WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Orion alerting software can alert on polled, syslog, and trap data. Alerts are defined in terms of thresholds related to data in the Orion database. Scans in the form of SQL queries at set intervals detect recorded values that exceed thresholds, triggering an alert if relevant conditions pertain.

When an Orion alert is triggered, the software evaluates suppression criteria. If an alert is not qualified to be suppressed, the software executes a defined action. If no action is defined, the software merely displays the alert on the web console.

Throughout this workflow, timers are used to allow the software to do its work at each step and to ensure that the alerting workflow had appropriate redundancy for timely reporting of alerts.
