Can I migrate my historical data from the SQL Flow Storage?



  • NTA 4.2.3 and lower versions


Yes. During the Configuration Wizard, you can choose to migrate the historical data from SQL. The migration runs in parallel with new NTA Flow Storage Database until the migration has completed.


When upgrading to NTA version 4.4 or later, there are new requirements for the NTA Flow Storage Database. A separate Microsoft SQL database instance is required for flow storage. For production deployment, SolarWinds NTA requires the Standard or Enterprise edition of SQL Server 2016 SP1 or later for the NTA Flow Storage Database. Existing flow data from your current installation will not be migrated, and you will no longer have access to your flow data once you complete your upgrade.
