Orion Documentation


The Orion Platform is at the core of the SolarWinds IT Management Portfolio. It provides a stable and scalable architecture that includes data collection, processing, storage, and presentation.

The Orion Platform provides common features like network node discovery, dashboards, reporting, alerting, SNMP traps, Syslog, groups, and more that can be leveraged across all products. So for example, if you installed NPM, UDT and SAM on the same server, they all use the same database. You can create groups using monitored objects across these three products and the alert definition process is the same for all three products.

Use the links below to explore all of the SolarWinds products that use the common Orion Platform architecture.
