What is SolarWinds SAM?

Hi y’all! I’m the new product marketing manager for SolarWinds SAM – Server and Application Monitor. For the last few years, the products I’ve worked on have been focused on storage infrastructure and backups. Now that I’m part of the SolarWinds team I’ll be concentrating on monitoring infrastructures; the hardware and maybe even more importantly the applications that run on that hardware.

I’ve been at SolarWinds for three months, and I’m just starting to dig into the actual technology of SAM. I thought I’d work out loud, and blog my way through learning about my new product.

What is SolarWinds SAM?SAM is an application monitoring product. It monitors servers and applications, gathering and pushing info by using native tools (SNMP or Windows® WMI, PowerShell®, etc.) or a lightweight agent to gather important host information. (I’ll cover why you’d want to use an agent vs going agentless in a future blog post). Information can also be gathered using templates –  specialized scripts that go directly to a server to gather specific information. There are out-of-the box templates for over 200 enterprise applications (including Exchange®, SharePoint®, etc.). You can also pull in scripts you have written, or design your own templates to gather information on applications that have been developed in-house.
