Orion Platform products monitor the health and performance of your network through ICMP, SNMP, WMI, API, and Syslog communication and data collection.

A simple centralized Orion Platform deployment includes at least two servers:

  • Primary server where you install your Orion Platform products. The primary server includes the Main Polling Engine and the Orion Web Console.
  • A separate server to install the SolarWinds Orion database.

The polling engine requests real-time statistics (through the selected polling method, such as SNMP or WMI) from monitored devices in your environment.

Polled data is further processed and stored in the SolarWinds Orion database.

Data is requested from the database and displayed in Orion Web Console. File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/Test_2/0060-How_Orion_Platform_products_work/howorionworks.png
