Features:

Comprehensive Application Monitoring
SolarWinds application and server monitoring software provides out-of-the-box application monitors for more than 200 applications, custom application and script monitoring, user experience monitoring, and more, so you can closely watch all elements of your critical business applications.

Application Stack Management Dashboard
SolarWinds provides full visibility into the application stack and delivers contextual awareness of performance issues across application, server hardware, virtual, and storage infrastructure. The various products within the server & application monitoring portfolio provides IT pros the ability to quickly identify and troubleshoot application issues that can occur from any of the layers through a single pane of glass.

Server Management & Monitoring for Multiple Hardware Vendors
Monitor hardware health for multiple vendors in addition to application and virtual infrastructure health and performance. SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor monitors key health indicators of HP, Dell, IBM System x, blade chassis, and VMware ESX/ESXi host servers with SNMP, WMI, CIM and VMware API protocols.

AppInsight Applications
Get extensive visibility into critical applications like SQL Server, Exchange, and most recently IIS Web servers with Server & Application Monitor’s AppInsight range of applications. AppInsight provides you with various components that ensure you monitor every aspect of these critical applications.

Real-Time Performance Troubleshooting
Server & Application Monitor comes with built-in features like the Real-Time Process Explorer, Service Control Manager, Real-Time Event Log Viewer, and Windows Scheduled Tasks which lets you identify the root cause of performance issues in minutes. Monitor rogue processes and unused services, and troubleshoot performance issues for any server remotely without being physically present.

Agentless or Agent-Based Monitoring
Server & Application Monitor provides comprehensive server monitoring capabilities with an agentless approach. However, an optional agent-based feature is also offered for Windows environments. This feature enables IT pros to monitor server hardware & apps deployed in very remote locations and allows you to troubleshoot performance problems in no time—something that would be otherwise impossible using traditional, agentless protocols, such as WMI and RPC.

Web Services
Server & Application Monitor provides broad coverage for monitoring applications, including composite applications. Monitor SaaS and internal applications built using JSON, and help customers manage their applications.

Quickly configure alerts for correlated events, sustained conditions, and complex combinations of device states. In addition, get access to over 100 Web-based reports that are ready to use, easy to customize, and share immediately.

IT Asset Inventory Dashboard
Administrators can now maintain a view of current hardware and software asset inventory to include server warranty status, driver software, hard drive inventory, and custom properties like PO number and purchase price.

Application dependency mapping with underlying IT infrastructure
With the AppStack dashboard you can quickly pinpoint the root cause of application issues within physical and virtual server environments. Identify where application issues originate in just a few seconds.

Ensure peak server performance with continuous monitoring
Monitor server performance metrics—response time, packet loss, CPU load, memory, disk usage, processes, services, event logs and more. Troubleshoot and resolve server issues using remote management actions.
