Orion database maintenance

Table of contents
No headers

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

Because of the growing volume of data produced by your devices, the database may quickly become unmanageable unless you schedule regular maintenance. The SolarWinds Orion database maintenance includes compressing the database and log files.

For more information about the database maintenance application packaged withSolarWinds NPM, see Running database maintenance in the SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor Administrator Guide.
