  • Daily Platform Maintenance

    I don't remember where I got this, but this is a custom query widget reporting the start time, end time, and duration of the daily maintenance on your SolarWinds Platform. As configured it pulls events for the last 7 days, but can be configured for longer times by adjusting the - 7 in line 44 to whatever duration you'd like. Be sure to change the Number of Rows per page setting in the Custom Query widget if you don't want pagination.

  • Group Membership (Node)

    This is something I threw together to enumerate the groups (both traditional and maps) where a Node is used. It's designed to be placed on a Node Details page and will not function correctly on other pages (like summary pages, interface details pages, volume details pages, application detail pages etc.). Recommended query title and subtitle are also listed in the SWQL. It is search capable, and instructions are outlined in the query itself.

  • Unmanaged Nodes with custom names

    This displays the name of the node, when the unmanage action begins, when it ends, the time the unmanage action was completed, and the name of the person in human readable form. You will need to acquire a list of Solarwinds users first. The code for that is at the bottom of the query Solarwinds doesn't have extra tables in the database to allow human readable names to accounts so unmanage actions are shown as Active Directory accounts. In our organization these read like this DomainName\user2868732...

  • Widget: Node Status Root Cause

    I built a query to better show by a particular node is in warning/critical status. I know you can hover over areas to get that detail but I wanted to have it all in one place. Not all entries have a URI but the ones that do are hyperlinked in the query. Navigate to the Node Details page where you want to add this widget Click on the pencil icon on the top-left Click on 'Add Widget' button on the top-right Search for 'query' Drag the 'Custom Query' resource onto the page Click on the...

  • Widget: Node Status vs. Node Polling Method Widget (Node Details)

    I had a need to know how the node status was being calculated vs how the node was being polled. I added a 'Custom Query' widget to my 'Node Details' page and used the following attached query. I also created this as a report to list all nodes with the status vs polling method. You can see those details here .

  • Map Membership (Nodes)

    Follow-up on a report for Nodes Map Membership. This is a query that can be put on any summary page with (optional) filter. (Described in the SWQL) As Built Search Results (for 'switch') Original Request: Report or Widget to Identify any nodes not included in any map - Orion SDK - The Orion Platform - THWACK ( Related Report: Map Summary Report (Nodes) - Reports - The Orion Platform - THWACK (

  • Classic Dashboard Widget List (and Search)

    Someone recently asked if there was a way to determine the widget type behind a resource. There it, and it's accessible via the API. This is a searchable listing of all widgets on your system. It searches the Dashboard Name, the Parent Name (if a NOC-style dashboard), the position on the page (column, and position), the Widget Type, the Widget Name (as displayed on the dashboard) and the Widget Subtitle (as displayed on the dashboard). In the event that it returns either a NOC or a Summary...

  • Maps containing Node (Node Details)

    In helping out another THWACK user on this thread , I decided that this might be useful for others, so here it is... This is meant to be placed on a Node Details Page and configured like this: The query is very simple and I decided to just have it sort by name. Nothing more onerous. Note: This is meant to be on a Node Details page and won't work properly elsewhere.

  • NCM Backup Job Config Status

    This query is an attempt to pull together as much information within NCM as far as its backup jobs go, NCM login status and the age of the last backup. It's not perfect and relies on a few not so ideal ways to join various bits of data but it's sufficient. Long story short, SolarWinds NCM could do a better job at auditing its own happenings. Regardless, here's what the query shows and also a mockup of what it looks like if you use within a modern dashboard. Last Login status, "Login OK" =...

  • Access Layer VLANs (with good/bad VLAN defined)

    This provides a list of all interfaces with an assigned Access-level VLAN (trunks ignored). Includes icons for vendor, interface type, and a faux-status on a matching VLAN ID (as defined in the query). Mostly this was created so that I could validate that you can stitch together VLAN --> Interface --> Node correctly, but I figured I would share it. Summary Page (query as is) Node Details Page (requires minor edits, see below ) Possible Use Cases Could be used to identify ports on specific...

  • Volume Utilization with Forecast Capacity

    So I developed this a while ago, and recently have been asked for something similar again. Prompted me to refine it a little bit more and provide it to the larger community. Can be displayed as a custom query, and will display Volume information along with its capacity forecast. Decided to make this because its hard to get those metrics in one consolidated widget. The code to make it searchable by Volume/Node caption is already present, just uncomment where appropriate.

  • Query nodes failing to poll via their configured polling technology

    This query is more meant to be an alert, however could also be thrown into a custom widget within a view and is very useful to have in and of itself also. SELECT Nodes.Uri, Nodes.DisplayName FROM Orion.Nodes AS Nodes WHERE ( MINUTEDIFF(Nodes.LastSystemUptimePollUtc, GETUTCDATE()) >= 480 AND ( Nodes.PolledStatus = 1 AND Nodes.ObjectSubType IN ('Wmi', 'Agent', 'SNMP') ) )
