SolarWinds NTA uses a new database for storing your flows, the NTA Flow Storage Database which allows for a significant improvement in performance.

SolarWinds recommends using a dedicated server, or at least a dedicated disk or partition for the NTA Flow Storage Database.

Installing NTA Flow Storage Database on a polling engine (main or additional) server is not recommended. If the server resources are shared by the database and SolarWinds NTA or SolarWinds NPM, the potential performance improvement is not so significant as it could be if the database were on a separate server.

  1. Install SolarWinds NTA and NTA Flow Storage Database.
  2. Select a licensing options.
  3. Configure your SolarWinds NTA and local NTA Flow Storage Database.
  4. Define the location for NTA Flow Storage Database by filling in an absolute path to the appropriate folder.
  5. Proceed to add your NetFlow devices and interfaces to SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor.
