VNQM Getting Started Home

For SolarWinds VNQM to monitor network performance and VoIP quality, you must discover those network devices and add them to Orion for monitoring.

  • If you completed the Network Performance Monitor Getting Started Guide, you may have already discovered your IP SLA-capable Cisco devices and call manager devices. There is no discovery specific to SolarWinds VNQM.
  • If you have not discovered your Cisco or call manager devices, complete the discovery and import sections in the SolarWinds NPM Getting Started Guide, and then return to this guide to add those devices to SolarWinds VNQM.

SolarWinds recommends that you begin by discovering a limited number of routers and call manager nodes and then add more devices as you scale your environment.

If you are unsure if you discovered any network devices, log in to NPM and click My Dashboards > Network > Network Summary. The All Nodes managed by NPM resource lists all network devices discovered and added to Orion for monitoring.

In the following image, dev_ottawa_2621 is a Cisco router that has been discovered and added to the Orion database. This node is used throughout the examples in this getting started guide.
