SAM - propagate application status across parent group(s)

SAM - propagate application status across parent group(s)

0 Kudos

Issue: The "All Group Sumary" widget is great for getting a high level status for a group when one or more nodes are down. The group status icon changes to an icon based on the group setting (show worst status, best status, or mixed). However, I noticed that the status only changes based on the node status, and application's running on the node do not affect the status icon. 

Solution: Change the node's parent group (s) to display with the warning/critical status icon anytime there is an application on any of the nodes in the group with a status of warning/critical. 

This solution would allow an admin or a department manager to get a high level status of all the servers/applications in his/her own department/group. See screenshots attached.

Actually, are you using the 2019.2 platform's enhanced node status capabilities? https://thwack.solarwinds.com/t5/Product-Blog/Orion-Platform-2019-2-Enhanced-Node-Status/ba-p/433041 As of that release, SAM application templates and later API pollers all contribute directly to the node status and will thus be included in your group calculation.
