Orion Server 2020.2 templates

These three SAM templates were released in SAM 2020.2 and can be used to replace the deprecated Orion Server 2017.3 template.

  • The Orion Server 2020.2 - Additional Websites template assesses the status of Windows services related to SolarWinds Orion servers running Orion Platform 2020.2.
  • The Orion Server 2020.2 - Main Polling Engine template assesses the status of Windows services on the Main Polling Engine (which is usually the Orion server) in Orion Platform 2020.2.

  •  I checked with the person that created these templates and here's the response:

    • Many of those component monitors are performance counters that only some customers need, depending on environment and scale, so they're disabled, by default. 
    • They're included so an escalation engineer can enable them to troubleshoot any issues with polling, the SolarWinds Job Engine, or SolarWinds Collector services.
    • You can enable them but they may cause unnecessary noise until thresholds are set correctly for your particular environment.

    Hope this helps!
