With the Device Studio, you can create custom pollers in the Orion Web Console.

Custom pollers allow you to monitor specific technologies or unique devices that are not automatically detected for monitoring in your SolarWinds environment.

What is a poller?

Statistics monitored on your devices are specified by pollers. Pollers hold information about a monitored property, how to get the current value for the property, and where and how to display the retrieved data.

What do you need custom pollers for?

  • To monitor a specific metric which is not monitored out-of-the box.
  • To monitor special equipment.
  • To monitor objects although the number of monitored objects exceeds a poller's capacity limitation.
