The following sections provide procedures for moving Windows and SQL Server temporary directories to optimize SolarWinds server performance and resources.
The SQL Server temporary directory,
tempdb, where temporary database objects generated during table creation and sorting are stored, is typically created in the same location on your Orion database server as the
msdb databases. Moving the
tempdb database to a physical drive separate from your Orion database can significantly improve overall system performance.
For more information about moving the SQL Server 2008 temporary directory,
tempdb, see Moving System Databases - Example A: Moving the tempdb Database.
Following established Windows standards, the SolarWinds installer may use Windows User and System TEMP and TMP variable directories as temporary scratch spaces for file expansion and execution. If you do not have the required scratch storage space available in the default User or System TEMP and TMP directories, use the following procedure to redefine your default locations.
Regardless of the directory you installed SolarWinds product, some common files may be installed where the operating system of your SolarWinds server are located.
