Solarwinds & Cisco Live! Barcelona
Join us from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February at Cisco Live 2018 in Barcelona, where we will continue to show how monitoring the network with SolarWinds will keep you ahead of the game. At our booth (WEP 1A), we will demonstrate how SolarWinds network solutions can help. As a bonus, we are also hosting a pre-event webinar - Blame the Network, Hybrid IT Edition with our SolarWinds Head Geek™, Patrick Hubbard on January 24th - GMT (UTC+0): 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. There's still time to RSVP.

Use baselining in the Orion Web Console

Use the baselining feature to display baselines on charts in the Orion Web Console. In the Orion Web Console, you can define general static thresholds for every entity, and you can base alerts on the global static thresholds. However, you can also override the global threshold, and specify a custom dynamic baseline threshold on an entity per entity basis.

The baseline is calculated based on the normal historical distribution of data, taking the mean and standard deviations into account. Baselines can be used to detect and alert on deviations from the average values. Baselines can be calculated automatically, and can be applied as soon as enough statistical data become available. You can also recalculate baselines on demand.

Some of the values that are considered during baseline calculation come from Virtualization Manager. For this reason, baselining only works when the integration with Virtualization Manager is enabled.

List of statistics for which baselines are applicable

vnode statistics

VIM clusters (VMware only)

  • CPULoad
  • MemLoad

VIM hosts

  • NetworkUtilization
  • MemLoad*
  • CPULoad*

VIM virtual machines

  • CPULoad
  • MemLoad
  • CPUReady*
  • IOPSTotal*
  • IOPSRead*
  • IOPSWrite*
  • LatencyTotal*
  • LatencyRead*
  • LatencyWrite*
  • Network Usage Rate

VIM datastores

  • IOPSTotal*
  • IOPSRead*
  • IOPSWrite*
  • LatencyTotal*
  • LatencyRead*
  • LatencyWrite*

* - For these statistics, baselines are only available if the integration with Virtualization Manager is enabled, and the vNodes contain data sent from Virtualization Manager.
