Get immediate insight into hardware issues on your network. Monitoring hardware health on SAM supported devices informs you which of these devices are in Up, Warning, Critical, or Unknown states.

  1. When adding a device into the SolarWinds Orion database for monitoring, enable polling hardware health statistics.
  2. Hardware health statistics are polled through SNMP, from a MIB tree on your devices. For Cisco devices, make sure that the correct MIB is selected.
  3. Make sure the correct sensors are enabled for the nodes.
