You can configure SolarWinds UDT and its port information, watch list, and settings through the Orion Web Console by using the UDT Settings page.

DESCRIPTION

Port Management

This gives you access to the commands where you can manage and discover ports.

A port in UDT is a physical connection on your network device.

Manage Ports

This lets you add, configure, and delete ports.

User Device Tracker Discovery

This section lets you discover ports. For more information, see User Device Tracker port discovery.

Track Users and Endpoints

This gives you access to the commands to setup user tracking and manage a device watch list.

Manage the White List

This section lets you add, edit, and delete rules for determining which endpoints on the network should be considered safe and which should be ignored.

For more information, see Manage the UDT White List.

Manage the Watch List

This is where you can add or delete endpoints and users to or from a Device Watch List.

Polling Interval

This determines how frequently UDT polls a node for port status and what endpoints are connected to the port.

Data Retention

This specifies how long SolarWinds UDT keeps historical information in the database. By default, UDT keeps data for 30 days.

Port Thresholds

This sets the level at which a port will be included in a High Port Utilization Report.

View UDT Job Status

This lets you view the status for the UDT jobs for each node, showing the node name and IP address, job type, date and time for the last time the job was run, date and time for the next time the job will be run.

If you click Poll Now, it runs the corresponding UDT job.

This option shows more port types, review and change settings that determine how frequently UDT contacts AD domain controllers for user account updates, the overall limit for the number of rows UDT could return in search results, and timeouts for SNMP polling, port discovery, layer 3 device discovery, jobs (layer 2 and 3), DNS resolution jobs, cached DNS data.
