APM 1.0 release notes

 

Updated November 2, 2018

 

SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor (APM) is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-delivered product that extends the application monitoring capabilities of SolarWinds SAM. It delivers advanced performance metrics for IIS-based, .NET applications that are integrated into the SAM experience.

You can use SolarWinds APM to cross-reference application, server, and infrastructure metrics side-by-side in the same dashboard, and trace requests through your entire application and infrastructure. APM also includes heat maps to isolate outliers and trends, which you can use to drill down to traces for root cause.

Adding this extra layer of information to the Orion Platform enables you to:

  • Gain a code-level look into your AppInsight for IIS applications.
  • Monitor the performance of custom IIS-based, .NET applications.
  • Check the status of application stacks and see how tiers of applications communicate with each other.
  • Determine the databases and users that applications send information to.
  • Identify if issues are network-, server-, or application-related so you can route details to the right team.

APM integration can be added to any IIS node being monitored by AppInsight for IIS in SAM 6.7 or later. To begin using APM, see the APM Getting Started Guide and How to Activate APM within SAM (video).

APM licensing 

APM is licensed per node (that is, each Microsoft IIS server) and the license fee includes a one-year subscription. Host counts for licenses range from 10 to 100, in increments of 10. Larger host counts are available on request.

An APM license entitles you to Application Performance Monitoring functionality within SolarWinds AppOptics. To learn about AppOptics licensing for infrastructure monitoring, click here.
