Overview

This article describes how to check and change your database settings to default.

Environment

All Orion NPM versions

Steps

Notes:

  • It is strongly recommended not to change the default database settings unless you are sure that changes are needed.
  • If changes are necessary to increase the retention, please consult SolarWinds support and consider your SQL deployment environment as it could make drastic changes to the database size.
  • Changing the settings could also create performance issues such as loading graphs/historical graphs, applications, web pages, statistical data.
  • Changes may also cause connection services to the Orion database and high table fragmentation.
  1. Go to Settings > Polling Settings.
  2. Refer to the below screenshot for the default settings.
