Server & Application Monitor - What We're Working on Post 5.0

Product Manager

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor 5.0 is just a few weeks old but we're already busily working on some great new features and enhancements to the product, such as...

  • Native support for Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Improvements to Application Template Editing, Including Multi-Edit Functionality
  • Hardware Health Summary Resource
  • Charting Improvements as Demonstrated Here
  • Windows Event Log Monitor Enhancements to Display Event Message Details
  • Additional Hardware Monitoring Support, including IBM MegaRAID Controllers and other Miscellaneous items.
  • Enhancements to the Real-Time Process Explorer, Including Ability to End Task on a Process

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!

Windows Event Log Monitor Enhancements to Display Event Message Details


Spent several hours the other day writing a PS script to do just that (several hours because I'm not very good at it).  Seems to be working well though I'll make a note to share it with the community here soon.

Level 9

Did just that a couple of days ago:

I may have to blend my script with yours.....I did mine a little different I'm only looking at the last X minutes (couldn't figure out how to get it to look only where I left off) but I return all events since the last poll that match.  The date on your script shows you posted this the day before I wrote mine.  I had looked like two days prior and found nothing so I wrote my own...should have checked again

Level 10

Regarding Windows Eventlog Monitor Enhancements to Display Event Message Details:  This is defintiely a MUCH NEEDED feature!   We will wait for it to be released as a feature in APM, and hope the wait is not too long.  Perhaps if enough of us send comments, they might move it up in the priority list?

  • Improvements to Application Template Editing, Including Multi-Edit Functionality

This will be a welcome sight. Templating has been a real pain with things like JMX where JNDI addressing is never the same from one server to the next.

Level 16

I TOTALLY agree...  I have a HUGE need for this now....  but I am terrible at scripting....  so I'm forced to wait

Level 14

Same.  Just having an event up / down is kinda useless to us.  We need the details and we need an alert that contains the details.

Level 7

UNIX: ability to watch a log file for new entries of pattern 'xyz'

soon but later?

Have you used the Log Parser included in SAM 5.0?

Level 7

Number of Newly Found Strings is in line with some of what we’d be looking for.

In that case, this Application Template may better suite your needs

@sdolan feel free to message me if that doesn't work for you.  I have that template I created working on all of our UNIX boxes.
