Monitor device fault, availability, and performance

SolarWinds® Network Performance Monitor (NPM) uses SNMP monitoring to poll the management information bases (MIBs) on your devices to obtain critical performance metrics. With the SNMP monitoring tools in NPM, you can monitor network fault, availability, and performance of all compatible devices with the ability to create a customer monitor to poll an object identifier (OID) for devices not supported out-of-the-box.

NPM is designed to simplify the detection, diagnosis, and resolution of network issues before outages occur by using an enhanced display of all network device information in fully customizable dashboards and charts. With network management software, you can help ensure the availability of your network and analyze its performance to deliver business-critical applications and services to your end users.

Automatically discover network devices

The SNMP polling features in SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) can also be used as an SNMP scanner on your network. This is beneficial in large and dynamic networks where device hardware may come from multiple vendors and otherwise have unique proprietary protocols. With the insights gained from these SNMP performance statistics, admins can better optimize and troubleshoot network device performance.

Simple SNMP monitoring deployment

SNMP monitoring is designed to be easy to install and roll out on your network with NPM. For devices compatible with SNMP V1 or SNMP V2C, deployment only requires a plain-text community string to authenticate packets. NPM is even built to make it easy to set up SNMP-V3 compatible devices, which is traditionally more complex to set up and requires authentication and encryption credentials.

Once the SNMP device discovery is complete, users can get right to monitoring SNMP trap receivers, network devices, and overall network performance from a unified, intuitive web console. SolarWinds NPM also provides out-of-the-box network alerts, reports, and interactive charts so users can easily understand their network health and isolate performance bottlenecks.

Monitor SNMP and other protocols

With NPM’s robust toolkit, admins on the Orion® Platform can obtain a more in-depth look into network devices. NPM is built to monitor any device that sends syslog messages or responds to SNMP, Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), API, and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). For Windows-based servers, NPM can work via the WMI protocol when used alongside SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor.

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor is also built to help you make the performance metrics you monitor into easily understandable and shareable views. Create dynamic and custom maps to visualize network performance in real time. Dynamic maps can also be generated using custom HTML, so you can drill through network layers to identify network performance insights with ease.
