NTA Getting Started Home

Updated: March 14, 2017

For SolarWinds NTA to analyze bandwidth usage on your devices, you need to discover those network devices and add them to SolarWinds NPM and NTA for monitoring.

SolarWinds recommends that you begin by discovering a limited number of core routers and switches so that you can learn how to manage them with NTA. Then you can add more devices to scale your deployment.

If you are unsure if you discovered any network devices, log in to NPM and click My Dashboards > Network > Network Summary. The All Nodes managed by NPM resource lists all network devices discovered and added to Orion for monitoring.
