    Difference between Component and Application

    venh.123

      What is the difference between Component and Application? Can anyone please explain clearly with examples? How are these different from the corresponding monitors, i.e., Component Monitors and Application Monitors.

          I think of them as files and folders. Application is equivalent to folder, whereas files are equivalents to components. Application must have at least 1 components. Component itself does all the monitoring job. I think in SolarWinds you can have cases when you have component without application, but I would stay away from this. It makes whole structure very messy when you have components laying around without being assigned to application.

           

          Applications1

               - component1

               - component2

               ...

           

          Application2

               - component1

               ...
