This topic applies to all Orion Platform products.

For most network monitoring and management tasks, SolarWinds Orion products use SNMP.

  • To monitor devices on your network, you must enable SNMP on all devices that are capable of SNMP communications. The steps to enable SNMP differ by device, so you may need to consult the documentation provided by your device vendor.
  • If SNMPv2c is enabled on a device you want to monitor, by default, SNMPv2c is used to poll the device for performance information. If you only want to poll using SNMPv1, you must disable SNMPv2c on the device to be polled.

For more information about MIBs, see Management Information Base (MIB).
