The bandwidth you need depends on the total data you are collecting from your SolarWinds servers each polling cycle and the duration of your polling cycles.


  • EOC, all versions


WAN traffic

For WAN to EOC, see Estimating inbound traffic.
For EOC to WAN, you need approximately 2/3rds of inbound WAN.

Traffic between SQL Server and EOC

EOC to SQL is the same as inbound WAN.

SQL to EOC is 1/20th of inbound WAN.

Estimating inbound traffic

To estimate the total data, pick the model that most closely matches your environment:

  Number of
Nodes Interfaces Alerts Traps Syslog IPSLA
Small 5 5,000 20,000 15,000 15,000 15,000 20,000
Medium 10 10,000 40,000 50,000 50,000 50,000 40,000
Large 30 100,000 115,000 200,000 200,000 200,000 100,000

The inbound data received per polling cycle for your model is listed in the chart below.

  KB received per
polling cycle
