IP address processing

By default for new installations, SolarWinds NTA conserves your processing and database resources by limiting the amount of time spent attempting to process the expired IP addresses of endpoints in monitored flow conversations.

SolarWinds NTA is configured to spend no more than 15 minutes attempting to process any expired IP addresses. To conserve your processing and database resources, SolarWinds recommends that you maintain a reasonable time limit.

  1. Under Maximum Time Spent to Process IP Addresses, select one of the following:
    • Custom Number of Minutes, and then enter a value to edit the processing time period.
    • Never Stop Processing Expired IP Addresses to remove the processing limit and delete flow records corresponding to expired IP addresses as they expire.
  2. Click Save.

SolarWinds recommends against removing the time limit for processing expired IP addresses, as continuously deleting expired IP addresses may negatively affect performance. By default, SolarWinds NTA sets a maximum period of 60 minutes for processing expired IP addresses to ensure that excessive processing resources are not drawn away from monitoring your network.
