#FeatureFriday: All About Diagnostics, Baselines, and Dependencies in SolarWinds Orion

Welcome to “Feature Friday”, a series of (typically short) videos which explain a feature, function, or technique.

After a quick reminder that running diagnostics is NOT just for when you are in trouble, my discussion with fellow SolarWinds Head Geeks Kong Yang and Patrick Hubbard turns to when and how to enable baseline calculations – which allow the system to use collected metrics to build a model of what is “normal” – and automatic dependencies – which suppress alerts on devices downstream of the root cause.

For more insights into monitoring, as well as random silliness, you can follow me on Twitter (@LeonAdato) or find me on the SolarWinds THWACK.com forums (@adatole)
