Add flow sources and CBQoS-enabled devices in NTA

 Updated June 1, 2017

You can add flow-enabled devices managed by SolarWinds NPM for monitoring to SolarWinds NTA.

For more information about the automatic addition of flow sources, see Enable the automatic addition of flow sources.

Notes on adding sources and devices

  • Make sure the devices you want to monitor with SolarWinds NTA are already monitored in SolarWinds NPM.
  • If you are using NetFlow version 9, confirm that the template you are using includes all fields included in NetFlow version 5 PDUs.
  • Some devices have a default template timeout rate of 30 minutes. If NetFlow v9 flows arrive without a usable template, SolarWinds NTA raises an event every 15 minutes. Configure your device to export a template every one minute, so that the version 9 flows show up in SolarWinds NTA without delay.
  • See NTA flow requirements for more information.
  • Only an SNMP node can be added as a NetFlow Source.

Add flow sources and CBQoS-enabled devices for monitoring

  1. Click My Dashboards > NetFlow > NTA Summary.
  2. Under NetFlow Sources, click Manage Sources.

    If you enable automatic addition of NetFlow sources, all flow sources currently monitored by NPM display in the NetFlow Sources resource. For more information about the automatic addition of flow sources, see Enable the automatic addition of flow sources.

  3. Select a filter in the Show list to display devices where you want to monitor NetFlow or CBQoS data.
    • Exporters Only (Last 15 Minutes): Displays all devices in your Orion database that have sent flow data within the last 15 minutes.
    • Cisco Devices Only: Displays all Cisco devices monitored by NPM.
    • All: Displays all devices monitored by NPM.
  4. Locate a device or interface, and then select NetFlow, CBQoS, or both to define what is monitored.

    CBQoS monitoring is only available for Cisco devices.

    For more information about setting sampling, see Set the sampling rate manually.
