SolarWinds NPM provides both a selection of predefined pollers and the Universal Device Poller utility for defining your own pollers to monitor specific aspects of your network devices.

If you do not see a poller that meets your monitoring needs, use the Universal Device Poller to create your own poller. See Monitor custom statistics based on OIDs with Universal Device Pollers.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Select the node, interface or volume you want to assign Universal Device Pollers to.

    The list only includes nodes polled through SNMP. If you cannot see a node, check the polling method, and change it to SNMP.
    See Add a single node for information about adding nodes, interfaces or volumes for monitoring.

  4. Click Assign Pollers in the Node Management toolbar.
  5. Expand the poller group, and select pollers to be assigned.
  6. Click Submit, and click OK to confirm the assignment.

    The selected pollers will now be polled on the node, interface or volume.
