    Creating SAM n-tier application monitors


      New to SolarWinds, but excited to learn how I can make it work to make my life easier. I have created several custom application (monitors) for several of my systems. Typically, this has involved monitoring several Windows services or processes on the same system. I am trying to set up an application monitor that is a bit more complex than that. It will need to monitor several services/processes on one server, database availability on another server, and the directory size of a folder on another system. I've tried to search through the documentation for an example, but have been unsuccessful. I'm sure that this has been done many times over, but I don't know what to search for. Any resources or examples out there? Help!

          Maybe I'm looking at this wrong. I'm looking into working with dependencies now to see if that's the way to go. I guess that I would build this application monitor by taking this component from this server and another from a different server and "voila" I'm now monitoring the application. After some trial and error, it looks like dependencies are the way to go.
