Solarwinds & Cisco Live! Barcelona
Join us from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February at Cisco Live 2018 in Barcelona, where we will continue to show how monitoring the network with SolarWinds will keep you ahead of the game. At our booth (WEP 1A), we will demonstrate how SolarWinds network solutions can help. As a bonus, we are also hosting a pre-event webinar - Blame the Network, Hybrid IT Edition with our SolarWinds Head Geek™, Patrick Hubbard on January 24th - GMT (UTC+0): 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. There's still time to RSVP.

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.
