SolarWinds Universal Device Poller (UnDP) is a customization feature of SolarWinds NPM. With UnDP, you can create custom monitors for almost any statistic provided by SNMP based on its Management Information Base (MIB) and object identifier (OID).

With Universal Device Poller, you can monitor:

  • Interface traffic
  • CPU temperature
  • Addressing errors
  • UPS battery status
  • Current connections to a website

Before you start configuring UnDPs

  • Consult your vendor documentation, and find out which OID you want to monitor.
  • Create a list of nodes that you want to poll the custom statistic on.
  • Check out our THWACK community to see if someone has already created a UnDP for what you need.
     

UnDPs do not collect data from Orion Failover Engine or Hot Standby Engines. If a SolarWinds NPM server fails, data collection for any Universal Device Pollers stops on the server.

UnDPs are tied to the polling engine on which they are hosted. If you move a monitored node from one polling engine to another, you must also move the UnDP poller.
