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.

Create a NetPath alert on all redundant servers for latency and packet loss threhold

Table of contents

Updated June 1, 2017


This article describes how to create a NetPath alert if you need to monitor a URL. The alert will trigger when the latency or packet loss threshold has exceeded on all redundant servers in the URL.


  • The thresholds in NetPath is the same for a single service.
  • It is not possible to customize the path threshold that deviates from the threshold set to the service.


  • NPM 12.1
  • NetPath 1.1.0


  1. Go to the Orion Web Console> Dashboard > NetPath Services > Create New Service. Do this step for each redundant server.
  2. Modify the alerts.
    1. Go to Alerts & Activity > Alerts > Manage Alerts.
    2. Go to Advanced Options > Trigger Conditions, and then select Enable complex conditions. For example, Alert me when [application A on server X is down] AND [application B on server Y is down].
    3. Create separate trigger conditions that will alert at the same time when all redundant servers have packet loss or when the latency exceeds the set thresholds.
