Add SolarWinds Site maps to EOC

Updated: August 30, 2018

Enterprise Operations Console provides two customizable ways to visually represent your network deployment: the Network Atlas Map and the Worldwide Map.

Network Atlas map

Network Atlas is an application for creating custom maps and network diagrams. It is pre-installed with your Enterprise Operations Console product and provides a graphical depiction of your entire network, specifically the utilization percentage of a connection between site locations, as well as provides you with the ability to create graphical representations of your network environment.

You can export or print Network Atlas maps and use them to document your network. You can also import Network Atlas maps from each of your remote sites for use in EOC.

Worldwide map

Worldwide map is a representation of your connected devices (nodes) with information about the devices at a particular location.

In comparison to the Network Atlas, the Worldwide map does not display the status and utilization of connections between locations in your physical network. Instead, it provides details of the nodes in a location, such as the average response time, a device's network location and physical location, and the number of devices at that location.

You can configure the Worldwide map to place devices on the map automatically, or drop offline devices, or devices not connected to your monitored network, can be manually dropped to the map. Objects with the same position on the map appear as one location.

Import and display a Network Atlas map

Import a Network Atlas map to monitor nodes, interfaces, applications, and network links. You can also view the coverage provided by wireless access points and wireless clients connected to those access points.

  1. In your operating system, go to Start > All Programs > SolarWinds > Run Network Atlas.
  2. Enter your Orion Web Console credentials.
  3. If you are running Network Atlas on a local computer, provide the localhost address, or if running remotely, the IP address of the main polling engine.
  4. Click Connect.
  5. Log in to your Enterprise Operations Console.
  6. Navigate to My Dashboard > Enterprise Maps.
  7. Click the Customize Page icon editPage.png.
  8. In the upper-right corner, click Add Widgets.
  9. Under Group By, select Network Maps, and then click and drag the Map widget to Enterprise Maps area.
    Valid areas to drop the tile are highlighted in green.
  10. After you have placed your tile, click Done Adding Widgets.

  11. Click Done Editing.

Add a Worldwide map to EOC Maps

You can import maps from any SolarWinds Site and add them to the Enterprise Maps view. Although there is only one Worldwide map, you can add the widget to multiple views, and display different objects and information on each of those views.

Manually add a device node to the Worldwide map

The Worldwide Map can be configured to automatically add device locations. You can also manually add a location into the map and define a device positioned at that location.

  1. Go to My Dashboards > Enterprise Maps.
  2. On the Worldwide map widget, click Manage Map.
  3. In the upper-left corner, click Place Objects on the Map Manually.
  4. Click the area of the map to place your object node.
  5. In the window that opens, filter the object by the SolarWinds Site location, object type, or grouping, such as the device vendor. You can also search for devices by keyword.
  6. In the left column, select the object to place. The selection is displayed in the right column.
