How would you do that?
Orion currently cannot detect itself that it is down... :P
I cant even get an alarm if the Orion is down. If a service is down, yes... but as soon as the connection to the database gets lost for more than just a few seconds you cannot do anything. only thing you can do is manually check if everything is up by checking the last database update and the APM-monitors.
If you just want to show the status of the APM-monitor you can create a small map resource on that page that has just one small icon with the status of the orion server...
I know, that is why I put it in a feature request. I am sure that the Solarwinds guru's could gen up something and incorporate it if there is enough interest.
I don't want to create a resource or another map as it takes up too much room on the page. All I need is an icon.
