Install SolarWinds NTA and a remote NTA Flow Storage Database

Table of contents
No headers

SolarWinds NTA allows you to install the database for storing your flows on any computer within your network.

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, SolarWinds NTA, and SolarWinds NPM, the potential performance improvement is not as significant as it could be if the database were on a separate server.

  1. Make sure you have SolarWinds NPM installed on the server where you want to install SolarWinds NTA.

    Note the credentials for accessing the SolarWinds Orion database used by SolarWinds NPM. You will need them to configure the NTA Flow Storage Database.

  2. Log in to your NTA Flow Storage Database server, install, and configure the remote NTA Flow Storage Database.
    1. Log in to the SolarWinds NPM server and install SolarWinds NTA only.
    2. Start the Setup Wizard and select the installation option SolarWinds NPM/SolarWinds NTA and NTA Flow Storage Database on Two Separate Servers.
    3. Enter the NTA Flow Storage Database Server hostname or IP address.
  3. Select one of the available licensing options.
  4. Proceed to add your NetFlow devices and interfaces to SolarWinds NPM.
