SolarWinds Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM) is the feature that enables virtual monitoring directly from the Orion Web Console.

It is available as a feature of SolarWinds NPM or SolarWinds SAM, in integration with SolarWinds VMAN, or as a standalone solution.

VIM monitors the following:

  • ESXi and ESX Server version 4.1 or later
  • VMware vSphere version 4.1 or later
  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server versions 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2

Prerequisites to monitoring virtual infrastructure

  • SolarWinds NPM or SolarWinds VIM is installed.
  • SNMP on your virtual servers is enabled.
  • VMware Tools are installed on all virtual machines you want to monitor.

    If your virtual machines are on monitored ESXi and ESX servers, VMware Tools are not a requirement but provide access to additional information, such as IP addresses.

  • ESX credentials on ESX servers are created.
  • You virtual infrastructure is discovered.
