NPM licensing

Updated August 15, 2016

Overview

This article provides brief information on the NPM License tiers and how they are applied. 

Environment

All NPM versions

Detail

Licensing Scheme

NPM is licensed by the largest number of the following element types:

  • Nodes: include entire devices (routers, switches, servers, APs)
  • Interfaces: include switch ports, physical/virtual interfaces, VLANs, port channel interfaces. Interface count is usually the largest.

    Unmanaged interfaces also use up a license. To prevent interfaces from consuming a license, remove them from the Orion Web Console.

  • Volumes: are equal to the logical disks you monitor

 

Example:

An Orion NPM SL2000 can monitor up to:

  • 2000 interfaces + up to 2000 nodes + up to 2000 volumes.

    NPM Upgrades must ensure matching NTA upgrade licenses are included as well.
