Removing a sensor from a node is a two step process. First delete the sensor using the Orion Web Console, and then remove the communication agent directly from the node.

  1. Delete the sensor using the Orion Web Console:
    1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.

    2. Click QoE Settings > Manage QoE Packet Analysis Sensors.
    3. Select the node.
    4. Click Delete Sensor.
    5. Click Delete when prompted.
  2. Remove the agent directly from the node:
    1. Logon to the computer with administrative credentials.
    2. Navigate to Control Panel > Programs and Features.
    3. Select SolarWinds Agent.
    4. Click Uninstall.
    5. Follow the onscreen prompts to completely uninstall the agent.

The sensor is removed from the list and the communication agent is uninstalled and cannot gather traffic data or send data.
