These release notes provide guidance for SolarWinds Orion Web Performance Monitor (WPM) v2.2.1.

Note: WPM v2.2.1 requires SolarWinds NPM 11.5 or newer. Make sure you upgrade NPM before you start upgrading to WPM v2.2.1.

New Features and Improvements

Orion WPM version 2.2.1 is a service release containing three hotfixes, which are described in the Fixed Issues section.

Orion WPM version 2.2 included the following new features and improvements:

WPM 2.2 comes with the Application Stack, also known as the  AppStack Environment. This provides an interactive visual mapping within Orion, giving an in-depth perspective through the entire environment to help identify the root cause of performance and availability issues. See the relationships of your WPM Transactions and Steps across a myriad of Solarwinds products and quickly identify the app servers, web servers, and databases that are impacting performance. 

Note: AppStack is provided with the following software releases. If you own two or more of the listed products, AppStack will not function properly unless each version of the software is upgraded to the versions listed:

Even if you are running an older version of any of the above mentioned products, objects monitored in it are displayed in AppStack.

  • Integration with Orion Alerting

    Create, view, and manage WPM-related alerts in Orion's new Alerting interface. Set warnings and custom timing thresholds for individual steps and entire transactions. Get notified automatically via SMS or email when a transaction fails.

  • Dependencies for Transaction Steps

    Create dependencies between Transaction Steps and Nodes and Applications for fine-grained insight into your transactions.

  • The AppStack Environment Resource
    • Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) 6.0
    • Integrated Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (IVM) 2.0
    • Server & Application Monitor (SAM) 6.2
