  • Network Sonar Discovery has been improved to better handle the full discovery of nodes with large numbers of interfaces.
  • The Orion Web Console user interface has been improved with the inclusion of module-specific tabs and breadcrumbs for more intuitive navigation.
  • The Database Maintenance utility has been improved to run maintenance tasks more efficiently.
  • The ability to post a URL using HTTP GET or HTTP POST methods as an alert action has been added.

Version 9.5.1 (Full Release Notes)

  • Network Objects on Events, Syslog, and Traps views now load more quickly and are sorted more intuitively.
  • The stability and performance of Orion NPM polling engines have been improved.
  • Memory leaks related to Orion modules and Orion Web Console reports have been fixed.

Version 9.5 (Full Release Notes)

  • You can designate any node as External if you want to use Orion Application Performance Monitor (Orion APM) to monitor applications hosted on the selected node without using Orion NPM to monitor the performance of the node itself.
  • Orion NPM enables you to designate selected ports as unpluggable, so you no longer receive unnecessary alerts when users undock or shutdown connected devices. This feature is particularly useful for differentiating lower priority ports connected to laptops and PCs from more critically important infrastructure ports.
  • It is now possible to unmanage individual interfaces.
Cisco EnergyWise Support
Cisco EnergyWise technology allows you to responsibly manage energy usage across the enterprise. With Orion NPM, you can view EnergyWise device management data to measure, report, and reduce the energy consumption of any devices connected to EnergyWise-enabled switches.
Network Atlas
Network Atlas, the Orion network mapping application, gives you the ability to create multi-layered, fully customizable, web-based maps of your network to visually track the performance of any device in any location across your network in real time.
Integrated Wireless Network Monitoring
An integrated wireless device poller enables you to leverage proven Orion NPM alerts, reports, and web console resources as you monitor and manage wireless thin and autonomous access points in the same views in which you are already monitoring your wired network devices.
Expanded Node Management Options
Orion NPM now provides the following node management options:
Network Sonar
Network Sonar, the improved wizard-driven device discovery utility, further simplifies the addition of devices and interfaces to Orion NPM. Answer a few general questions about your devices, and the discovery application takes over, populating the Orion database and immediately beginning network analysis.

Version 9.1 (Full Release Notes)

VMware ESX Server Monitoring
Orion NPM now provides views and resources that are tailored for virtual machines, specifically VMware ESX Servers. These new views and resources give you immediate insight into the performance of VMware ESX Servers and the virtual machines they host on your network. This version of Orion NPM also allows you to create VM-specific alerts and track the performance of your virtualization solution with custom reports generated by Orion NPM.
Custom Views of External Websites
Orion NPM now gives you the ability to include views of external websites within your Orion Web Console. With an external website view, you can designate any website as an additional tab on the Views menu bar in the web console, giving you the ability to bring web content directly into the Orion Web Console.
Additional Universal Device Poller Transform Functions
The proven power and flexibility of Universal Device Pollers have been extended with additional poller transform functions. Now you can create your own poller transforms using the sum, minimum, maximum, and average of the values in any column of any polled table.
Performance and User Interface Upgrades
In keeping with SolarWinds' commitment to give you the tools you need to manage your network, the following performance enhancements have been included in this release:
  • The Web Node Management utility has both a new search capability and new interface-only views.
  • Orion Web Console views for Syslog messages, Traps, and Alerts all feature new, more informative Quick Start screens to introduce you to the many related features of Orion NPM.
  • A new Thwack integration resource highlights the latest Universal Device Pollers, submitted by both users and SolarWinds developers, that are available for inclusion in web console views.
  • The default Start menu listing of SolarWinds tools and applications is now more intuitively organized.
