A SAM template status shows Initial Poll in Progress


This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the issue when a SAM template has already been assigned but Initial Poll in Progress status still shows after it was successfully added and tested. 


SAM version 6.0 and later


In some cases, the SWIS publish-subscribe notification does not work well between the main and additional poller. In such cases, the AP does not recognize that a new application was created and never schedules a polling job. 


Note: The changes should be done on the additional poller machines.

This is a workaround. Update the SolarWinds.APM.BusinessLayer.dll.config to add  a query change notifier in addition to pub-sub (publish-subscribe). This is not turned on by default since pub-sub works fine in some case. 


1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\APM\SolarWinds.APM.BusinessLayer.dll.config and open the config file using a text editor. 

2. Find the following string:

<apmSettings checkMaintenanceStatusTimer="06:00:00" maintenanceStatusOverdue="2.00:00:00" MaxNumberOfInitialWaitForAppDiscovery="30"></apmSettings>

3. Add the following lines at the end of the string:


The string should now look like this:

  <apmSettings checkMaintenanceStatusTimer="06:00:00" maintenanceStatusOverdue="2.00:00:00" MaxNumberOfInitialWaitForAppDiscovery="30" useApplicationChangeQueryNotifier="true">


4.  Restart the module engine.
