SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor (APM) is now Server & Application Monitor (SAM)

For more information on SAM, visit: http://www.solarwinds.com/server-application-monitor.aspx

In the world of Systems Administrators and Application Managers, dark forces contrive to make our lives difficult. The large management vendors provide us with solutions that claim to have everything we could ever want but come with huge price tags, bands of consultants, and more promises than results. The small monitoring companies provide us with tools that are super cheap but sadly limited in terms of features and scalability. Finally, a ray of hope has sprung forth from the sun.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor delivers agentless performance and availability monitoring, alerting, and reporting for hundreds of applications and hardware types. Within minutes of download and installation, you can start monitoring virtually any application, including Microsoft® Exchange, Active Directory®, Java® applications, and more. Plus, Server & Application Monitor tracks the health of Dell®, HP®, and IBM® System X servers along with the underlying hardware for your VMware® hosts, providing insight into environmental data, hardware status, and more. We’ve even built expert guidance right into the monitoring environment so that you will know what to monitor, why to monitor it, and optimal thresholds!
