SolarWinds Lab Episode #91 – Customizing the Orion Platform With the SolarWinds API and SWQL

September 16, 2020

In this follow up to "Orion SDK 101: Intro to PowerShell and Orion API," Kevin M. Sparenberg, technical content manager for Community, will continue with his deep dive into the SolarWinds Query Language (SWQL). Kevin will show you how to represent existing data from within your monitoring ecosystem using traditional elements (e.g., reports, widgets, etc.) and in the new, modern dashboards, as well. A working knowledge of basic T-SQL queries is highly recommended.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to get started with dashboards
  • What makes a good or bad dashboard
  • How to build your own widgets
  • How to execute proper dashboard research, design, and implementation
  • Where to find more help

  • Just re-watched... good to do and catch things you missed before!

    Excellent, about the modern dashboards. I had to pause and rewind a few times, but great stuff there.

    Is there a way to return days, rather than seconds in the Uptime? I see you calculate SystemUpTime/60/60/24 and then compare to 90 days, but can the result be what is returned. Maybe something like DaysUpTime=SystemUpTime/60/60/24?
