SolarWinds Agents with Unknown Status

This application template runs a PowerShell script that calls into the SolarWinds API. It finds all SolarWinds Agents in an unknown state and starts monitoring that metric. The metric is cumulative across all polling engines. The message output of the script does break out each polling engine and the percentage of agents assigned to that engine with agents that have an unknown status.

Setup Requirements:

  • Assign this to your Main SolarWinds Server
  • Install the Orion SDK, found here.

Additional caveats: Since all of the APEs are listed in the message output of the text there is not a way to track per APE counts of unknown agents as the script stands today. It can be modified to do so. You can create a report to show previous SAM Script Message outputs but this is returned in text/string format only.
