We've gone a little crazy this month but who can blame us?! SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor 6.0 is on it's way and unless you've been hiding under a rock, you're probably aware it's coming packed with several exciting new features. Some have affectionately referred to this release as SAM 6.OMG and others may have shed a tear or two, but it's all in the name of taking SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) to the next level and well beyond just application and server monitoring (well, maybe we skipped a few levels).
Ready to check out the new features and Navigate the Depth's with SAM 6.0? This month we will feature 4, five-question quizzes, each highlighting one of the major new features coming in SAM 6.0. Normally, there would only be a grand prize at the end of the mission but we've tossed that out that the door this month. Not only do we have a grand prize, but we'll be giving away a prize each week until the end of September. Take a look at the mission rules below to see how to play.
- There will be 1 quiz featured each week. Follow the schedule below to see opening and closing times, prizes, and drawing dates.
- There are 5 questions on each quiz. Each question is worth 150 points, making the entire quiz worth a possible 750 points. Over the course of the month, you'll have a chance to earn up to 3,000 points. And don't shy away from those points even if you're not entered into a drawing. Points are like gold right now! New items will be coming to the thwack store sooner than you think.
- Score 100% on a weekly quiz and be entered into the drawing for that week's prize.
- Attempt all 4 quizzes throughout the month and be entered to the grand prize drawing, regardless of your score on the quizzes.
- As always, only your first submission to each quiz counts for credit/entries.
- Weekly drawings will be held on Friday afternoons.
- The grand prize drawing will be held on Monday, September 30th.

Best of luck!
