How to do various customizations with your Solarwinds

I have compiled this page of folks that I have recently discussed customizations with and have led me to others.  wluther started a list on a couple of his posts and I thought I would expand upon it just a bit.  Then I asked rschroeder‌ about a few things and he lead me to more.  Again a list was developing.  I have not had time to ask cnorborg‌ about more regex stuff but I am sure he has some excellent ideas and some teaching points to share.  As I find more helpful posts for my use, I will reference them here.  Please follow&bookmark this page, if this would be a helpful resource for you.

I would like to thank all of you here for your contributions.

Thanks,

Eric

Re: How to do various customizations with your Solarwinds

CourtesyIT‌ Outstanding!! This is exactly what I had in mind. I used to do a bunch of reading on the XDA forums, and like how they did TOC stickies. It made it so much easier to find the starting places I was looking for. I saw a page from alexslv‌ where he started with a single post, and then used it to branch out to all of this other posts. Very helpful stuff.

Thanks for the time and effort researching and making this list.

Bookmarked and Liked...

Thanks,

Re: How to do various customizations with your Solarwinds

DanielleH‌ I agree, Thwack Nation has definitely helped me enhance the SolarWinds environment I am responsible for. Without Thwack Nation, and all of the content they provide, I would probably have the most boring and inefficient monitoring system. Yet, because of this community, I am able to make my environment do things that SolarWinds support told me were impossible.

DanielleH‌, maria.bungau‌, mrs.alterego‌, aLTeReGo‌, meech‌, cvachovecj‌‌ (There are tons more, but I cannot list everyone here), should all take a bow too. Y'all do a fantastic job of keeping this place running smoothly, and answering all of our questions.

Thanks to all parties, from all aspects, of this community.

Re: How to do various customizations with your Solarwinds

Thanks, Will.

Working with customers gives me a big portion of professional satisfaction. I'm really not surprised that you guys come up with things we didn't believe were possible. To me this is similar to the situation when kids can do something their parents can't. It's a great feeling. Ideas that we find on thwack inspire many improvements in the products and we really appreciate them.
