Manage database instance relationships

After setting up the SolarWinds DPA integration, Orion automatically creates relationships between nodes and applications in the SolarWinds Orion server and the database instances monitored by the SolarWinds DPA server.

The Orion platform can integrate with multiple instance of SolarWinds DPA. After relationships are created between SolarWinds Orion objects and SolarWinds DPA database instances, the Orion Web Console displays information from both systems in the same resources and views.

If you integrate with a DPA server that has Central Server mode enabled, you must integrate with its remote DPA servers manually to see their data in the Orion Web Console.

Orion retrieves database instance information from SolarWinds DPA and attempts to build relationships between the SolarWinds DPA database instances and SolarWinds Orion nodes and applications based on the following criteria:

  • IP addresses
  • Host names
  • SolarWinds SAM application templates
  • Settings specific to database instances, such as instance name, SID, or port number

You can modify relationships after integrating a DPA server. All relationships are deleted if you remove the integration.

For more information about how the wizard relates objects and database instances, see Relationship detection.

Database instances must exist in SolarWinds DPA before relationships can be created. Database refers to the database server, and all applications that ask the database server for information are clients.
