Help Server

Provide the URL of the server where online help for Orion Platform products is stored. The default location is http://www.solarwinds.com.

If you are in an Internet-restricted network environment but require access to online help, download the online help for your products, including the Orion Platform offline help, copy it to a web server, and change the Help Server URL to that of the web server. You can download the online help from the documentation page for your product at https://support.solarwinds.com/Success_Center.

Status Rollup Mode

Specify how the availability status of nodes in node trees or on maps is displayed in the Orion Web Console.

  • Mixed Status shows Warning ensures that the status of a node group displays the worst warning-type state in the group. If none of the group members have a warning-typed state but the group contains both up and down nodes, a Mixed Availability warning state is displayed for the whole group.
    Examples:
    Critical + Down = Critical,
    Critical + Warning = Critical,
    Up + Down = Mixed Availability.
  • Show Worst Status ensures the worst state in a node group is displayed for the whole group.
    Examples:
    Up + Down = Down
    Unreachable + Shutdown = Shutdown.

Child Status Rollup Mode

Specify how the status of any single node on the node tree or on a map is displayed.

  • Select Show Worst Status to ensure that the worst status of the node group is displayed for the whole group (e.g. red if any of the nodes are down).
  • Select Show Worst Status (Interfaces only) to ensure that the worst status of any of the interfaces on a selected node is displayed. Only if you have SolarWinds NPM installed.
  • Select Show Worst Status (Applications only) to ensure that the worst status of any of the applications on a selected node is displayed.
  • Select Show only ICMP Status to only display up/down status for monitored interfaces.

Child Status Display Mode

Select whether you want to use a static or blinking icon to display the status of the children of any single node on the node tree or on a map. By default, a static icon displays the status of child objects.

Integration Tips

Specify whether you want to show or hide the list of products in the How SolarWinds Products Work Together section of the Settings page.

Drag and Drop Views

Turn on or off the ability to drag resources around on views.
