Presented: December 12, 2011

 Hands down one of the most valuable features of SolarWinds Products is the Advanced Alert Manager. All of the SolarWinds Orion products ship with built-in alerts, ready to use as soon an you install. From there the Advanced Alert Manager offers a broad range of options to configure alerts for your environment. Join Andy McBride and Jason Ferree for this level 2 training where we will focus on:

• Alert trigger logic and condition nesting
• Alert trigger types
• Custom Properties and alerts
• Explicit and embedded suppression
• Alert actions and variables
• Using service groups and dependencies 
• Testing and troubleshooting

This level 2 session will explore the best practice for configuring alerts and will also explain the interworking of the Advanced Alerts Feature. To properly prepare attendees should review the Using Orion Advanced Alerts technical reference.

We are currently working on STM version 5.2 and beyond (in parallel).  Some of the items we hope to deliver:

  • Support for Dell Compellent
  • Adding more metrics to the rules engine
  • Improved Integration with other SolarWinds Products
  • Support for NetApp's ONTAP 8
  • Additional features for EMC VNX arrays
  • Support for HP MSA
  • Improvements to the GUI, Reporter and Charting.
  • End-to-End Visualization - show a visualization of each data path, with drill downs to associated paths. 

PLEASE NOTE:  We are working on these items based on this priority order, but this is NOT a commitment that all of these enhancements will make the next release.  We are working on a number of other smaller features in parallel.   If you have comments or questions on any of these items (e.g. how would it work?) or would like to be included in a preview demo, please let us know!

Using Virtualization Manager to Manage and Optimize your environment

Presented: November 3, 2011


Virtual environments are complex, dynamic and built upon shared pools of resources, creating new challenges that leave traditional management methods and tools in the dust.  Virtualization Manager addresses these challenges with complete insight into your physical resources, the configuration of your virtual environment, and the performance of both.

In this webcast, we discuss:

  • Performance Management - Get recommendations on performance contention and hot spots across you shared memory, CPU and storage resources.
  • Capacity Planning - Take your planning to the next level by factoring storage and network IO into your capacity plans
  • Sprawl - Identify resources you can reclaim or reconfigure to improve performance.
  • Overview of the new version of Virtualization Manager and Storage Manager

Watch this educational webcast and see what's next for SolarWinds Virtualization Manager!
