The error message "Cannot load nodes from [filename].csv" appears while trying to import a .csv file to Network Performance Monitor.


This issue occurs if the .csv file is not formatted according to the file formatting limitations.


The first line of the file, which is not a comment, must be the header, and it must contain either of the following:

"IP Address",Community
"IP Address"



  • The information in the header is case-sensitive, and the quotation marks must be used as well.
  • Comments must be started with the pound sign (#).

No headers
