SolarWinds NPM thresholds are relevant for nodes and interfaces. They include Cisco Buffer Misses, Interface Errors and Discards, Interface Percent Utilization, and Flapping Routes.

  • When a metric reaches the specified Critical Level threshold on a node or interface, the node or interface will be displayed as bold red in resources and reports.
  • When a metric reaches the specified Warning Level thresholds on a node, the node or interface will be highlighted in red in appropriate resources and reports.
  • Flapping Routes use different colors when the thresholds are exceeded: red for the error threshold and yellow for the warning threshold.
  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console using an account with Administrator Rights.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  3. In the Thresholds & Polling grouping, click NPM Thresholds.
  4. Provide the values for Critical Level and Warning Level for the selected metrics.
  5. For the Interface Percent Utilization metric, specify if you want to use average or peak daily values in calculations for capacity forecasting.
  6. Click Submit.

Monitored thresholds are changed on a global level for NPM.
