NPM 11.5.3


Apply the SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor 11.5.3 Hotfix 1 on your Main Polling engine server as this hotfix addresses the following issues:
* High CPU utilization when processing multicast data.
* UnDP utility fails because of an unspecified exception. Install the hotfix on all polling engines which are affected by the issues.


Installing the hotfix:
1. Log in as an administrator to the server hosting your SolarWinds NPM installation.
2. Extract the hotfix archive, run SolarWinds-NPM-v11.5.3-HF1.exe, and follow instructions in the installation wizard.
3. Complete the Configuration Wizard. If the wizard does not launch automatically, start it in the SolarWinds Orion program folder (SolarWinds Orion > Configuration and Auto-Discovery > Configuration Wizard). Multicast data processing will be faster and the UnDP utility will be more stable.
