Change the polling engine configuration to ignore traps from an un-monitored device

Table of contents
No headers

A new feature in NPM 10.7 and latter allows users to ignore traps from a device, that is not monitored by current polling engine. When the device is assigned to a polling engine, this polling engine accepts traps from that device. If you re-assign the device to a different poller, that poller will start receiving the traps from the device and the old poller will no longer receive the traps from this device.

 

Please follow these steps to ignore duplicate traps from different polling engines:

  1. Stop the Orion Services - How to Start/Stop Orion Services.
  2. Go to the installation folder C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion.
  3. Edit SWTrapService.exe.config and set the following settings:
  4. Click Save, and then click Close.
  5. Start the Orion Services - How to Start/Stop Orion Services.

 

Applies to: NPM v10.7 and later.
