SolarWinds SAM provides an Application Stack (or AppStack) with an interactive visual map that displays a detailed view of your environment, helping you to identify the root cause of performance and availability issues.

Use AppStack to assess the overall health of your environment and to troubleshoot specific and related problems.

AppStack provides a more thorough analysis of root cause problems in your environment when combined with Storage Resource Manager, Virtualization Manager, and Web Performance Monitor.

The AppStack view is also available at the application layer, and only shows the relationships for that application. This view is called the Mini-Stack.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Environment.

    The AppStack environment generates categories that show the status of objects in your IT environment. Object on the left are the highest priority.
