For DPA servers that use individual licenses, SolarWinds DPA has a 14-day evaluation license. During the evaluation period, you can monitor and view data for an unrestricted number of database instances. After the evaluation period, to continue monitoring you must purchase the correct quantity and type of licenses for your database instances.

  • DPA has its own licensing and does not work with SolarWinds License Manager.
  • If your DPA server is deployed in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, DPA uses subscription licensing. You do not need to purchase, activate, or allocate individual licenses.

Purchase licenses

Contact our sales team to purchase licenses directly from SolarWinds.

Only buy licenses for active database instances. Standby database instances used for disaster recovery or high availability do not need licenses.

View purchased licenses

After you purchase individual licenses, you can view your SolarWinds DPA licenses in the SolarWinds Customer Portal.

  1. Access the Customer Portal.
  2. Click Licenses > Manage Licenses.

    The licenses for your SolarWinds DPA product are listed by license type.

Next steps

After you have purchased licenses, you must activate them on a DPA server, register database instances for monitoring, and then allocate licenses to the registered instances.
