Any objects monitored by SolarWinds NPM or SAM may be added to a Network Atlas map, such as:

  • SolarWinds NPM nodes, interfaces, volumes, and Universal Device Pollers (UnDPs)
  • SAM applications and components
  • VoIP & Network Quality Manager operations
  • Network Atlas maps
  • Network links

To add objects on a map:

  1. If you are creating a new map, click the Network Atlas button (File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/010/02000004_17x17.jpg), and click New Map.
  2. If you are adding objects to an existing map:
    1. Click the Network Atlas button (File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/010/02000004_17x17.jpg).
    2. Click Open Map.
    3. Navigate to your existing map, and click Open.
  3. Expand and navigate the node tree in the left pane to locate the network nodes and monitored objects you want to add to your map.
  4. Drag selected objects onto the drawing area.
    • To add all the objects of a type on a node to your map, click + next to the node name to reveal all its associated monitored network objects, and drag all objects in the object group onto the drawing area.
    • A checkmark (File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/010/03000005_17x17.png) next to a node or network resource indicates you have already added it to your map.
    • To view details about a map object, hover over it with the mouse pointer.
    • To locate a specific map object in your map, click its network resource in the left pane. This selects the map object.
