Over the past 18 months we have expanded our product portfolio with products like Virtualization Manager and Storage Manager. As we make these expansions, a logical question our customers have asked us is “how do I place everything into a single console or pane of glass?” Within SolarWinds Orion, this can be accomplished very simply by following the below steps.
Here is another example showing Top N Clusters from Virtualization Manager.
If you want to do the same for SolarWinds Storage Manager or Profiler, Brian did a blog (Adding Profiler Views to Orion) previously on this that walks you through in detail on how to do this for older Profiler customer (pre-5.0). With the release of Storage Manager 5.0, the team created an integration plug-in for the Orion web console. This works similar as to how the NCM integration plug-in does today. If you want to read more on how to enable the plug-in integration, see here, but you can also view a screenshot of how this looks below.
If you own Profiler or if you have Storage Manager and prefer another method, I put together a brief example here on how to wrap a Profiler/Storage Manager view in an iframe. You follow the same steps I walked you through above for SolarWinds Virtualization Manager, except in Step 5 you insert an iframe instead. In Brian’s link, he provides you other URL’s to embed other Storage Manager views.

It’s as simple as that to create a single pane of glass which shows all your Network, Systems/Apps, Virtualization and Storage data all in one place. If you own EOC or the Enterprise Operations Console, you can do the same thing as described above in Orion.
