The Network Sonar Results Wizard opens to guide you through selecting the devices from discovery results that you want to monitor. These results are available whenever a requested or scheduled SolarWinds Network Sonar Discovery operation completes, or whenever you choose to either Import All Results or Import New Results for a selected discovery profile.

The Results Wizard automatically adds non-server nodes as SolarWinds NCM nodes if there is at least one connection profile set up with Use for Auto Detect enabled.

Select the results of a network discovery

  1. Click Settings > Network Discovery.
  2. Select an existing discovery profile, and click Import New Results.
  3. Select the device types you want to monitor, and click Next.
  4. Select the interface types you want to monitor, and click Next.
  5. Select the volume types you want to monitor, and click Next.
  6. Select the AppInsight applications to use with your environment, and click Next.
  7. If there are any devices on the Import Preview that you do not want to import, select the device, and click Ignore.
    Selected nodes are added to the Discovery Ignore List.
  8. Confirm that the network objects you want to monitor are selected on the Import Preview tab, and click Import.
  9. After the import completes, click Finish.
  10. Click My Dashboards > Home > Summary to see imported devices in the All Nodes resource.
