search and filter

    Rapid identification of performance and availability issues.

    Perform searches using basic matching. Execute searches using multiple search criteria and apply filters to narrow results. Save, schedule, and export search results within the log monitoring software.

  • Real-time log stream

    See log data in real-time with an interactive chart and graph.

    Traditional log collection and log management tools generate reports in plain text or HTML. SolarWinds® Log Analyzer displays logs in an interactive, real-time log stream.

  • Event log tagging

    Simplified log search

    Easily apply (color-coded) tags to your log data to aid with filtering, searching, and identifying performance issues.

  • Flat log file ingestion

    Collect, analyze, and alert on data in Windows flat log files

    Log Analyzer can collect Windows flat log files and provide insight to help admins troubleshoot and resolve application issues faster.

  • Orion Platform integration

    Unified infrastructure monitoring and centralized event log management.

    SolarWinds Log Analyzer directly integrates your log and event data into the Orion Platform console so you can easily view log data alongside network and systems performance.

    Be the first to know when issues arise. Log Analyzer integrates with the intelligent alert engine of Orion to provide customizable alerts along with delivery options including email notification, ServiceNow integration, and the triggering of an external script.

  • Log forwarding and exporting

    Keep your log aggregator from being a dead end

    Having your log data in a central location is great for troubleshooting and correlation, but what if you need that useful data in other locations or tools? Log Analyzer allows you to forward logs to other applications, such as ticketing systems or SIEMs, and export log data to CSV files for even more flexibility.

Next Feature
  • Track server and application changes

    Get alerted when configurations change.

    System and application configurations are changing constantly. Some changes are necessary and authorized, while others may be malicious or done outside normal processes. One thing they all have in common is they’re often the cause of outages, performance issues, or vulnerabilities. However, knowing when these changes took place and who made the change without a configuration change monitoring tool is nearly impossible.

    SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) is designed to track and alert you when system and application configs change from a user-defined baseline or their last configuration. With agent-based monitoring on Windows and Linux devices and applications, you’ll see changes in near real time and who made changes to files and the registry.

  • Monitor databases for unauthorized changes

    Know quickly when your database configuration changes

    Your databases are mostly behind the scenes, but they’re critical to keeping your business running. SCM monitors for configuration changes to this infrastructure, and changes to user permissions and schemas.

  • Correlate configuration changes to performance

    Know if config changes are helping or hurting performance.

    When a server is down or performing poorly, the change data collected by Server Configuration Monitor can be combined with the performance, health, and availability metrics collected by other Orion® Platform-based modules in a single visual timeline via PerfStack. The combination of these two sets of data allows you to easily see if an application or server configuration change was the source of a performance issue or outage.

  • Manage scripts and monitor output changes

    Enhance change auditing capabilities by monitoring script outputs.

    Homegrown scripts provide valuable insight into your organizations systems and applications. With SCM, you can centrally manage scripts, distribute those scripts to servers in your environment, and then track and alert on changes to the entire output of those scripts. Essentially expanding your change monitoring capacity to the level of your scripting prowess.

  • Hardware and software inventory tracking

    View and report on hardware and software inventories.

    Gain better control of your hardware and software inventory with Server Configuration Monitor’s asset inventory tool. It’s designed to provide you with an up-to-date list of your hardware and software assets.

  • Orion Platform Integration

    Unified infrastructure and change auditing.

    Built on the Orion Platform, Server Configuration Monitor has direct access and integration with other enterprise level features and datasets.

  • Server Compliance Monitoring

    Automation of compliance policy monitoring for device, server, and application configuration against a benchmark

    Each rule reads a configuration from a file, device, command, registry setting, etc.; pulls the needed information; evaluates it against the benchmark; and returns pass, fail, or unknown.
