All Orion network monitoring and management products use a Microsoft SQL Server database to store web console settings and collected network performance and configuration data. The following database utilities are packaged with Orion IPAM products to help you manage your Orion database.

Database Manager

Allows you to perform queries, edit database values, export data, and perform database repair and compaction on your Orion database. For more information, see Using Database Manager.

Database Maintenance

Allows you to summarize, clean, and compact your Orion database. For more information, see Database Maintenance.

The database Orion uses is hosted on a Microsoft SQL Server. When installing SQL Server, you have the option of installing the SQL Server Management Studio. If you are the database administrator for the SQL Server hosting your Orion database, SolarWinds generally recommends that you install this utility as it provides a number of features that are not currently available in the Orion Database Manager. For more information, see Using SQL Server Management Studio.

Note: Orion Network Configuration Manager maintains its own additional database for device configurations and user activity logging.
