When 2020.2 was released, the SAM team was nice enough to provide us with a set of application templates to monitor core SolarWinds Orion services. I then asked if these templates were "HA-aware" and a few more templates were created for use on the standby node in a pool.
However, what we *really* need is more intelligent monitoring of Orion, dynamic in nature like other AppInsight templates; discover whether a poller is active or standby and monitor the services as "stopped" vs "down" if standby and automatically change this when the pool state of the poller changes.
It would also be great if the logic could discover which modules are installed, and automatically monitor the relevant services and metrics for those as well.
This will provide more accurate, timely, and efficient self-monitoring of Orion in HA deployments.
