In certain versions of VNQM, you may experience unusual slowness. You can investigate this by looking at the SolarWinds Information Service (SWIS) log files. When reviewing the SWIS logs, you may find an exception running a specific query:

VNQM Versions earlier than 4.2.2 (SR1)



This issue is fixed in VNQM 4.2.2 (SR1). To resolve this issue, SolarWinds recommends upgrading to VNQM 4.2.2 (SR1), because there are other issues solved in this release.

  4. Make a backup of IpSlaSchema.xml and the IpSlaSchema.resx files. (Do not leave the backup in the installation directory) 
  5. Edit IpSlaSchema.xml file with following changes:


 Search for entity




Replace the following property element:


<property name="NodeID" type="System.Int32" displayName="$Orion.IpSla.VoipGateways.NodeID.displayName" groupBy="true" filterBy="true" />


with the following property element.


<property name="NodeID" type="System.Int32" key="True" displayName="$Orion.IpSla.VoipGateways.NodeID.displayName" groupBy="true" filterBy="true" />


Search for  entity name="Orion.IpSla.InfrastructureNodes". Replace the following property element


<property name="NodeID" type="System.Int32" displayName="$Orion.IpSla.InfrastructureNodes.NodeID.displayName" groupBy="true" filterBy="true" />


with the following property element.
