SolarWinds requires an account and some level of training for a user to consume and observe the node's status, especially as the dashboard experience in SolarWinds is overwhelming. In addition, the NOC team needs unified SolarWinds dashboards with the same experience to observe the status of various monitoring systems all-in-one place.
Using the powerful Web API tile in SquaredUp, the SolarWinds dashboard connects to the SolarWinds Information Services REST API endpoint, using SQL queries in the request data, in real-time.
The dashboard also leverages mustache syntax to transform the SolarWinds' own status into a human-readable status and corresponding health icons. Using Open Access, we can share this dashboard to anyone in our organisation in a matter of seconds.
Down the left side of the dashboard are these tiles:
- Nodes by Status – health state of your nodes
- Nodes by Type
- Nodes by Location
On the right side of the dashboard:
- Unhealthy Nodes - a list of nodes where the state is not healthy
- All Notes – a list of nodes with their health state and their properties
