Orion/NPM has separate diagnostics for the server and the agent.  This article outlines how to collect diagnostics for the agent.


NPM and SAM agent issues

See this article to create server diagnostics: NPM - How to gather diagnostics



  1. Please follow this path:  Settings > Agent Management > Check the box for the agent in question > Edit > Expand Troubleshooting > Collect new diagnostics 
  2. Wait a couple of minutes for it to complete
  3. Click Download when prompted
  4. This will prompt you for a download in your browser
  5.  Reply to the Support case and attach the file to the case response


Note: This process will gather agent diagnostics at the default log level of "WARN" - Changing the logging level does not retroactively update the logs. If you change this level, you will need to click submit, then reproduce the issue and/or wait at least 15 minutes before gathering the Agent Diagnostics to allow for sufficient logging to be captured.


In NPM 12 Or SAM 6.3


1. Settings > All Settings > Manage Agents

2. Select the node in question and click "Edit Settings"

3. Click "Troubleshooting" drop down

4. Set the "Log Level" to Debug

5. Click Collect New Diagnostic.
