Database settings

Table of contents

Due to the great volume of data that is produced by devices on your network, SolarWinds NTA databases may quickly become unmanageable unless you schedule regular maintenance.

The Database Settings grouping allows you to configure maintenance for both databases used by SolarWinds NTA.

Orion Database

This database stores CBQoS data and node data relevant for SolarWinds NPM. SolarWinds NTA uses data stored in this database to display appropriate node details and data concerning CBQoS policies defined on your devices.

NTA Flow Storage Database

This is a NoSQL database that stores flow data using bitmap indexes. It brings high performance and customizable retention of raw data without aggregation. It stores data with one-minute granularity for the whole retention period (30 days by default) and enables you to see your flow data in more detail.

Access database settings

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NTA Settings.
  3. Scroll down to the Database Settings section.
