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

  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:

    • 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.
